Why October is a great time to buy

The leaves are falling, the telltale pumpkin spices are in the air, and homebuyers are making their moves. What makes this season a great time to take the leap into homeownership? Let’s find out now…

Avoid the holiday rush

When you have a mile-long gift list and you’re facing all the normal stressors of the holiday season, there may not be room on your calendar for visiting communities and model homes with your real estate agent. Get the legwork for your house hunt done ahead of the hustle and bustle. When you build from the ground up, there will be a wait time while construction is underway. Why not contract now and be in a new home sooner in the new year? We can’t think of a greater gift.

Beat the weather

Whether because of high heat or a snow storm, there will be days that aren’t as comfortable for house hunting in the extreme months of summer and winter. Perhaps that’s why we see homebuyer traffic pick up in the spring and fall. While our sales centers are open all year round, beautiful temperate weather certainly makes for more pleasant model home tours.
