Right now a lot of Buyers and Sellers are waiting until after the year's end to look for or list their home. It's certainly understandable. There are Holiday plans, shopping, guests, decorating. So much to do. Perhaps you're busier at work, too, as your business prepares for year-end.
But the truth is, people never stop moving. Maybe someone is being transferred with their employment. Or wanting to get settled before the new semester starts in January. There are myriad reasons people move during this time of year.
It's true there are fewer Buyers looking right now, but it's also true those Buyers are serious. Sellers who list their home now are competing against fewer listings than in the months after year's end. If you're concerned about packing up your Holidays, often closing dates can be negotiated as part of the contract.
Relocation happens. And it happens regardless of the season. So if you need to buy, know there are homes out there waiting for you. And if you want to sell, there's no time like the present.
Why? Because we never stop moving.
