The Tree

Small spaces don’t require large trees. There are so many cute ways to decorate and give your smaller home the Christmas spirit. I just loved this charming tree in a white basket. Very Scandinavian. Tres chic.

Christmas is upon us

I can’t help myself. I know we are just getting to Thanksgiving but I am already preparing for Christmas decorating. It is a big deal around my house.

I keep a book with ideas for decorating this year and for once I am going heavy on the red. It’s pretty rare you see so much red in my home but I just want to follow through with it this year and change thing up.

Do you plan ahead? What are your color schemes?

Why Waiting Until After the Holidays to Sell Isn’t a Smart Decision

Every year at this time, many homeowners decide to wait until after the holidays to put their homes on the market for the first time, while others who already have their homes on the market decide to take them off until after the holidays. Here are six great reasons not to wait:

  1. Relocation buyers are out there. Companies are not concerned with holiday time and if the buyers have kids, they want them to get into school after the holidays.
  1. Purchasers that are looking for a home during the holidays are serious buyers and are ready to buy.
  1. You can restrict the showings on your home to the times you want it shown. You will remain in control.
  1. Homes show better when decorated for the holidays.
  1. There is less competition for you as a seller right now. Let’s take a look at listing inventory as compared to the same time last year:

  1. The supply of listings increases substantially after the holidays. Also, in many parts of the country, new construction will continue to surge reaching new heights in 2017, which will lessen the demand for your house.

Bottom Line

Waiting until after the holidays to sell your home probably doesn’t make sense. We have a shortage of listings in Orlando – call me! Let’s sell your home.
