The holiday season from November through January is often considered the worst time to put a home on the market. While the thought of selling your home during the winter months may dampen your holiday spirit, the season does have its advantages: holiday buyers tend to be more serious and competition is less fierce with fewer homes being actively marketed. First, decide if you really need to sell. Once you've committed to the challenge, don your gay apparel and follow these tips:

Team, as we head into the winter months and shorter days we wanted to send out a reminder to always be safe while out showing homes, meeting new clients, and performing your daily routines as real estate professionals. Please make sure you are up-to-date on warnings of thefts, strange occurrences and safety notices in your area by reading through the current safety alerts published on the “Alerts” tab on your local MLS home page.  Please put safety first and read these precautions to help make future showings as safe as possible:

  2. Bring a flashlight to showings. It can be used to spotlight areas or as a weapon if needed.
  3. Use your cell phone for safety. Have emergency numbers

There are several factors to consider when contemplating which investment strategy is best. Here are a few things to take into account:

Your Personality
