Pat Starnes Snippets

Who Says December Is a Slow Month in Real Estate?

Someone commented the other day that "everyone knows" houses don't sell during the holidays. That may be true is certain parts of the country, but it isn't true in Brandon and Madison, MS!

Sure, the market may slow down, but people DO buy houses during the holidays. And homes that are properly positioned in the marketplace, are clean and appropriately staged will garner the most attention. 

It's been business as usual for me the last couple of weeks; a new listing, one offer accepted, two home inspections scheduled, and an offer received this afternoon (December 19).

If your home didn't sell during the busy summer months, you may need to reposition yourself in the market. If I can offer assistance, I can be reached at the number below.
