Now that the Holiday Season is upon us, many home sellers are waiting until the holidays are over to list their home. Some home buyers are also waiting.
What we are finding is that if you list your home for sale now during the holiday season, we have less showings but the home showings we get are serious buyers. Let’s face it, it is probably the best time in our lifetime to buy real estate and many home buyers are realizing that. Prices are low, interest rates are low, FHA loans are available with a minimum down payment and let’s not forget about the credits for first time home buyers and repeat buyers until spring of 2010. This is bringing home buyers and investors out even during the busy holiday season.
The competition is also lower now vs the spring time when a majority of home sellers list their homes for sale, so you can really stand out and shine.
If you are facing a challenging time (facing a possible foreclosure or shortsale) and are procrastinating in calling a Realtor for a consultation due to the holidays. Wouldn’t it be nice to go into the holidays and know what your options are? My real estate team meets with people all the time and helps them see thier options and timing. Sometimes there are options that don’t require you to sell your home. Information is free from us.
Have a Happy Holiday Season!
