It’s a fact of military life. At a moment’s notice, even during the coldest time of the year, military families get orders to move across the country or around the world.

As a homebuyer, that timing could work in your favor. According to the National Association of Realtors, the slowest selling months are November to February. That’s when median sales prices of homes are typically lower and properties stay on the market an average of 90 days. As a result, many of the home buying pros you’ll need to rely on — realtors, brokers, and lenders — do less business during the winter months and will have more time available to assist you in finding and buying your new home.

See the 5 reasons why buying a home in winter could work for you.
