Buying a Home in the Spring? Watch this Video

Want to buy a house this spring? In today’s video, Dan breaks out the steps you should be taking now to make sure you’re ready to buy come spring.

Consider the following timeline, working in reverse order:

Let’s say your target move-in month is May, the month the lease on your apartment is up.

If you close on your home in March, you don’t have to start payments on your new home until May.

Now, it typically takes 4-6 weeks to close on a home due to inspection periods, appraisals, loan approval, and other processes. That means you’ll want to have found a home and gone under contract by late January to early February.

Based on that projection you still have time, right? Well, according to the National Association of Realtors the average homebuyer spends about 8 weeks house shopping. Based on that estimate, you’ll want to begin looking…right now. That’s right! December is the time to begin looking for a house if you plan to buy in the spring.

The Bottom Line

If you have plans to purchase a home this spring, you may want to begin your home search earlier than you originally planned! The holidays can be a busy time for many, but we strongly advise that you get in touch with your Realtor and begin touring homes. That way, you’ll be prepared for a smooth transition this spring.
