What’s New on the Market?

In our November 17th post, “Real Estate’s In Hibernation Until March, Right?”, we talked about the fact that new listings come on the market every month, even in the winter. In fact, people who are selling (or buying) homes this time of year are often very motivated and very savvy about current market conditions.

It’s true that December is a month when most people are getting ready for the holidays, doing last minute shopping, mailing cards and gifts to friends and relatives, etc. It’s also true that most properties don’t look as good as they’ll look in the spring and summer when all of the flowers and trees will be blooming and the lawn is a nice fresh green color again.

If you walk your dogs in your neighborhood as we do, you also know that in the winter you notice a lot more about the houses that you pass. Many of the trees and bushes are bare and no longer hide portions of the home or of the property, so a home’s “curb appeal” may be far different than it will be when the weather turns warmer. If you’re considering buying a home, this can be a good thing, because you really notice the house itself a lot more.

So this can be a great time of the year to either buy or sell a home. To prove the point, here is a list of single family homes (no condominiums) that have been newly listed in the past month:
