Spring has been a historically popular time for people to buy and sell homes, but what are some of the major factors behind that trend? Tim Manni, Home and Mortgage Expert at Nerdwallet joins Your Future Home to explain why you may want to purchase your home in the next few months.
One of the main reasons spring is the prime time to buy a house is the good weather. Manni explains that for buyers, it's no fun going out in freezing temperatures, trudging through snow, or having to take boots off at someone's front door. Buyers can't get a true sense of what a home looks like, or even its condition, if there's snow on the ground.
Plus, if you want to buy in the spring Manni says you need to start preparing now! Get your documentation together, get pre-approved for a mortgage, and find a realtor you like. This process could take a few months, so being prepared in advance will make the home buying process a lot smoother.
