Wrap Up:

Sellers: This month we saw the all-to-familiar cooling down of the average temperatures, and along with that comes the familiar cooling of the real estate market. While this time of year might be more difficult for the seller, fear not! There are still plenty of buyers out there looking for a new home for the upcoming New Year. Yet, as the market begins to slow in anticipation of the holiday season, now is an opportune time to reevaluate your selling strategy. 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: This month saw a continued decrease in new listings, as predicted with the impending arrival of winter. However, while the temperatures might be dropping, the market isn’t frozen! The late fall is a perfect time to make an offer on the property of your dreams, when sellers are eager to close before the winter.
