Is the winter really a good time to sell a house?

Selling a home during winter is both a blessing and a curse. Fewer homes for sale means less competition, but less competition also means fewer showings. Here’s the good news: the buyers who are active tend to be more motivated and you’ll have to deal with fewer showings. There’s no question that homes rarely show as well in the winter as the spring and summer. But, if your home is well lighted inside and out and features cozy rooms, you’ll blast to the top of a buyer’s list. A lit fireplace on a cold day creates a cozy atmosphere that is hard to beat. Use extra lighting and warm rooms to slow your prospective buyers down and appreciate everything your home has to offer.

Laura is the most amazing person I have had the privlege of meeting. My husband and I will be forever grateful for Laura because she never left our side during one of the most important decisions in our life, helping us find the perfect homesite for our next home. Laura represents what is right with humanity. Laura is hard-working, determined, honest, supportive, and so very much more. Beverly-Hanks Reality is very fortunate to have Laura on their team! Amazing in every aspect of a Broker and much more. She will go the extra mile to find the perfect home/property. Laura loves what she does and cares about her clients!! She listens!!!!! Outstanding, amazing, and so worth every minute of this experience. My husband and I just purchased the most beautiful piece of land in beautiful Waynesville.

My experience with Laura was wonderful. She was kind and patient, always ready and willing to answer any questions or concerns that we had. She was patient in helping us find the right home to purchase and very helpful and informative with everything from the offer to the closing. Should we ever decide to buy again we will be using Laura again and we will be recommending her to anyone we meet who maybe wanting to buy.

I have known Laura Thomas and her wonderful family for many years. When l made my decision to downsize my house there was no other consideration... l only wanted to list with Laura! Knowing I would be her first listing (she's sold plenty of homes and land) didn't even make me think twice! I knew Laura would work very hard to see that my house would get the attention it would need to sell! 30 days later I was fortunate enough to close! Since my house sold before l can close on my new house, l have been fortunate to be able to live in my neighbor's house! Her house has been on the market for a year and has not sold... since the rapid sale of my house, my neighbor has now changed realtors to Laura Thomas! I just hope my new house will be ready before Laura sells the one I'm in!
