Why rainy, dreary days are the best time to shop for a house.
January 14, 2013
Today’s weather forecast in my area calls for rain and plunging temperatures. Already, the weather outside is deteriorating. Listening to my radio, I just heard an interview with a real estate person on this rainy, dreary day. He made a side comment to the effect that today was “probably not a good day to go look at a house.”
I disagree. I think that rainy, dreary days are the best time to look at a house. You can see where the water drains, you can tell if there is a leaky roof, etc. Looking at a house on a rainy day might even be a way to show the owner that you are a serious buyer. After all, who would be out looking at house on a day like today except serious buyers?
