You probably think that early summer is the best time to buy a home because the supply is at its highest. You would be correct about the number of options you will have to choose from. But competition from other buyers will be at its peak. In hot neighborhoods like the West Loop a new place on the market can easily have 10 showings in its first few days on the market and will often receive multiple offers within days. Buyers barely have time to think it over if they find a place they love. Worst case scenario you end up in a bidding war.

Over the winter there will not be many buyers looking. They are busy with the holidays and if they have kids they do not want to move in the middle of a school year.  That is what makes winter the best time to bargain hunt. This January there were 3823 attached homes for sale in Chicago and that had grown to 4673 by June. That is only 22% less homes to choose from in January.  You may think the only thing on the market in January is condos that have been sitting on the market forever and that nothing new will come up. That is not the case. Over 1900 new places were listed this January. Less than in June but still a healthy amount. Sellers are also going to be more anxious to sell. There are less buyers, the market is slow and if they were not in a hurry to sell they would have waited for the spring to list their place.

Tromping around in the cold Chicago weather may not be appealing but if you are willing to do it you may just find your dream home at a bargain price.

Finding a house is a bit of a hassle with only a few houses listed during the spring there is also competitors in buying the house you want. I do not plan on looking for a house during winter so I don't bother looking at the market, however finding a dream house is my goal for this year and I plan on looking for it no matter what the season is. I will start looking for a house in the market starting fall in order to have many options to choose from. I was nervous that I won't be able to find my dream house this year, but because of what you said I am positive that I will be able to find it. Thanks for this informative post, it makes sense that winter can be a great time to buy a house here in Chicago.

Chicago is the best place if you're looking for a place. Chicago is famous for its bold architectures and gorgeous skycrapers. Who wouldn't want to live in a famous city? I mean, I do. I always wanted to chill on top of the building, just over looking on the busy Chicago night while eating the best fried chicken. There are also a lot of opportunities at Chicago, so I think it is the best place for you!

One of the appeals of aquatic plants is that they become more attractive as they grow. This is a characteristic that is only true for living plants and not for artificial ones. On the other hand, the very characteristic of growing can be problematic for enjoying an aquatic plant layout.

Commercial real estate is a great option for investing in real estate.Though many only think in terms of residential real estate, there are big (in fact huge) profits to be made in commercial real estate investing. Apartments, rental units, strip malls, retail space, warehouses even vacant land are all commercial investments with huge profit potential.
