Wrap Up:

Sellers: Tis the season for the familiar holiday traditions to ensue, and (unfortunately) the Real Estate Market to drop like snowflakes in a blizzard. This is an expected slow down in the system, and as the season continues the buyers will come back out of their hibernation and start the search process once again. However, there is always a crowd that trudges on in hopes of finding the perfect home for the New Year, so now is still a good time to sell! Talk to your agent today for your home re-evaluation, as a small adjustment in price or selling strategy can go a long way.

Buyers: If you are one of the few buyers continuing the search during the holiday season, you may have the upper hand! The competition is slimmer this time of year, so that may put you at the advantage in finding your dream home. Further, sellers may be more willing to negotiate in order to unload their property before the depths of winter.

If you’re just beginning the home buying purchase, now is the time to find an agent who understands your needs! Reach out to the Salt Fowler Team now to get on our client list and hear about new homes as soon as they come on the market!
