Are the Holidays slow?

Every year the standard mantra is "nothing sells during the holidays." And every year I buy into it, looking forward to taking a few days off & winding down the end of the year with my family. Unfortunately (and fortunately at the same time), it never seems to work out that way!

Last year, the week between Christmas Day and New Year's Day was our busiest week of the entire year! We had new listings go up for sale, existing listings get offers, buyers write contracts on homes, and homes in escrow closed. From a business perspective, we can only hope next week is as good.

Buyers & Sellers - don't let the time of year, or any popular wisdom out there, influence your decision about moving. If the time is right to buy or sell, let's do it! If you're too busy & distracted by the holidays, let's wait. The time to buy or sell is whenever you're ready to buy or sell.

Happy Holidays everyone!
