Now's the time to jump on "Black Friday" week deals

by Deelyn Robinson

Homes like this all-brick, move-in perfect house at 4909 Westmoreland Dr. are especially hot during "Black Friday" week. 


Imagine if November’s “Black Friday” deal-driven shopping frenzy lasted a week? Well, it does last a week in real estate – and it’s THIS week!

Data released by indicates the week of Sept. 22 is the best time to buy a home because of less competition and a spike in inventory and price reductions.

Because so many families are focused on getting settled for the new school year instead of shopping for houses, buyers in general face 26% less competition across most U.S. markets surveyed.

At the same time, inventory increases by 6 percent. And of those homes, another 6 percent will be reduced in price.

The inventory of luxury homes sees a marked increase this time of year, said senior economist George Ratiu.

“There [are] a lot of opportunities for luxury buyers,” he said.

Because things can happen quickly, contributor Stephanie Vozza advises deal-seeking buyers to:

* be alert to price reductions in their chosen area.

* get preapproved for funding

* be willing to close quickly

* make their strongest offer right away

* ask their agent for a market analysis of comparable home sales.

I would be delighted to do a complementary market analysis for you. Please contact me at [email protected] or 757-503-1999 if I can help you this week – or any week at all.
