Winter House Hunting

Winter is no time to hibernate from your house hunt.   Frequently the best assets of a new home can be tested in the depths of winter.  

By monitoring winter from each room, you’ll get a good feel for the overall home temperature, potential drafts, condition and sound of the furnace as well as the general comfort of the house.   Your confidence in a home can be exemplified by extreme weather, giving a good indication that if you are comfortable now, then you certainly will be when the weather improves. 

The winter foliage, or lack of it, exposes piles, unsightly collections and neighborhood yards that may otherwise be hidden by trees, leaves and bushes.   

Real estate traffic subsides during the winter months allowing you to get the proper attention you deserve as you make one of life’s important decisions.   It is worth a look.   Gain a new perspective and perhaps find your dream home in a cold, yet comfortable, less competitive season.
