Why now is a GREAT time to sell

The election, more COVID restrictions, Thanksgiving less than two weeks ago, Hanukkah starts on December 10 and Christmas is two weeks later.

All these are reasons not to sell right now but wait for the New Year – boy, aren’t we all waiting for and looking forward to the end of 2020!

But I would like to suggest that, in fact, this is a great time to sell. Inventory is remarkably low – read Does nobody want to leave Marblehead?

And if you have been thinking of selling, you have probably done most of the work in preparing the house for sale.

So let me suggest a timetable.

Complete any remaining work between now and Thanksgiving – and Team Harborside has a team – of course – of people who can help you to complete any work needed and can advise you what needs still to be done.

Then list right after Thanksgiving and – if the house is priced appropriately – you can have a reasonable expectation of an offer within a week or so. The buyer will then have 10 days to have an inspection.

All this means that the process may be completed by the middle of December.

If that sounds like an attractive plan, please contact me to arrange a meeting with Team Harborside.
