Roger, the answer to this question really lies with you. What is your time frame for moving and what are your primary goals in this transaction? For example, If you are driven only by money, expect to wait a while and sell in the Spring/Summer. It all depends on your goals and needs. I live in Beverly and recently two of the homes I sold there accepted contracts within two weeks of the initial listing. Market time can vary, so really think about what is most important for you, your family and your future. Then, make a plan with your real estate professional. Have a wonderful Christmas Season.
