Tuesday Morning Coffee- February 18, 2020

  Click to play this video. People always ask me, "When is the best time to buy or sell a home?" The truth is, it's now! Here's why. LOWER PRICES Often, homes are priced a little more aggressively in the winter months. You can save more or get into a house you might have been unable to afford in other months.  LESS COMPETITION Most people hold off until spring or summer before buying or selling, which means less competition and more opportunity for you. Buyers and sellers are eager; you'll have negotiating power. FASTER PROCESS The entire process will take less time in the winter months. It's often easier to close on your home faster in the winter months. WINTER VIEWING You'll get a real perspective of the home in the winter. You'll see possible negatives that you won't see in the perfect summer conditions. QUICK MOVE You'll move faster. Moving companies are usually slow in the winter months. It will be easier to get on a schedule and move quickly and possibly cheaper. If you're thinking about buying or selling, don't wait until the busy spring months. Start now! It will pay off. I'm ready to help you make your move. Reply to this email or give me a call to talk about your move.      `; document.head.insertAdjacentHTML("beforeend",style);
