Everyone Wants to Be Home for the Holidays
There is something magical about this time of year. The approach of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Eve put a palpable electricity in the air. You feel it at the grocery store, the mall and even in the real estate market.
Most people don’t believe it, but November and December are great times to sell your Braemar home. There are families that are always relocating to our area. And even some native Northern Virginians just get the bug to be HOME for the holidays.
Purchasing a home this time of year is a great event. The big problem is that sellers tend to hold off for the spring market. This means fewer homes to choose from, which actually puts the advantage of negotiations in the sellers’ hands.
If you have been thinking of putting your Braemar home on the market, I can assure you there are buyers out there just waiting to snatch it up before the end of the year. Call me for a free market analysis of your Braemar home’s value and I’ll tell you all about the historical price bump we see this time of year. Remember, no one knows Braemar better!
