Real Estate Pros know Holiday Time is Prime Time

There is a myth about home buying and selling that we need to throw away with overdue Thanksgiving meal leftovers. The myth is that the holiday season is a bad time to buy or sell a home. Not true! It is one of the best times!

Here are four reasons why the most experienced real estate buyers and sellers know now is the best time of the year to make a a great deal:

1. Get serious: during the winter months, sellers are serious about selling and buyers are serious about buying. Quality is better than quantity, and you'll get a real, no-nonsense experience from November through February.

2. Own your schedule: Because there is less volume of traffic (because you've weeded out the Sunday browsing crowd), sellers are in better control of their schedules. No wasted time on meaningless showings or over-booked calendars to handle the volume when you know that most people are just looking out of curiosity. 

3. Beat the competition: If you know what you want as a buyer and are pricing to sell as a seller, then this is your season. The lack of competition is actually an advantage for both parties. Buyers have some increased leverage in negotiation and sellers can stand out more in the smaller crowd of options. 

4. Embrace the season: The holidays are when we all remember, cherish and celebrate family and this wonderful sense of being home. What better time to buy or sell a home than in the season dedicated to celebrating home and family? Buyers and sellers will be in that mindset of finding a place where they can see themselves gathering during the most important time of the year.
