It’s decision time for those homeowners that are still on the fence about whether to put their home on the market this year, or to wait until the spring market of 2015. With only about 2.5 weeks until the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, there’s still theoretically time to list a home and get it into contract before we slip into December. The recent unseasonably warm weather certainly doesn’t make it seem as if we’re already in the second week of November. And when you combine that with sales results like those posted below, and the fact that there are only 10 single-family homes for sale in the entire city, it makes that decision even more challenging.
The good news for home sellers is that the market is still incredibly strong, and buyers will continue to be in the hunt throughout the holiday season. That means if the home is prepared well and priced correctly, it will definitely sell – regardless of whether it’s the second week of November, or the week before Christmas.
Here are the details from last week:
