I received this inquiry this morning. What the gentleman was referring to was not "Should he sell" but rather "Should he sell now" as in December. This is a question that surfaces every year just as the Christmas lights are going on the trees!
My response has changed over the years. I have come to believe that December is not the best time to place your house for sale. I am referring to making it a new listing. If it is already in the market, keep it there.
For a new listing I recommend the seller use December to get the house ready for selling. Take care of the little problems (all homes have something that could be tweaked). Enjoy the holidays.
If you are considering selling your Viera or Rockledge, Florida home in January, please give me a call. It is not too early to start the process - and we can hold off putting the sign out front until after New Years!
