The holiday season in our Hoboken market means different things for buyers and sellers. 

If you’re a seller and your home isn’t ready to be on the market in the next 10 to 15 days, you should probably think about waiting until 2018 to list. Generally speaking, the buyer pool decreases a tad from Thanksgiving to New Year’s and the market shifts away from you. 

However, now is the perfect time to get started on your marketing for 2018, and there are a couple reasons why. First, fall is a beautiful time of year, meaning your home’s photography will look a lot better. Secondly, now is the time of year when people focus on hosting friends and family for the holidays, which means homes will be cleaner and look nicer. From a staging standpoint, you can take advantage of this by taking pictures of the interior.

“The buyer pool shrinks and homes tend to stay on the market longer this time of year.”

If you’re a buyer, this is one of the few times of the year that the market will work in your favor in our area. As I said, the buyer pool shrinks and homes tend to sit on the market longer. 

Whether you’re a buyer or a seller, if you have any more questions about our Hoboken market or you’re thinking of making a move soon, don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I’d be happy to help you.
