Find Hawaii homes for sale now and reap the benefits!
The holidays are fast-approaching, and you are probably focused on buying gifts, getting ready for parties, cleaning and fixing up your house, and more. The last thing on your mind is finding Hawaii homes for sale and purchasing a house before year-end.
But, if you act now, you can reap the benefits of buying before year-end and:
- Stay one step ahead of other buyers.
Just like you, people are busy preparing for the holidays and celebrating with family and friends. Most buyers will wait to start looking for a home, or even think about it, until after January 1st.
That’s why it’s the perfect opportunity to begin your search now. With less competition, it will be easier to find your dream home and secure it before someone else does.
- Save time and money.
People who put their house up for sale in December want to sell quickly. After all, they know there are fewer buyers looking right now. Maybe they need money right away, have to move due to a new career, are dealing with tax issues, or something else. Due to this urgency, they will be more likely to work with you on a good selling price and negotiate in your favor. Plus, everyone involved will want to complete the sale and enter all of their transactions in the 2017 tax year.
In addition, you can take advantage of current low interest rates. According to recent stats from Inman:
“The 30-year fixed-rate mortgage (FRM) averaged 3.90 percent with an average 0.5 point for the week ending November 30, 2017, down from last week when it averaged 3.92 percent. A year ago at this time, the 30-year FRM averaged 4.08 percent.”
- Enjoy the holiday spirit.
During the holidays, there is a huge emphasis on being at home with friends and family, sharing happy times and making lifetime memories. For the most part, people feel more charitable and kind during this season. Specifically, in 2016, “nearly 18 percent of charitable giving occurred in December, according to a recent report by the Giving USA Foundation in partnership with the Growth in Giving Initiative,” as quoted in Consumer Reports.
With this in mind, you’ll probably find that the people you deal with regarding your home-buying process will be more pleasant and willing to work with you at this time.
- Get more attention.
Since there is less competition, motivated sellers will pay more attention to your specific needs and be more willing to work with you to close the deal. Also, your agent will probably have fewer clients during the holidays. This means they can give you more of their time to help you find the exact Hawaii homes for sale that fit your specific needs.
- Start 2018 in a new home!
When the holidays end, and the rush begins for most buyers to find a new home, you’ll be finished! You can relax in your living room with an ocean view, cook a great meal in your large kitchen, or entertain friends and family in your outdoor barbeque space.
Plus, you’ll have a huge grin on your face from all of the time, money, and effort you saved in the process!
Are you ready to take advantage of the holiday season and find Hawaii homes for sale right now?
