Philadelphia, Bucks and Montgomery Counties Real Estate. Tips for home buyers, home sellers by Gita Bantwal,Realtor at Re/Max Centre Realtors.: There are people looking at homes this weekend.

There are people looking at homes this weekend.

I have received calls from agents to set up appointments on my listings for this weekend.

There are people looking at my listings for sale and for rent.

Some people think that there will be no activity during a holiday weekend.

There are people who have to relocate and start a new job in  January.

I have sold a listing on Black Friday in the past and have rented to tenants on many occasions.

It is a good idea to answer your phone if you have a listing because there are agents who may show the house.

 

When you read about events please check the year for the event as some people find information a year later and think it is for that year. . The posts remain online even after the event.

Hi Gita,

After the first of the week was very little as far as calls go. There is a big interest in the rest of the week and weekend. I hope it picks up more. Doing nothing is a bad thing.

Have a great day selling homes in Bucks County, Pa.

Best, Clint McKie

Gita: I have always found the weekend after Thanksgiving to be good for real estate as many buyers are free from the holiday and out looking.

Gita, this is a great weekend to pick up some sales, and many agents are taking the weekend off!   Answer the phone is great advice!

I agree Gita! I've told my sellers that this is a GREAT time to be on the market... the buyers are serious and many tend to have some time off this weekend to allow their home search to come to fruition.  Best wishes for a good transaction to come together for you.

Gita same here, I have made appointments for several listings.  With the long weekend those looking for a  home want to tour potential properties.

Buyers are out and about looking for deals on Black Friday...might as well be for a house.

Hi Gita,

You are right on! I wrote an offer on a home two days before thanksgiving and we came to terms Thanksgiving eve! I received 2 offers on my listings at the same time and both want to close by the end of the year. I'm out showing property today! Hoping these 2 new listings will fit the bill for my buyer!
