If you're looking for a home here in Vancouver during the holiday season, it probably means you need to find a new home. It's not just a move you're thinking about for the future.
Perhaps you're relocating to Vancouver for a new job, coming because family needs you nearby, or you've simply sold your previous home and want/need to get settled.
In that case, there's good news for you.
You'll have less competition – and less chance of getting into a "bidding war" over the home you want. Not only are fewer buyers looking right now, many agents are taking time off, making it more difficult for buyers to connect with their agents to arrange showings.
You'll have fewer homes to view – which is a mixed blessing. It's true that you won't have as many choices, but that will save you time in looking. And… those sellers who choose to interrupt their lives with showings during the holidays are just as motivated as you are. Coming to an agreement could be easier than it would be in mid-summer.
What about holiday décor covering up flaws? Don't worry. Your home inspector will look behind the décor.
So if you want or need to find a home in Vancouver during the holidays, get in touch. I'm here, working, and happy to help you find the home of your dreams.
