As we welcome in 2021, there are plenty of exciting opportunities to buy a home in Maple Crest! Peak home buying season usually approaches in the spring and summer months, but what about in the winter? Buying a home in the winter can have many advantages! There are plenty of advantages to building a new home or buying a quick possession in the winter!


Less Competition


Buying a home in the winter is a great choice as it’s not “busy season” for builders. This means you will often be at the front of the line with your builder. The sales team will have more time to talk you through different options and finishes, plus, there will likely be faster and easier communication if you have a question, since there are less people building at a time. You may also be able to get a better price than in the summer when there is more competition.


Great Timeline for Kids


Building a new home in Maple Crest takes between six and eight months. If you buy a new build in the winter, that means you’ll end up moving in in the summertime. This is an easier transition for kids who may need to change school districts or get used to having a new house to live in. Buying a home in winter can make it a lot easier for your children to adjust to the change!



Mortgages and Interest Rates are Lower


Because winter isn't the housing market’s busy season, you can sometimes get a lower interest rate than you would in the spring when the housing market is busier. Buying a home in the winter is a great way to potentially save a little money! According to Edmonton Homes For Sale, the price of real estate is on the rise and is projected to increase by 2% in the upcoming year. That means that buying a home now, in the winter, is your best bet at getting the best priced home in 2021.


Test Your New Home’s Energy Efficiency


Brand new homes are built with the best energy-efficient materials available. Your new home will have all new windows, insulation, and doorsl, and having a brand-new furnace, water heater, appliances, and light fixtures can be an amazing asset! Energy efficient features save you money when it comes to heating and running your home, and they also reduce your environmental impact! There’s no better time to experience energy efficiency and draft-free living than in the winter, so purchasing a quick possession home now is a fantastic idea!
