Spring might be thought of as the traditional season to list a home, but it turns out that winter can be very good to sellers on Long Island. Tight inventory and low mortgage rates allow only very serious buyers in the winter months. As a result, Long Island real estate experts expect more buyers this season.
According to the real estate firm, Realty Connect USA, based in Hauppauge, the winter real estate market sells faster and tends to sell for more money than any other season. ”The winter months bring out qualified buyers who are very serious about buying a home…anyone who comes out in 20 degree weather is not just browsing around”, states John Fitzgerald, President of Realty Connect.
