My house has been on the market since summer. I’m thinking about pulling it off the market and starting over fresh with a new listing in the new year. Should I do that or should I keep it for sale during the holidays?
Cindy Goldrick, Wilson & Goldrick Realtors: That’s a typical question we get this time of year. Usually it is a good idea to take your house off the market and give it a “rest” and come back on the market fresh after the holidays, either late January or as late as March.
This past 30 days, though, we have seen a lot of activity in the market. Several of the new listings have sold in less than 10 days with a lot of showings and a strong level of interest. We are seeing a lot of out-of-town buyers looking and making decisions to buy now so they can make a move during the holidays. Our interest rates are historically low, so it’s encouraging many buyers to go ahead and make a purchase.
