Why You Should Start House Hunting During Winter

February 9, 2017 1:08 pm Published by

When it comes to homes near Austin, especially the new homes in Kyle, TX, it’s never too early to start looking! Crosswinds in Kyle, TX is the perfect master-planned community to call home, and 2017 is the year to start your search. Here’s why:

Perfect Timing for a Summer Move

Buying a home isn’t always a quick process. However, if you start your search during winter and find a community and home that you love, you can finalize all the details and paperwork in time for a summer move. This is especially great if you have children in school because then they can start out at a new school in August instead of moving in the middle of an ongoing school year.

Less Demand

Winter is the perfect time to start house hunting because there is less competition between homebuyers. With so many homes near Austin being built, there is no shortage of options, but half of the stress of home buying is competing with other potential buyers. Take advantage of the low competition and start your search during these slower months.

Rates are Still Low, But Not for Long

For some time now mortgage rates have been close to record lows, but that is starting to change. Since the presidential election, mortgage interest rates have risen approximately .5 percent, which is actually considered a rapid increase. While experts don’t believe that type of rise will continue, they do expect it to slowly rise throughout 2017 and the coming years. So don’t delay and start searching for your new home before this winter is over!

Our master-planned community will have plenty of new homes in Kyle, TX available, and they’re all being built by three amazing homebuilders that are known for their quality construction and attention to customer service.
