The single best month to buy a home, according to this analysis of 33 million home sales over 8 years

According to a recent analysis of more than 33 million single family home and condo sales over the past 8 years conducted by ATTOM Data Solutions, a provider of real estate and property data, the best time to close on a house is in October. “The day after Christmas usually offers the biggest price discount as sellers try to woo a smaller pool of homebuyers during the winter months,” says Denny Ceizyk, senior mortgage writer for LendingTree. Closing in October typically means you got your offer accepted in August or September, explains Holden Lewis, home and mortgage expert at NerdWallet.
