Is the Holiday Season a Good Time to Buy/Sell Real Estate?
It’s the most wonderful time of the year.
But… is the holiday season really the most wonderful time of year to buy and/or sell real estate?
My answer is: It depends.
The cons to selling a home in the month of December are that people are distracted by the holidays and the selling process may be held up due to all of the activities people have going on. Similarly, if you are buying, things tend to move a hair slower.
One pro to selling is that a lot of other sellers out their aren’t putting there homes on the market, so your home may be one of the handful to really stand out for prospective buyers. Similarly, if you are buying, there will be less buyers braving the weather and holiday season that you need to compete with.
With these general observations in mind, it always best to consult with your Realtor. The market, the inventory and several other factors always come into play.
I’m happy to help you ring in the season and new year with a professional’s perspective.
