Selling houses, timing

Timing is everything when it comes to selling your real estate investment. I had a conversation with someone looking to sell her property & I was surprised that she thought that the fall is a down time in being successful in selling homes. My experience over the 25 years I have been selling is that heading into Christmas is the BEST time to market property. Inventory is down soooooo less competition AND the buyers are usually targeting moving in for Christmas so a quick close. This conversation highlighted, for me the importance of hiring a agent that will help the seller make good decisions that are based on facts rather than speculative misinformation.
