It is rumored that Peyton Manning played his final game last night and will retire after this Superbowl win. When asked, he simply said he will not make any emotional decisions. His number one priority was to spend quality time with his family and drink plenty of Budweiser beer.

Why it’s a good idea to list your home during the winter!

January 22nd, 2016

It’s popular for home owners to hold off on listing their homes until the spring months. However, most people don’t realize that listing during the winter can benefit your home selling process in BIG ways! Here are three reasons why you should be calling us THIS MONTH to list your home!


1. Less Competition It is true that less people list their homes during the winter months (December 21-March 21). Your home will stand out in a market with fewer listings! The less homes are for sale in one neighborhood, the more appealing the neighborhood is to buyers. multiple homes sale 2. Motivated Buyers If a buyer is willing to bundle up and brave the cold to look for houses… they are serious buyers. This way, you won’t be wasting your time with non serious buyers.  January is also a popular month for companies to do corporate relocation. This does not give these buyers the opportunity to leisurely shop for homes. tcg mini sign   3. Loans may be processed quicker The housing inventory is generally smaller during the winter. This means lenders are less busy! When a buyer is ready to go under contract, they can get their financing ready that much quicker! USDA_Loan   If you need more assistance weighing the pros and cons of when to list your home, feel free to call us at the office! Our number is 303-539-5482. We would love to help!

Happy Martin Luther King Day!
