Are you trying to decide if you should stick it out in your apartment until summer rolls around? This could be a huge mistake. Most people move between the months of May and September. If you’re apartment hunting during the winter months you can actually save on your moving costs and find a better deal on your new place.
It has been a particularly brutal winter in many parts of the country. Even in the comfort of a warm apartment in the company of family and friends, winter brings about unique challenges – dealing with being cooped up inside, staying exercise-inspired, worrying about the heating bill, and staying cold- or flu- free.
If you talk to anyone in the real estate business about selling homes, they’ll probably be quick to tell you that putting your home on the market in the winter is a lost cause, no matter how much home staging you do. They’ll claim that the lack of daytime and chilly weather will put a hamper on any prospective homeowner’s desire to buy.
