Fall is the New Spring for Homebuyers in Las Vegas
Do you want a new home for the holidays in the Las Vegas, NV area? The Tuesday after Labor Day through Thanksgiving marks one of the busiest times of the year for those in the market for a new home. As summer begins to fade out (and with it those 100 degree and higher temperatures), folks in Vegas begin to take an interest in extending their lives past the tethers of air conditioned spaces. One of the reasons? Fall is an exceptional time to find a new place to call home.
Imagine spending the holidays in a new home and welcoming the New Year with living space to match the needs of your family. Do you want your next home to have a fireplace for romantic winter nights or a pool and spa to complete your own home resort and health club? Your home is your castle – humble or extravagant – so make sure it has the features that best suit your lifestyle.
The first step in home buying is to become pre-qualified for a home loan. When home shopping already prequalified for a mortgage, you’re signaling to any potential seller that they are dealing with a serious buyer, ready to pounce on the chance to upscale (or downsize) the minute you find your dream home. Fall is also a perfect time for first-time home buyers including young couples and single professionals or snowbirds ready to invest in their winter home, unencumbered by the need to move based on the annual school schedule.
Another benefit of making a home purchase before the first of the year is that many of the costs associated with the purchasing process are tax deductible. The tax benefits may be the strongest driver for some buyers. Pair the benefits for buyers with motivated sellers and great deals can be had in places like Las Vegas and surrounding communities since sellers generally want to seal a deal before the holidays get too close.
Don’t wait too long to start looking if you plan a home purchase this fall. According to Vegas Inc., sales were up 8 percent in the three months ending June 30, 2015 from the same period last year. That means you’ll likely have some competition from other buyers. The right lender is a critical partner in helping you make an offer on a home with confidence.
