Conventional wisdom is to take your home off the market for the holidays or wait to relist after the first of the year. In other words I don't want to be bothered with selling you home during the difficult months. People purchase homes all year and sometimes are better than others but home owners area always buying and selling.
I believe that the more exposure your home has the more likely you are to sell. In these difficult times you must be vigilant and have an agent willing to go the extra mile. Now I won't be working Christmas or New Years Eve, but I will be the rest of the season. Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
