The Art of Real Estate: All Things Merry & Bright

Believe it or not, December can be an excellent time to find a home!

If you’re up for braving the elements (which are still pleasant on the Oregon Coast even during the winter months), then shopping in the low season might get you into a home for less money than you’d spend during the springtime or summer months.

Tax benefits –

Looking for some end-of-year tax deductions? If you close your home purchase before the end of the year, you can deduct certain costs from your 2019 tax return!
• Mortgage interest
• Loan points
• Property taxes
Remember, mortgage interest costs tend to be especially high in the early years of a home loan. So, this could be a nice last-minute tax break for your family.

Motivated sellers –

With the holidays looming and a new tax year nearly upon them, sellers who put their homes on the market in December might be especially motivated to close the deal and start the new year fresh.

You get a realistic look at properties –

Winter home-shopping allows a chance to see real-estate properties in a clearer light. With flowers gone and curb appeal at a minimum, shoppers can more easily focus on the permanent features of the home & see themselves in the warmth of your holiday home decor.

Sometimes buying or selling during this already busy time of year is overwhelming, but the team of RE/MAX Coast and Country is here to help in every way!

Reach out, we’d love to hear from you!
