What to Consider When Listing Your House during the Holiday Season

This year has been one for the record books, and while every person and every industry has been impacted by the pandemic (and everything else 2020 has thrown our way!), one area that has continued to fare well throughout it all has been the real estate market. As the saying goes, “Home is where the heart is,” and this year home is quite literally where it all is. For those of you considering listing your home during the holiday season, there’s strong reason to believe demand will continue to remain high well throughout what is sometimes considered a “low” season for real estate – a time when there is historically less inventory and a reduced demand to go with it.
