My husband and I are considering purchasing a home. Should we wait until the summer?
The first week of fall — in 2019 that’s Sunday, Sept. 22 to Saturday, Sept. 28 — is the best time to buy a home in the U.S., according to a report by Realtor.com.
During this time “shoppers will find less competition, more price reductions and more inventory to choose from,” writes Realtor.com economic data analyst Nicolas Bedo.
For the report, Realtor.com crunched 2016 to 2018 data for six supply-and-demand metrics at a national and metropolitan level: online page-views per property on Realtor.com, median listing price, percent of list prices reduced, median days on market, new-listing count and active listing count.
