Benefits of moving in winter :

  • Lower home prices and rents if you plan a local move to Riverside or San Bernardino County. With less demand from buyers during winter, sellers reduce prices to attract interest. January sees the lowest average home prices.
  • Negotiation leverage. Lower demand also allows you to negotiate prices further. Sellers are often eager to list their properties in winter.
  • Less competition. Fewer buyers in winter means you’re more likely to get the home you want.
  • Moving discounts. Winter is the slow season for movers, so companies may offer promotions to get business.
  • Avoid paying double rent. Most leases end Dec 31st, so you can fully prepare both homes in January without overlap.
  • Calm after the holidays. With parties and celebrations over, January brings a sense of calm ideal for packing and planning.
  • Clean slate. A January move lets you start the new year fresh in a new home.
  • Take your time. Less urgency in winter allows you to move at a more relaxed pace.

New beginnings. What better time for a fresh start than the start of a new year? January is the perfect time to move if you want lower prices, less competition, great deals, and a clean slate in the new year.
