No, not on the specific holidays of Thanksgiving and Christmas, I will not be working then! I am taking time like everyone else does, to be with family and friends. That said, homes are being bought and sold all throughout this time of year. I will be working with clients and helping them buy and sell right up through the end of the year.
If you are selling, there is less competition because more than a few folks have pulled their homes off of the market to avoid showing hassles. The buyers that are in the market are there because they NEED a place to live. Pro-tip: The seasons have changed. Your listing photos need to reflect the CURRENT weather, climate and season!
And there seems to be less of a hassle at the moment in getting financing set up as well. Lenders have just a little bit more time on their hands to offer friendlier and more personable service. (Note: Towards the end of the year this is subject to change, but right now it is true!)
Are you worried about having to show your home on a holiday? Don't be. Buyers are typically not out and looking on those EXACT days but that is no reason to throw out the other days and weeks of the month.
So we are here to help right up until the ball drops on 2015 and beyond.
And a question to my other REALTOR friends out there... are you working right up through the holiday season? Please feel free to comment below.
