3 Reasons to Start Home Shopping in January

Now that the holidays have come to an end and the seasonal hustle has slowed, it’s the perfect time to start looking for your dream home. While spring and summer may get a lot of hype for being the best time to buy, here are three reasons why you should get a head start and begin looking now.

  1. Beat the Crowd
    When the droves of homebuyers pour into the market during spring and summer, the increased competition could make it more difficult to get the home of your choice.

    This is especially important in a coveted new construction community like The Hamlet Estates, which only has seven new estate lots remaining for purchase, as well as a limited selection of Builder Showcase homes available for immediate occupancy.

  2. Better Prices
    With less competition come lower prices. By acting now, you can get in before prices increase during spring and summer. The lower price may also enable you to get a larger home than you’ll be able to afford during peak season.
  3. Lower Interest Rates
    In 2017, interest rates are expected to rise, making now the best time to lock in a lower rate. Just like with the better prices, the lower rate may help you afford a more expensive home.

Thanks to solid sales activity throughout 2016, The Hamlet Estates now has only seven new estate lots remaining for purchase, as well as a limited selection of Builder Showcase homes that are available for immediate occupancy. Where else on the North Shore can homeowners find such an extraordinary lifestyle? “The Hamlet Estates really is a unique residential opportunity,” notes Roseanne Murray, Director of Sales at the community.
