Thoughts on Selling During the Holidays from Agent Amy Roth in Hunterdon County, NJ

20171215_191656_1513446794484Many sellers feel they should wait to list their home or have their agent temporarily remove it from the market. However, even during the holiday season people continue to shop for homes. Consider the following:

 

 

 

  • During the season you and your home are both festive and ready for guests. What says welcome more than sparkle and cookies?
  • There are many special mortgage products that make buying a better choice than renting. Those buyers are out there.
  • A place to call home represents a new beginning for buyers and sellers. When the glasses clink and the clock chimes, people make decisions about where they want to be next year.
  • The tax benefits can be part of the reason someone may be buying or selling at the end of the year. A tax professional can help answer questions related to both.
  • Serious buyers are out there and are not at the malls. They have extra time off from work and are putting it to good use. Fewer people are “just looking” and are actually in-market!

 

Waiting for the “spring market” means you have more competition. A professional agent can help guide you through all the seasons of selling.

New Jersey FALL DRIVE!

IMG_9765I’m a girl who loves getting lost. Road trips and Sunday drives are a favorite pastime. They help you discover your own backyard. Traveling expands your horizon but rambling in your own state can be just as fun.

Fall is the perfect time to enjoy apple picking and hiking. Melick’s Farm is just one of my favorites in Hunterdon. More than apples they also sell their adult hard cider. My current favorite is the Jersey Ginger. If you want to hike Hacklebarney State Park is just enough without feeling like you will get lost. You will be amazed at the beauty of this park. Just outside the park entrance you will find Hacklebarney Farm with tasty cider doughnuts and more.

Drive south down RT29 or RT 32 on the Delaware River and you will arrive in New Hope/Lambertville. There are many shops and restaurants to explore. My favorite for lunch with a river view is The Landing.

Get out and drive!
