When it comes to Oakville luxury real estate (and Oakville homes for sale in general) this month is that it’s the last “hot” month until the spring thaw starts in February/March. If you want to move to a new home in the next year, there is no better time to sell than right now. You’ll have a lot more eyes watching the listings for new luxury Oakville homes for sale now than you will in November, December or even January. If you want to buy a home and just don’t want to wait until the Spring market uptick, now is the time to buy, since that’s when people list.
Why is October Hot?
October is the last month before winter comes ‘round the bend. No one in their right mind wants to move in winter, and having a freshly raked lawn along with new paint only sweetens the deal. While the best day to shop for homes is Christmas Day (traditionally anyway), you’ll have a hard time finding sellers who want to show over the holidays.
September is hot, but in October you’re going to find all kinds of deals out there for you if you take advantage of them! With luxury Oakville real estate it’s always great to find a price cut, but make sure you look at why it’s going down (like an overpriced house for example) and weigh if it’s worth the price now and what you’ll have to pay later.
Why Buy and Sell Now?
Other than it’s a good time to get attention and find the offering you want, you’re going to want to look at the big picture. Interest rates right now are not going to get any lower; if you want to be able to save money on a new home and attract buyers who are ready to get a deal, do it now. Oakville luxury real estate is appealing to all kinds of buyers, especially ones in Toronto. You’ll be able to fetch a much better price now than you would if you wait later when all of the new condos come on the market.
Canadians, unlike many other countries, have turned more towards investing in and with their homes. When you invest in Oakville homes for sale you’ll be able to lock in great interest rates, get hot October prices and best of all you’ll have the odds stacked in your favour. If you wait until interest rates start spiralling up and prices to go up, you could miss out on a great deal.
