Winter is Coming Top Markets for House Hunting

Top Markets for House Hunting according to Trulia.

The biggest shocker of all: San Francisco topped the list as the best city to buy a home in during the winter. (But then, it was Mark Twain who once said, “The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco.”)

This is welcomed news given that the city is the fastest moving market in the country.

According to Trulia, in San Francisco and Oakland, California, the pace of sales increased by 19% and 17% (proportion increase, not percentage points) between winter and summer over the past three years.

This doesn’t mean that there will be no competition in the winter, but for those homebuyers who couldn’t lock in a home in the summer, maybe try again this winter.

Here is the list of the top 10 markets for winter house hunting.
