Naughty or Nice List? Home Selling during the Holidays

A well staged, uncluttered property in a good location at a fair price will sell any time of the year.  How long will it take?  Maybe a little longer than June and July when families are shopping for schools.

Thoughts to Ponder…during the Holiday Home Buying Season:

  • Buyers that are out now are more serious…most families have a busy schedule
  • Buyers may wait until families are together on vacation to start looking
  • There are fewer homes for sale…..less competition
  • Some home show better in the winter
  • Today’s buyers never stop looking online
  • Many people relocate for that new job at the beginning of the year

I have  been working for a buyer soon to be a BUCKEYE!  We have been “shopping together” online.  I personally preview possibilities and then we put the property on the Nice List or the  Naughty List.  When her family comes to Columbus Town in early December,  you know which list we will use.

If you decide to wait for after the Holidays…don’t wait too long!  Competition increases each day of the NEW YEAR.

Happy Thanksgiving to All?  Thankful for so many gifts in my life.

Could Have Been EVEN a BIGGER Change at the Yanok House this Christmas!

As most of our friends and family know, we ALWAYS have a real Christmas Tree in our house during the holidays.  George has promised the girls if they come home for Christmas, we will always have a real Christmas Tree.  We have called on friends for many years to get this monster in the house…high school friends, neighbors, and good friends, Bill Irwin, are on call for the delivery.  When the girls were still home, they would help select the tree.  The bigger the better!  Watching George get in the holiday spirit??? while he struggled with the tree, was always  their favorite part of the process.

Because of allergies and sniffles, the day of going to MR. TREE and bringing home our tree is over.

This year George and I traveled to COSTCO to purchase, reluctantly a beautiful artificial tree with LIGHTS already on the tree…they even turn to color for Eli and Evie.  Knowing we needed to get a large tree, we purchased the tallest tree they had.  The box didn’t even fit in our car as a complete stranger overheard us talking about living in Westerville and offered to follow us home in his truck.  What relief we felt!  The tree is pretty, lights already on, it will pay for itself in 2 years as Mr. Tree is getting very pricey, carpet will not have water stains, no watering the tree, the family should be well and the list went on. 

Time passes and we get a call from COSTCO.

The Box the Good Samaritan Helped us Bring Home!

The Second Box that we forgot?????

Thank you to COSTCO for calling…

We can only imagine the family’s reaction if we were missing half of our new tree on December 23?  WAY TOO MUCH Change for the Yanok family.

Speaking of Change…Looking for a new home in 2018?  Get your home on the market now that the holidays are coming.  Less Competition, Only Serious Buyers are Looking During this Busy Season, and Emotion plays a HUGE ROLE in home buying…set the stage with tasteful decorations, no clutter, and help buyers imagine their next Christmas in their new COZY, HOLIDAY HOME.  Let me know if you would like the link to 5 short videos that explain how to list your house with no cost improvements.
