7 Reasons to List your House This Holiday Season

7 Reasons to List Your House This Holiday Season





Around this time each year, many homeowners decide to wait until after the holidays to list their houses. Similarly, others who already have their homes on the market remove their listings until the spring. Let’s unpack the top reasons why listing your house now or keeping it on the market this winter may be the best choice you can make.

How to NOT sell your House!

5) Leave dirty dishes in the sink and counter tops.  I was in a hurry!
6) No need to fix that hole in the wall where your little ones threw that ball.  After all they only broke the ceiling fan and left a 4 inch hole.  Anyone with kids will understand.
7) No need to fix that leak under the kitchen sink.  As long ...
