Most agents and people will report that the real estate market is slow during the holidays. This is generally true, but what I do find is that people who are looking are serious. This is because people spending their limited time, during Christmas, to shop for homes are typically not just browsing. So what is a good game plan if you are looking for a Charlottesville home during the holidays?
Start your search online
Search for your Charlottesville Home with the proper parameter. Be sure to trying searching by school or area, just to focus on the area you want, vs what is just available.
Save your Favorites
Be sure to save your favorite Charlottesville Homes so that your Solutions Agent will be able to assist you, by setting appointments. Only save homes that you really want to see.
During the holidays, it is more difficult for people to leave their homes so that you can view them. Spend time really looking at the photos online and be sure to select the home that really fit your needs, not just all that fit your needs. Be understanding that seller are people too and will have family visiting and getting an appointment may be difficult.
Also give your Solutions agent plenty of advance notice of your travel plans and days that work for you to see homes. We are here to help, give us a call or drop us an email and we will be happy to assist you.
