There are advantages to buying a home during the winter months, aka "off season" here at the beach.
1. Less Competition. There is less competition from other buyers. Many buyers do not want to brave the icy roads where they live to venture south to the beach areas of Sussex County. This could translate into a good deal for you.
2. More Time With Your REALTOR®. Typically your Real Estate Agent is not as busy this time of year which translates into more time for you!
3. Ugly Ducklings. Some houses that are still on the market in January & February may have been on the market for a long time. This long market time could be for a variety of reasons including that the house was priced incorrectly or it could be that the house simply does not show very well. It's an ugly duckling. Maybe it's too crowded with too many of the seller's personal belongings, maybe the interior paint colors are not very appealing, maybe the lighting is bad or worse yet maybe the house is dirty. All of these things are an easy fix once you own the property. If you can look through these items now, you may get a great deal!#shareaholic#
