December Monthly Market Update

December Monthly Market Update

The holidays are here.  But that doesn’t mean the real estate market has slowed down. We still have low inventory.  Despite what most people believe, The housing market doesn’t come to a standstill during the holidays.  Buyers shopping for homes during this time are more motivated.  When a home is priced in line with the market it is getting a good number of showings.  So if you thinking about putting your home on the market, now is a still a good time.
So the question remains do you decorate while your home is on the market?
Decorating your house will allow you and your family to celebrate the season while also offering any potential buyers a festive experience, and helping them to envision how the home will look dressed up for any occasion.  Many experts feel “Houses show better when decorated for the holidays.”
When decorating remember to:

  • Stick to neutral colors and decorations that complement your current décor
  • Keep it simple – decorations could give your home a cluttered appearance, and pose as safety or tripping hazards
  • Avoid decorations that block or hide important features of your home
