As you make the last minute additions to your holiday wish list, you may want to consider including a new Covenant Hills custom home to the mix.

Besides offering potential residents the benefits of living in a beautiful community with a wealth of amenities including parks, clubhouses and trails, this just might be the most wonderful time of the year to buy a home.

Less Competition: Because the holiday season is typically a slower time of year for the real estate market, you are less likely to be competing against other interested buyers for the Covenant Hills home of your dreams. No bidding war means a truly happy holiday for you.

Lower Prices: A seller who lists their home during the holidays may be more motivated than most to move into their new home by the end of the year. If you come in with a reasonable offer, you could successfully negotiate a lower price on the property.

Better Mortgage Terms: While the pace for the real estate market slows during this season, the lending industry generally experiences a reduction in clients as well.  Many mortgage companies advertise lower rates and special offers during the holidays to drive more business, allowing you to negotiate better mortgage terms.

Head Start on Landscaping: Buying a home during the holidays will help you get an early start on your spring landscaping ideas, and when planting season hits, you will have your plans ready to go and all of your flowers looking fabulous come springtime.
