Spring has long been considered the best time of the year to shop for and buy a new home.  And, seeing that 2013 was an incredible year for the housing market, it’s been predicted that this upcoming spring season will be just as successful.

However, this approaching home buying season differs from years past.  This year, smart homebuyers are moving quickly to find their new home as soon as they can – even if that means they’ll be ‘spring shopping’ in winter.  In fact, this is quite a common trend and has become more prevalent since 2009.  Pair early competition with changes in mortgage rates and the overall favorable market, and home shoppers have every reason to buy the minute they find their dream home.

While it may only be February, there are already signs pointing to this spring shopping season creeping into winter.  Serious home shoppers are beating out the competition by looking for a home before others are even thinking about it – certainly not a bad idea.  When the masses enter the housing market beginning in spring, they could possibly drive up prices as well as make finding the right home more challenging.  Increases in competition could be especially true for our townhomes at Marina Landing and Wharton’s Bluff, where supplies are limited and demand is high.

Regardless of whether you’re shopping in Delaware or Virginia, Christopher Companies has a home that’s perfect for you and your family.  Both Wharton’s Bluff in Sussex County, DE and Marina Landing in Prince William County, VA hold up to the Christopher Companies name and provide beautiful luxury townhomes.  And, both communities feature breathtaking water views, a unique find in any community.

There’s no doubt that the start of the spring home buying season will bring new families to our communities.  And we must agree with the headlines; this is one of the best times to buy a new home.  Pricing is just right for all types of home shoppers, the national average rate on a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is historically low, and the new homes on the market are better than ever – just take a look at our newly built models!

The townhomes built by Christopher Companies are truly exceptional, but don’t take our word for it!  Visit the Marina Landing and Wharton’s Bluff pages on our website to view photos and floor plans and to find more information on how you can move into one of these beautiful new homes.
