The holiday season is now in full swing, and most people think there isn’t much going on in the real estate world. However, this December, as in Decembers past, we at the Lund Group have been quite busy helping buyers and sellers. We put 6 properties under contract in November and most of them will be closing in December.
We will also be working with sellers this month to get their homes on the market sooner, rather than later. Homes show beautifully when decorated for Christmas. Although there are not as many buyers looking at this time, those who are out looking at homes tend to be very serious about making a purchase. As a seller, you would have fewer showings, yet those who are looking at homes, instead of Christmas shopping, will be serious buyers!
In addition, many families relocating from another area will be making the move while children are out of school at the mid-year break. After the holidays, there will be considerably more competition since many people wait and list their homes after the first of the year.
Right now, inventory remains extremely low, and interest rates are beginning to climb. If you are thinking of selling your home, you will have the best chance to get the highest price right now.
That is why as we roll into 2016, we are encouraging our sellers to go on the market as soon as they can.
Wishing you and yours a wonderful holiday season!
