If you are one of the many homeowners who is debating taking your home off the market for the next few weeks, don’t! You will miss the great opportunity you have right now!

Home prices are appreciating in this seller’s market. Making your home available over the next few weeks will give you the most exposure to buyers who will be competing against each other to buy it. Plus when everyone else takes their home off the market that means less competition for your home. Not to mention, buyers that are looking during the holidays are serious!
