Every year about this time the real estate market experiences a bit of a slump. Sales in January are typically the lowest they will be all year, and most agents seems to be "on a break" until about March.
But not Scott Neal Real Estate! December and January are usually some of our BEST months!
So why do we think that now is such a great time to sell? Well, let me give you 2 good reasons:
1. Lack of Competition
The average home seller has the thought of "waiting until the Spring or Summer to list" and usually cite many reasons as to why, but if you're really interested in moving now then now is as good a time as any. Since they are waiting a few months, there is less to compete against. And the less competition you have, the better.
2. Motivated Buyers
My experience has shown that the home buyers that are taking time out of their busy schedules to go see homes during the holidays are motivated and ready to buy. If you're just on the fence about buying, it is too much of a hassle to fight crowds, traffic, and use your time off to go window shopping for something you don't really want right now anyways. So the traffic you will get during these times are typically more motivated to buy than other times.
