No seller likes people tromping through their home and trying to keep it up during the sales period. This gets even worse during the holidays.
I have clients whose home shown right was listed last Friday. They worked hard for quite a while to get it into showing shape. When we listed, they told me that they were having weekend company, but they would work around any buyers that wanted to see the home.
Being the start of the holidays I was unsure about activity, but this home was priced in a very advantageous price point.
Long story short, after 4 showings Saturday resulting in 2 above list price offers, we are under contract. Yes, we are in the holidays, but homes priced in this price point any time of the year are sure to generate lots of attention.
If you are not sure if you should list your home now, talk to your favorite professional Real estate agent. They can help you decide the very best time to list your home.
