Great Reasons to Purchase Real Estate in the Off Season

An Oregon hard money loan can provide fast financing


Person handing keys to buyer – Reasons to purchase real estate in off season
The holidays are ending, and the New Year is right around the corner. If you're in real estate or considering getting into investing, you may think now is not the season to be considering a purchase.

But there are good reasons to pursue a real estate purchase during the quieter months of December and January, particularly in a popular market like Oregon.

According to the National Association of Realtors, January closings historically dip in price – indicating buyers negotiate favorable deals during the holiday months.

Benefits of Off Season Real Estate Investments


Preparation is key. But investors can benefit in the off season thanks to:

Less competition: There may be fewer properties on the market, but fewer buyers are typically looking, which means a less competitive atmosphere.

Motivated sellers: Those who have properties on the market this time of year generally need to sell – which can work in your favor.

Know your market – and be willing to make your way through weather when properties of interest come up – and you just may land a dream investment property.
