I usually make 50% of my annual in the last quarter. I attempt to close up shop last week of the year, for downtime and to do EOY stuff--but the fates do not always cooperate with that plan.
So 4 day hangover after NYD. Whatever! 😈

Happy Holidays & Merry Christmas to you too, Tim!

It varies from year-to-year - when our inventory is up, my holiday season is overwhelmingly busy during that time.

When the inventory is low, it's a very 'average' time, which it has been for the last 3 years.

Our inventory in Charlotte is still quite low so, I have been prospecting like a maniac to have an above average holiday season this year!! So far, so good!

For home improvement, it slows down for sure.  Big rush up till Thanksgiving.  Then, the monday after a bunch of calls for about 1.5 weeks, then next to nothing.  When it comes to flooring, very little is done if someone already lives in the home, especially as it relates to sanding and refinishing.  People often need to wait until the Christmas tree is gone.

 

That aside, Christmas week is a very busy week for the crews...one of the busiest of the year.  Lots of sanding jobs for those going away.  Those spots fill up quickly.

I can be all cute and fluffy and say that business is great!

Yet, not just for me, CA sales dropped significantly in last two months. I'm doing my best and always ready to list a house or show a property. So, I just keep ''swimming'':) There are so many opportunities to touch up the existing clients and add new potential customers to my database. It is always busy.

Tim,

Historically the less than serious buyers and sellers will go off the market for the holidays, especially once the deadline to be in by Christmas passes.  January sees a different type of buyer and seller out here and then the regulars return in March.

Real estate sells year round because life does not stop for anyone. Transfers, estate sales, divorces and moving up or down as your housing needs change. Folks gather around the computer monitor to warm their hearts, dream about buying in a new area over the holiday when they decide let's make a change or an investment. Videos are the best way to show your area, your properties. Round the clock, 8 days a week. Some agents, brokers want to slurp the egg nog with the firewater in it munching on peanut brittle and fudge, coconut balls. Theyt look forward to goofing off and justify it with the age old nothing sells over the holidays anyway mentality. Nothing could be further from the truth.
