The holiday season can be a great time to find a bargain on a new home, experts say (Photo courtesy Pixabay).

Why would anyone want to buy or sell a house during the holiday season? Who in their right mind would want to pack and move in the middle of all those Christmas parties, family gatherings, and other assorted holiday commitments?

Turns out, plenty of people like to take advantage of a traditionally slower period to go shopping for a new house. (more…)
