4 Reasons It's Good To Be A Winter Home Buyer In Cincinnati

It's cold, but that might not be a bad thing!4 Reasons It's Good To Be A Winter Home Buyer In Cincinnati

Home shopping when there's snow on the ground and the wind is blowing right through every layer of clothing might not be at the top of the list of your preferred activities, but did you know there's some definite perks to be a Cincinnati home buyer during the winter months?

1.  The sellers are serious about selling.  Think about it, would YOU have your home on the market and get chased out for showings if you weren't serious about getting a SOLD sign in your yard?  There aren't as many buyers looking this time of year, so when YOU show up and you present a REASONABLE offer, the odds of coming to terms are way better.

2.  This is when you see the home at its least private.  The leaves are off all but the evergreens, and frankly there aren't that many evergreens around here.  Now is the time to find out if your neighbor is going to be just too close, or you're going to be staring at their TV in the family room and knowing EXACTLY what show they're watching.

3.  Now's when you find out if the driveway and surrounding roads are a hassle.  That driveway angle that is a piece of cake during dry conditions may be impassable with a bit of snow on the driveway.  And that twisty road to your home may be an invitation to find out how much is your car's insurance deductible.

4.  There are pros to home inspections.  True, the roof covered in snow means you can't check out the shingles and flashing, but it might also tell you something if there are big melt patterns or you see ice dams.  And that furnace just might be straining for everything its worth too.  You're more likely to notice a chilly draft too.
