Sellers wonder if they should keep their properties on the market or take them off during this time of the year. Conventional wisdom says yes but with the internet, smartphones, tablets and our always on lifestyle that conventional wisdom isn't relevant anymore. The reality is that home buying season is now year around. Also the inventory and the competition is usually lighter. If you don't want to be bothered during the holidays, list in January. Traditionally inventory is very light and buyers with their New Years resolutions want to stop wasting money on rent and buy a home. Also some buyers are motivated to search for a home in January because of year-end tax planning. Whatever the buyers' motivation, for sellers it means one thing: Demand for homes can increase at a time when inventory is traditionally low...meaning you will have a more captive audience during the holidays...all the way through January.
