    A picture is worth a thousand words. It’s funny, but so true. Sellers have to remember the importance of curb appeal. Clean up the yard, make it look inviting, put up or turn on lights, make your home as attractive as possible.

    Funny, but true and sad at the same time. But one way to look at it is that whenever there is a downturn new opportunities turn up. You have to keep your eyes open and be aware, but they are there.

    This is pretty funny, and definitely a sign of the times. The good news is that you can save a lot of money from having to buy hundreds of feet of lights for the house and just buy the economy pack, just enough to decorate your real estate sign! I think a stocking hanging from the sign would be a nice touch, and you could put the real estate flyers in there for people to take. There’s an idea for you Chris!

    This shows how time flies and how marketing can really evolve. We feel sad about this but we must accept that this is how it really works.

    Sounds like we’re all attempting to see things from a positive perspective but wow it is not easy right now.

    How are sales during the holiday season in general? I just got my real estate licence this year and am just getting started with selling. Wondering if it slows down, speeds up or stays the same?

    Overall it slows down a bit but Realtors that answer their phones and keep working through the Holiday season can do better this time of year than during the rest of the year. We get to pick up the slack that the “vacationing” Realtors leave behind.

    In Idaho we have a seasonal market often slowing 25-40%. Winter is often my busiest time though as folks still want to buy and sell homes and many agents are hibernating;)

    Even Seattle homes where my business is based, we see the same.

    What a funny picture. I will keep my eyes open next year for this.

Got something to say?
