It all depends on what you are trying to accomplish. Make sure to identify exactly what it is you are trying to achieve and see if the timing is right for YOU. In todays market I would suggest listing your home, inventory is still a major issue and there are a lot of buyers looking to purchase because of the low interest rates. But like I mentioned earlier sit down with a professional full time Realtor and go over the options and see what's right for you. Best of luck!

The holidays is not typically a good time to sell; however, this season the inventory is still very low and there are lots of buyers looking to purchase.

It really depends on your goal in selling your property, do you need to sell quickly or do you want to sell for the highest price possible regardless of how long it takes. Everyone's life and situation is different.

I would suggest you speak with a real estate professional in person and talk about your options.

Holidays are a good time to sell, as many people are free to go and look.

Hope this helps,

While there is still a lack of inventory, yes, it is still a good time to sell.
Occupied homes are typically decorated.
I suggest you sit down with a local Realtor, and discuss your needs to determine if its the best time for you.

Hi bnapoplibb,

The holidays are actually a very good time to sell. Many homeowners tend to think otherwise, yet several factors come together to prove otherwise:

1) January is traditionally the month that companies look to transfer their employees. Transferees are unable to wait until the spring to buy a home. You must be on the market during the holidays to capture that market.

2) I mentioned earlier that many homeowners pull their homes from the market during the holidays. This translates to less competition, resulting in a chance for a quicker sale and a better price for you. And keep in mind, home inventories have already been low for sometime now. This means even fewer homes for sale than normal.

3) The holidays offer a great opportunity to sell with homeowners decorating their homes top to bottom. This allows the Homeowner to create an atmosphere that will really capture the prospective Buyer's hearts and connect on a deeper level with your home as they envision raising and spending many holiday seasons to come with their families in their new home .

I hope I have helped to answer your questions. Should you have more, please let me know!

Warmest Regards,

If you don't have to sell right now, it would be better to list the property at the end of January, beginning of February. I'm happy to meet with you and discuss your options. You can contact me at

Not a good time to sell but it is a good time to buy.
