What is in store for 2010?

Wow, the new year is almost here! With the sounds of jungle bells in the air and merry Christmas's all around, who has time to think about house shopping? I used to think the same thing, yet over the years I have made offers on 2 houses during the month of December!  As a seller we sometimes feel the time to list is in the spring or late winter, yet that thinking is common among many sellers so what happens? A lack of houses on the market where buyers that need to move are still shopping right up to Christmas! And as a seller you want to have the best possible exposure and hopefully not miss out on that 1 buyer that is out there,(hopefully that buyer wasnt the one shopping for a home at Christmas). So I guess you have to ask yourself, how much time do I have to sell? Do I want to sell through the holidays or wait until january? It is inconvienient to sell a home, but the sooner you get it on the market, the sooner you can move on to your next "home".
