The 3 most significant factors when buying and selling real estate.

Location.
Condition.
Price.

And a bonus factor some might overlook is...Timing.

We are heading into the 2017 holiday season. Halloween will be gone in a blink. Christmasland is already getting retail shelf space. Let’s not overlook Thanksgiving! Also, let’s say you are a Seller and your house is currently listed with a REALTOR®...what happens when a showing request comes in for the same day & time you are expecting a house full of holiday guests?
 
 What happens when a snow storm is headed our way and you’ve got 3 confirmed showings for tonight?

Should you take your house off the market until spring?

In the Topeka real estate market, the buyer pool narrows during the holiday season but the buyers shopping are generally motivated. Who really WANTS to shop for houses during a snow storm? Furthermore, when sellers choose to remove their houses from the market to avoid the stress of staying “show ready” during the holidays, they leave potential buyers with slim pickings.
 
Even with limited options, serious buyers buy whichever property best fits their needs.

Sellers:
How do you position your house to outshine the listing competition during the holiday season? How is this different than other times of the year?
How much holiday decorating is appropriate?
What if buyers track snow and grossness onto the carpets?!
How do you avoid that from the start?
It’s too cold outside, what happens if I decline this showing request?
 
Buyers:
What things are more difficult to navigate during fall/wintertime?
How might “bank holidays” impact your contract and closing deadlines?
Wanna be in your new home by Thanksgiving? It’s tight but possible.
Before December 25th? We’ve got just enough time. ????

These questions have varied answers and many solutions. A REALTOR® can help you determine which solutions get you to your goal quickly and mostly stress free.

Wanna know what recent sales data says homes in your area might be worth? What are home values in your desired neighborhood? Plan ahead. Request a CMA today. Imagine yourself in the home of your dreams within 3 to 12 months. Holiday miracles happen all year long.
