Buying and Selling in Vancouver During the Winter

Did you know that winter is a great to buy or sell your house? Even though winter it’s a harsh time for many of us, it’s actually a great time of the year to go for your house hunting once offers in the market might be low which increases your bargain power. Moreover, as a buyer you will face less competition and avoid the bidding wars and even interrupting your plans to acquire your dream home.

Therefore, embrace the winter and count on Amir Miri, Vancouver’s leading realtor in the luxury market, with many years of experience to help you find your new home. 

Limited Offers


During the winter, it’s very common to see a reduction in the number of homes available for sale in Vancouver. For this simple reason, if you are looking to sell your home, this might be the best time once you can leverage this scarcity advantage and make a great deal on your property. 

On the flip side, if you are buying a house, you might face the challenge to find your dream house, first for the reduced number of offers, and second because of the negotiation which can escalate and not fit under your budget. 

Avoiding Bidding Wars


One of the greatest advantages of listing your home during the winter is the almost exclusivity that you might have in the market. Which can provide you the power to set your price, leading the selling process in your favor if you happen to find rush buyers who are tired or are in a rush to find a great place to live in the winter. 

From the buyer perspective, it’s a great time to avoid the bidding wars, once at this time of the year the competition is lower than summer, for example. While people are avoiding going out at any cost, this might be your chance to find your dream house in a very competitive and decent price.

Whether you are buying or selling your house, there's never a bad time to do this. All you need it's to find a respected and trusted professional to help you to make the best deal possible.
