Every day is a good day to buy a home; this is the attitude when you are a Realtor and you love real estate. If you need a place to live, it's a good day to buy. However I typically sell & earn 20%-25% of my GCI in the 4th quarter annually, so San Diegans seem to think the Holidays are a great time to buy & sell..

Any time you need to buy a home is a "good" time to buy a home - unless the market is in the process of sliding off a cliff - in which case it's far better to rent.

I would assume if a particular seller is desperate to sell and/or buyer is in need to purchase before the close of the year, then it could be good.  Otherwise, i would imagine it would be hard to keep people focused on the transaction.

In Tucson, AZ?  Yes, in fact I have purhcased two investment properties during the week of Thanksgiving.  Things tend to slow down here at that time, some sellers want to get the property sold before year end, many opportunties for buyers.  With the rising rates, those are my concerns for the buyers in the very near future.  Happy holidays.
