Don't tell me you can't sell near Christmas!

By
Real Estate Agent with Gold Key Real Estate

I was uninspired.....  I had 4 listings and very little activity.  I knew I priced the homes correctly but Thanksgiving had come and gone..... I still had 4 listing..... The first listing went on December 15.... We close today.... The next one went December 17.... We close next week.... Then the next one went on December 23.... I showed a home on Christmas eve... We close in a week.... Last but not least my last listing went on January 7.

I am now have no active listings and $991 pending (at least until this afternoon). 

I scratch my head and wonder why now?   Maybe it was just that 2 out of 3 kids were home for the winter break (as was my brother in law).  Could be.... We all know that the best way to get busy is to go away....

Then I started looking at the market.   There was nothing out there.  There is hardly anything to show.   So the few homes that are on the market and nice will do very well.  It isn't a fun time to look at houses so those who are looking are serious.  

I might not believe in Santa Claus but I do believe you can sell homes at Christmas!

That was a nice Christmas gift. I got a new listing as a gift on Christmas eve. Now if I could get my listings sold and some buyers to take action I'd be able to cash in on my opportunities.

Debbie - Congrats on getting all your listings sold. I also had a listing through the holidays, and received an offer January 1st. What a great way to start the new year. We are scheduled to close Jan. 30.
