November usually signals the beginning of the "slow season" for real estate. And of course the numbers bear that out. However, if it's YOUR house that needs to be sold right now, you don't want to hear about the "slow season" or any other excuse for your house not selling.
There are always buyers out there. You just need to offer more to get their attention. That's where staging can help tremendously. My staging offers Product Improvement that every property needs. Also, when it's November and close to the holidays, I usually add a few touches to allow buyers to make that emotional connection to the house being theirs and how great a holiday would be at that property. Staging should not include anything religious or culturally unique however. Staging should always be seasonal. Just like pictures for the MLS. If I am providing pictures for an agent, I update with the season. However, I haven't had to do that as we usually sell before the season changes.
