As we head into the winter months, home prices will begin to drop slightly, as is normal for this time of year. Even though the market, in general, is on the rise, we'll likely still see a small dip in prices this winter. Historically, prices tend to increase in the spring through early fall, and then soften a bit as it gets colder. So, sellers, don't get discouraged! Prices are still rising overall, but buyers can take advantage of the slight dip in home prices by purchasing properties this winter.
