The Best Time to Buy Houses

It's best to bundle up when looking for the best deal on a house, as reduced demand and lackluster appearance can lead to a better deal in winter.

Because no one wants to pull the kids out of school for a week or haul boxes when it's 40 below, most homes go on the market in the spring, with sales closing in the summer.

The average home price during these months is higher as well.

Although the homes sold in the spring tend to be larger, that might not make up for the difference in price. Homes sold in the winter lose some "curb appeal" because the landscape is dormant.
