Due to the current cost of living crisis and the stress that it brings, it may feel that there is no ideal time to buy a house. To an extent this is true, there is never going to be a period where everything lines up perfectly. However, there are definitely times where it is better to purchase than others and here at Freeman & Gray, we are going to explain these in more detail.
In short, the best times of the year to buy a house are spring and autumn. This is due to the fact that there tends to be more houses on the market during these periods. This means more choice for buyers and potentially the chance of securing a better deal.
The reason behind why these periods are more fruitful can be put down to holidays. Generally, people holiday more in the summer so there are less properties being put up for sale during this time. The rationale is also similar for winter. During the Christmas period everyone wants to be settled in their homes so there are considerably less houses on the market.
No matter what time of the year you are looking to move, we at Freeman & Gray will be on hand to help. As mentioned above, the spring and autumn time is best but that’s not to say we can’t find you a fantastic house during the more congested periods. We have a highly experienced and extremely friendly team ready to assist you every step of the way in finding your dream home.
