1. Beat the Brandon spring rush!
With fewer buyers looking for homes because of the cooler weather - you will have less competition and when you do find that perfect home you will be less likely to find yourself in a competing offer situation.
2. More room for Negotiating!
Sellers may be more motivated to sell at a lower price because buyers are hard to come by. Also you are more likely to be in control of important terms of the deal, such as possession date!
3. Real Estate professionals have more time!
During the winter months it's true that the real estate market slows down. This works in your favour because home inspectors, lawyers, mortgage brokers and real estate agents will have more time for you compared to the busier warmer months.
