When is it time to list my home

Can I list my home this time of year? This has long been a question home Sellers ask. From 1990 when I started as a Realtor until the market of 2004 the answer was nothing sells during the Holidays. From 2004 through 2006 it didn't matter when you listed your house there was a Buyer waiting to buy it. Then by 2007 we saw the start of what has been the worst housing market since the Great Depression. Today we are in a market fueled by the First Time Home Buyer Tax Credit, and this has only been extended until April 30,2010. These Buyers are out looking & buying homes now, since Thanksgiving we have received 3 Accepted Offers on properties where the Buyer is looking to close as soon as 12-31-09 and as late as the first of February. If you are priced in the first Time Home Buyer range you should be listing your home by no later than January 10,2010. If you would like pricing information on your home please contact us or go to JimAndNancyTeam.com

Happy Holidays
