menlo park real estate specialist: Why It Is A Great Idea To List Your Menlo park Home on Dec 26 - 11/29/13 07:16 AM
I know what you are thinking, I am going to wait till after the first of the year or the spring to sell my Menlo Park home. It would be stupid to list a home during the holidays, no one does that. Or no one is looking for a home during the holidays.

Here are the reasons I think selling  a Menlo Park home on Dec 26th this year is a great idea.
1. The inventory has … (0 comments)
