Palm Beach Real Estate AgentI want to let you in on a little secret. We get asked all the time whether December or January is a better time to list your home for sale. Most people would guess that January would be a better time, due to the rush of the holiday season being over and the new year beginning, but most people would be wrong. We would like to show you an insider secret that most real estate agents don't know and that is: December is the perfect time to sell. 

Over the past 4 years, more homes have closed in the month of December than January. Why? For a few reasons. One being that we have a lot of people that want to benefit from property tax breaks by buying before the end of the year. We also have a lot of cash buyers visiting the area.

Another thing to consider is real estate is all about supply and demand. Did you know that last January, inventory rose 68% from the previous December? In December, we have nearly the same amount of buyers, but far less choices for them, which drives the prices of good homes up. 

If you want to sell your home for top dollar, you need to get in touch with us soon. We might be able to have you close by the end of the year or right after the new year. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to give us a call or send us a quick email.
