5 Reasons to Buy, 5 Reasons to Sell During the Holidays
Thinking of buying or selling soon? There are several reasons you should consider doing so now, during the holiday season:
-Reason to sell: Homes look gorgeous during the holidays. They’re decorated beautifully, and it’s a great time to show yours in its best light. Plus, buyers are emotional during this time.
-Reason to buy: You have a lot more time to find the right home and get settled in because of the extra time you get off work. If you have children, holiday breaks are an opportune time to switch schools.
-Reason to sell: You’ll have to go through fewer showings, but you’ll deal with more serious buyers.
-Reason to buy: There are tax benefits you can take advantage of by buying before the year is over, and new construction companies offer plenty of incentives for new homes so that they get they sold before the year is over.
-Reason to sell: You can sell now and delay your closing or make occupancy arrangements so that you don’t have to move until after the new year.
Interest rates are very low, which means your affordability is high.
-Reason to buy: We can help relocation companies relocate employees.
-Reason to sell: You’ll be able to restrict your showings so you don’t interrupt any family time.
-Reason to buy: Interest rates are very low, which means your affordability is high.
As an added bonus for both buyers and sellers, moving companies offer price discounts during the holiday season.

How You Can Capitalize on the Market by Becoming an Investor
Lately, everyone in real estate has been talking about investing. Everyone has been jumping into the pool, and you’re probably wondering what’s happening to cause all this activity.
Our team even did an investor workshop last month. The big property we shared went under contract with multiple offers—it had barely even hit the market! Luckily, one of our clients was able to grab it. In fact, I think that the lease is already in the works for the property to be rented out.
To my point, when you’re scrolling down my newsletter, you should really pay attention to the “coming soon” properties—they rarely last long enough to even hit the market, and they’re going under contract very quickly.
So what’s going on? Why is everybody suddenly so into investing?
Well, there are 10 million more millennials in the populace than there are baby boomers. That’s a ton! Millennials are those who are born between 1982 and 2000—66% of them are under the age of 30, and 22% are under the age of 25.
Here’s why that makes a difference:
In 1955, a study was done on who is most likely to buy homes, and the results are still true today: those who are getting married and are planning to start a family. However, in 1955, most women who were getting married were around the age of 20, and the husbands were 23 on average. Today, the average woman gets married around the age of 27, and the average man is 30. That’s a seven-year delay in the time that people decide to buy a home.
Investors are jumping to the pool because they know that the No. 1 way for millennials to increase their family wealth is through buying property.
In the current market, the average home-buying age is 32 years old. So what does that tell you? Well, all of the millennials in the market are about to flood into the market, and that’s why all the investors out there are jumping to the pool—they know that the No. 1 way for millennials to increase their family wealth is through buying property.
