If you're thinking of selling your home, there are some powerful reasons why...
You may get a much HIGHER PRICE in the holiday season!
Many agents are now telling would-be property sellers that "nothing will happen before well into next year". On that basis, they argue, you should forget about putting your home for sale before February at the earliest. What nonsense.
The reason some agents tell you that 'Summer time is a quiet time' is because those agents want it to be quiet. The market is not shutting down. The agents are shutting down! They're closing up and taking a few weeks' holiday. So, of course it's going to be quiet - for them!!
But not for us! At Pennisi Real Estate, we're planning to be very busy over Christmas and New Year. In fact, we are expecting a record number of sales at some record HIGH prices.
From Monday December 1, 2014 until Saturday January 31, 2015 - that's 62 days! - our office will be closed just four days: Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year's Day and Australia Day.
Now, granted, there may not be as many buyers around in the holiday period but those that are looking are usually very serious and very keen buyers. Often, the holiday period is either the perfect time for them to look for a property or it's the only time for them to look.
And do you know what frustrates these buyers more than anything else? Trying to find an agent that's open!
Many 'holiday buyers' are more concerned with finding a home than finding a bargain. Some need to get their children settled; others hope to find a solid investment. And, with less agents open and fewer properties, this means one thing: the law of supply and demand kicks in!
Higher prices are therefore often paid for the fewer properties that are available. How much higher? Well, often a lot higher than once February come around and more properties start to 'flood' on to the market. More homes often means lower prices. Less homes, higher prices!
