With the holidays right around the corner, do you really want to put your house on the market? Will there actually be buyers out looking?


Ever since the market meltdown, our Northern Arizona market has been very active during the holidays. One thing that I love about where we live is that people come to town to visit and get all cooped up on Thanksgiving day. The next day, they want to get out and about and enjoy this beautiful area. One of the best days I’ve had in real estate is the day after Thanksgiving! The day after Christmas is good as well.

The day after Thanksgiving is one of the best days in real estate.

If you’ve been on the fence about listing your home, know that in the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas, not many people list their homes on the market. People get scared and want to wait until the new year to sell. However, interest rates are as low as they’ve been in a long time and I believe they will go up after the new year. They can only be on the bottom for so long. Additionally, it doesn’t matter who gets elected; people always need a place to live.

Lower inventory can really maximize your value. As a buyer, it’s also a great time to look for a home because there will be a lot of highly motivated sellers. Houses will be decorated and beautiful for when their families come over.

If you find yourself asking “To list or not to list?” I always go with “list!”

If I can be of any assistance to you in the real estate process, or you’re still not sure if now is the right time for you to buy or sell a home, give me a call or send me an email. I’d be happy to help!
