Holiday slow down?
'Tis the season and yes, the real estate market is slower. Sellers typically would prefer to have their home on the market after the new year, and not worry about their home being in "showing condition" through the holidays. Buyers have their focus elsewhere.
Having said that, this may be a good opportunity for both buyers and sellers. For buyers, fewer people competing for homes. For sellers, fewer listings competing for the buyer's attention.
We wish you all the best this holiday season!
