Selling in a Winter Wonderland?

There are many who think that December is a good time to remove a house from the market, believing that buyers are more likely to get caught up in all things Christmas rather than taking the time to look for a new home.  I do not concur with this notion.  Your home will not sell if you take it off the market.  It is my job as a realtor to take care of the showings and the marketing while you relax and enjoy this special season.  With reduced inventories and motivated buyers, you will have more realtors working for you than in busier times.  With so many people taking holidays, it's a great time to get couples to see your home together as well.  Don't forget about re-locating families, who often don't have a choice as to when they move and with school starting again in January, parents are eager to have their children settled by then.  Finally, your home is most likely looking its best as you prepare to offer hospitality to friends and family during the Christmas holidays.  Start a fire, light some candles and buyers will easily be able to picture themselves in your cozy home.
