 The Market Is Not Scary




Halloween In Baltimore


It is the end of October and I keep getting asked if we should wait until Spring to list.

My answer has always been:

The best time to list a home is when you and your house are both ready !


Received a call from a couple who are moving to Florida in a few weeks.

They were advised to rent because this is  not a good season to sell.


It may not sell because it is the end of the year.

It definitely will NOT sell if it is not on the market!



Stay tuned to see if they  decide to list or rent.

I am telling sellers if they are ready there will also be ready buyers. Those not on the market definitely don't sell.

With low interest rates the market is now year round. Even if there are fewer buyers in November there are fewer sellers also and it works out.

You're right. For one thing, less inventory helps sellers.

I can't imagine listing with anyone but you in your market.  Not scary at all, just smart.

We always fail when we don't try. If a house isn't put on the market, it won't sell. If it is put on the market, it might!

Buyers are out in every type of weather, and every season, looking for "the one." The house might just be that one!

Kat Palmiotti There is no RIGHT time to sell other than... when you, the house and the buyer are ready!

Agreed it's not scary and when it's time to sell it's time to sell.
