Are you thinking about selling but want to wait until after the holiday season?  

Here are some great reasons not to wait!

*There is less competition for buyers!

*People out looking in the freezing cold and snow tend to be serious about a home purchase.

*Because there is less competition you may get more money!  Less to choose from = less negotiating.

*Your home is usually decorated and comforting with holiday smells…just make sure to stage it correctly and tastefully!

*You can always restrict showings if it interferes with holiday parties or celebrations.

*Buyers have more time to look during vacation time from schools and jobs or while visiting friends and family.

*You can delay closing until after the holidays pass!

*When you sell your own home during the winter you are in a stronger position to purchase a new one when all those spring for sale signs pop up.  You will have the maximum negotiating advantages as your home will already be sold!

So what are you waiting for?  Call me and I will take care of everything for you 🙂

Additional Help for Sandy Victims


This article from the NY Times explains how a 203K loan (typically used for homes that do not meet current codes to be brought current when ownership is transferred) can be used to help repair a Sandy damaged home.  Structured to release payments to the new owner to make repairs by releasing construction payments under the banks supervision to take a run down home (possibly a foreclosure or flood damaged) and in the end the final mortgage amount under the 203K process is for the appraised value of the rebuilt home.

It is slightly complicated and each circumstance is different.  Having a trusted mortgage broker who has successfully completed transactions with this process is key.  Feel free to contact me for some references!
