In my neck of the woods, we have what is known as (real) winter. As in WINTER WEATHER!
Home sales do slow down, but Winter buyers are not usually lookie-loo's.
I noticed several homes in Spokane " coming off the market for the winter". I guess to each his own, but it only takes one solid buyer to sell you house!
I have never shown homes to anyone in the dead of winter who didn't buy!
As a Realtor, I recommend giving it serious thought before pulling your home off the market during winter.
Ultimatley, it's up to the seller and their motivation. The past two winters in Spokane have been grueling.
But with the new incentive for the tax credit for both first time home buyers (extended) and now for sellers who have been in their home 5 of the last eight years, it should be a VERY productive winter for all of us!
