I just had the conversation with some past clients that want to sell but now is not the time.   They are a traditional sale.   The want to move but have several family events coming up like graduations, weddings and a 60th anniversary that they want to get through first so the will be listing at the end of the year.

It would be difficult to sell your home with no where to go Elizabeth.

Morning Elizabeth as you said timing is everything.  This is a great time to place your property on the market but what will drive the market comes after the results of the election.

Hi Jim: You probably experience the same reaction as I get when you tell a seller that maybe he or she should wait. They are astonished, right?

Hi Tom: One of the first questions out of my mouth when I meet with a seller, particularly with a short sale seller, is where will he or she move? How can you sell if you don't know where you will move?

Hi James: Some of us can't wait for the election before selling.

Elizabeth -  Yes they were.   They were very surprised when I told them that they would probably get an offer (more likely multiple offers) in the first week we put the house on the market.   With all the things that they have planned in the next couple of months, and most at their house, there was no way we could list it now.
