It might be hard to believe that Thanksgiving is only a few days away, with the December holidays soon to follow. Before you know it, the new year will be here, and if you’re planning to buy a home in 2020, then Coldwell Banker Preferred, Realtors® in Bakersfield is here to help. Our expert team of agents can help you find the perfect property in a prime location, no matter if you want to move to the north part of the city, a neighborhood to the southwest, or even downtown!

Start Looking Now

If you’re hoping to be in your new house by January, then it’s best to start looking at properties now. While fewer people may be searching for homes for sale during this time of year, there may still be some competition from other buyers. Starting your home shopping now can help you find the properties that appeal to you, and you’ll still have time to decide which one is right for you before settling on a closing date with the seller.

Move During Winter Vacation

For families with school-age children, winter vacation can be the perfect time to move to a new home. The kids are on break, so you won’t have to worry about disrupting their schedule while relocating to your new home. They’ll also be around to help you pack, and they’ll have the chance to settle into their new surroundings before going back to school for the spring semester.

You may also have time off from work for the holidays, as well as vacation time that you need to use before the end of the year. If you’re looking to buy a home, then you can use that time to attend open houses, meet with your Realtor®, and plan your move.

New Year, New Home

Buying a house in January can be a great way to start the new year. You’ll have a brand new calendar in front of you, and you can start making improvements and upgrades before your schedule gets hectic once again. While things are a bit slower during the first few months of the year, you can focus on setting up the house however you want, whether that means painting walls or buying new furniture.
