Timing is Everything

December 2, 2014

Timing is everything. It’s an expression we’ve all heard, used and often believe. With 


the New Year’s goals and resolutions just days away, planning is on top of mind. Now is 


when I frequently get asked: “when is the best time to buy?”....”when is the best time to 




Is there really a “best time”...or is it all just luck? A favorite quote from Oprah: “I 


believe luck is preparation meeting opportunity. If you hadn’t been prepared when the 


opportunity came along, you wouldn’t have been lucky.”


And so it is with buying or selling a home....be prepared. 



If buying:


Know your finances, work up a budget, verify credit scores, get pre-qualified for a loan, 


make a list of the must-haves for your new home and neighborhood. Rates are usually 


their lowest from now until mid-February and there are some good bargains to be found 


during the early winter months. Check out the Quick Pulse Report updated weekly on


our web site. You’ll find yourself in a lot less competition with other buyers for the next


couple of months. Now could indeed be the right time to buy.



If selling:


Get a current market evaluation of your home, find out what improvements would yield 


more money, prepare a plan for where you’re moving to, start to de-clutter and donate. 


There might be fewer buyers right now, but those looking are serious (big time for 


relocation buyers) and there’s also less competition. The real estate spring market in 


the TC starts the second week of January. The number of buyers start to increase, but 


so do the number of listings! Read the Featured Testimonial from our current


newsletter to understand the power of preparedness and timing.


Now could indeed be the right time to sell.



Feeling overwhelmed or just too busy to get it all started? Call me...a simple hour or 


two of your time and I can help you prepare for anything necessary to make a move. 


Experience has taught me a lot and, if moving is in your future, I’d love to help make it 


happen for you!
