Searching for Houses in Los Angeles During the Holiday Season?
What’s the best thing about searching for a houses in Los Angeles during the holiday season? The fact that homeowners who are willing to have their homes shown now are serious about selling.
They’re not just “testing the market” to see what their home might bring. They have a valid reason for wanting to sell.
That doesn’t mean that they’re desperate and will accept ridiculously low offers. It does mean that they’ll probably be willing to negotiate and perhaps bend a little on either the price or the concessions they make to a buyer.
What’s the worst thing about searching for houses in Los Angeles during the holiday season? Aside from the fact that the search is keeping you away from your own holiday festivities and tasks, it’s the fact that you may need to look past the holiday décor to get a good sense of the home.
Some homeowners do go a bit overboard on decorating – which can take your focus away from seeing the normal traffic flows, visualizing how your own furniture might fit into the rooms, etc. You’ll need to discipline yourself to look at the house – not the decorations.
The second-worst thing is that some agents are not available to help you. They simply take a few weeks off in December, and some of them don’t leave anyone designated to help their clients.
I’m not one of those agents.
