DECEMBER UPDATE - YOU CAN SELL DURING THE HOLIDAYS
It seems to be a long tradition that homes should not be listed in the run up to Christmas but recently this is becoming increasingly untrue. As many people think this way your listing now will have little competition. It may well look at its best with tasteful Holiday decorations and so will your street. The buyers out there are often highly motivated with the Holiday spirit and securing a loan can be a lot faster with less people applying. There maybe tax reasons why someone needs to buy and quickly. Selling with us can save you a fortune and more than pay for all those gifts, maybe all your closing costs and the biggest turkey you can find. Happy Holidays to you all – Ron and Jo 760-855-5541.
