With Thanksgiving in just one week, the holidays are about to be in full swing. Is this a good time to be buying or selling real estate??? The answer is YES!
During these busy times with family many potential sellers do not want to have the inconvenience of keeping their homes spic and span and having to decline showings because of the Christmas dinner party they are hosting. This is good because there are LESS homes that your home has to compete with than in the traditional "busy season" (spring and summer). There are also LESS buyers in the market, this is good because quality is better than quantity. The buyers that are taking time out from their holiday festivities to shop for homes are most likely ready, willing and able buyers.
If you are a buyer it's the perfect time because there are not as many buyers in the market, this is great because you aren't competiting in such a fierce market. The homes that come on the market and are in great condition, location and priced according to the market will go quickly. The bottom line is the seller's are motivated to sell, buyers are motivated to buy. Not to mention this season the interest rates are at historical lows, which is a great thing for everyone!
If you are or someone you know is looking to buy or sell in this holiday season, give me a call and I'll be happy to assist you!
