The end of spring and beginning of summer show the most home buying and selling activity. According to seasonal statistics, about 60 percent of all homes are sold during these prime months. But as the temperature heats up near the end of summer, home selling activity slows down. There are many reasons for this: uncomfortable temperatures, vacations, and not a lot of new inventory. But for those willing it sweat it out, this a great time to find bargains.
Here are a few tips for snagging those end-of-summer deals:
Look For a Long History
Check out homes that were listed in the spring and have been on the market for 60 days or more. If the property has only just been listed and put on the market, the seller will likely want to receive a full-price offer. If it’s been on the market for a few months, the owners might be ready to make a deal.
