Does your Christmas shopping list include a new house this year?⠀ ⠀ Here are some tips when house hunting during the holiday season!⠀ ⠀ 1: Remember that sellers who are showing their home over the holidays may also need to move soon and may, therefore, be more motivated to negotiate on price. ⠀ ⠀ 2: Be patient with homeowners willing to show their homes and make the most of your showing time. Try your best to be on time for your showing appointment and be free of distractions. Leave the kids with a sitter, and if you are buying with a spouse or partner, schedule showings when you both can attend together, so as not to waste anyone’s time.⠀ ⠀ 3: Look past holiday decor. Don’t be distracted by garland, lights, and trees. Make sure you take time to look past decorations to see every corner and fixture in the home. ⠀ ⠀ 4: Do your homework before you go looking. Scrutinize pictures or video tours. I can help you research properties ahead of time to make sure we are not wasting time looking at homes that will not make work for you – so that you can spend more time with family during the holidays and less looking at properties.⠀ ⠀ Ready to get started searching?
