Do I buy? Sell? Do Realtors work at all during the season?
There is a misconception out there that the real estate market shuts down between Thanksgiving and the New Year. That agents decide to “take the rest of the year off”, and not bother to market for new business, or even tend to their current clients.
While this may be true for some agents, it most certainly isn’t true for Team Avalos. We are working hard through the season to insure our clients needs are met, and still meeting with, and working with, both home buyers and sellers.
Which begs the question: Is this a good time to do some real estate business? Are sellers showing their homes this time of year? The answer is a resounding YES! Right now, buyers have such great opportunities to get into the home they want based on less competition from other buyers who may decide to wait until “after the holidays.” Also, interest rates have taken another down turn, giving you incredible purchasing power to get into the home of your dreams.
So what about selling my home? Why shouldn’t I just wait until the new year to list my home?
Good question. We understand the holidays may be a busy time of year, but again, there are some definite advantages working for sellers who decide to list over the holidays. Buyers looking for homes this time of year tend to be pretty serious about making a purchase, so the “Lookie-loo” factor is diminished quite a bit. Plus, with interest rates dipping back into the 3 percent range, buyers definitely want to take advantage of this news and lock in their rates.
Most importantly, don’t overlook the opportunities RIGHT NOW to achieve all of your real estate goals!
We are here to serve your needs during the holidays. Whether you’re buying or selling, our experience and knowledge of the Santa Clarita and San Fernando Valley real estate markets will definitely help you in achieving your real estate goals.
