Best time to buy?

We get asked often what the best time to buy a house in Nome is.  The answer isn’t as cut and dried as you might think!

The summer months typically have a larger inventory. The winter months tend to have better prices as owners are either stuck paying the fuel bills on an empty house or they aren’t able to leave Nome until the house sells.

My advice is to go ahead, get yourself prequalified with a lender.  Don’t be afraid to ask friends, family, or your realtor to recommend a lender…..I promise you will regret that online lender who promised you the moon and stars, get someone who is familiar with Nome.

Once you are prequalified, you are ready to make an offer on your home immediately when it comes on the market.  New listings happen all the time, all year round.  Your home could come and go while you are scrambling to get your lender paperwork together.
