The holidays are quickly approaching with Halloween now past us. Naturally, homeowners are gearing up to leave town or for friends and family to come visit Santa Barbarain the coming months. So what can we expect in the coming week and month for real estate? Well, historically, we can expect to start to see a decrease in new listings and fewer properties closing or pending.
I have said in the past that the holidays can sometimes be the busiest time of year for real estate, and this year I will predict once again that this is true. Keep a watchful eye on the market over these next few months. While you might not see a lot of activity, the true indicator is what happens with closings in January and February. If properties are closing in those months, it is most certainly because during late November and December, offers started getting negotiated and were set to close after the holidays. These next few months can be some of the best times to find year-end deals to close in the new year.
So stoke the fire, get nice and cozy and watch the coming months… oh, and for a really good fire, I suggest using old Sentinels for kindling… They burn well and the editors would want it that way!
Take a look at a few of these new fire starters for this week.
