Winter is typically a slow season for real estate transactions. With the holidays, family gatherings, and cold weather, the housing market usually plunges into hibernation, with sellers and buyers putting their real estate plans on hold until spring. However, this year's winter real estate market is shaping up to be different from what we're used to. The coronavirus pandemic saw the housing market grind to a near halt. But with the economy recovering, the 2020 holiday season could be an excellent time to sell your home. Here are some of the reasons why our real estate agents believe a holiday home sale could be more likely this year.
