Bend Oregon Home

Bend Oregon Home

By Jason Boone


It’s been an awesome year for Real Estate and as we approach the winter months many home buyers are wondering if they should wait to buy a Bend Oregon Home until the spring.


Analyze Your Personal Situation


Although many people will tell you that yes it’s a good idea to wait to buy a home until the spring, your decision to wait or continue your home search depends solely on your personal situation and asking yourself these questions.


  • Are you buying a primary residence or investment property?
  • Will you be using your own funds or getting a mortgage loan?
  • How long will you own the home?


Wait Or Buy Now?


There’s no denying that the Holidays will slow the Real Estate market some as most homeowners will wait to list their homes until the spring and some buyers will wait to buy a Bend Oregon Home until the holidays are over.


Regardless if you plan on buying a home for your primary residence, or as an investment home, it’s a good time to continue your home search during the holidays because, you will deal with less competition from other home buyers and homeowners who list their homes during the winter will be motivated to sell.


Great Time to Test a Home


Another awesome reason why you should consider buying a home during the winter is that you will have the unique opportunity to really see if a home’s plumbing, heating, gutters and roof are really functioning as they should or not.


Knowing that all of the “big systems” in a home are working without any problems will ultimately put your mind at ease and give you confidence that you won’t have to invest tens of thousands of dollars to replace a furnace or make roof repairs when it snows or gets even colder.
