Hi Everyone,
Listings and Buyers are always slow over the holidays – Right?? Well here are the new listings over the past 30 days:

Garden City          12
Floral Park            21
Malverne                 6
W. Hempstead      12
Franklin Square    11

As I said last in my last newsletter, most people think they must sell in the Spring and most sellers DO list their homes in the Spring. Result – a lot of competition among sellers for the same number of buyers. Tough to get a premium price with that scenario.
The people who are listing now have much less competition, their houses look great with the christmas lights and decorations, and the buyers have to bid up the prices since there are fewer houses to choose from. I have even seen a couple of bidding wars on homes in the past 2 weeks.
Again, the question of Why would people be buying during the holidays?? Answer – Job Transfers, buyers may not celebrate these holidays and thus have a lot of free time, buyers need more room ie another baby on the way, etc . There are hundreds of reasons buyers come out looking throughout the year. We just do not think of these reasons since we are conditioned to think “only sell during the Spring”. Actually, there are NO bad times to list your home. Price will depend on Location, Amenities in the home, Character of the home and Condition of the home.
As always, if you would like to talk, just give me a call or email. I’m always here.

I wish you and your family the happiest of holidays. Stay Safe!
