Is it too late to list my Palos Verdes home?

"I waited too long to list my house this year, didn't I?"  The caller's tone indicated he wanted confirmation of his suspicion.  After all, the kids are back in school and pumpkins are appearing in stores and at front doors.  Can the holiday frenzy be far behind, and who, if anyone, will be shopping for a home during such a hectic time of the year?

Contrary to popular opinion, the housing market does not come to a grinding halt during the final quarter of the year.  Many years it is my best quarter.  With summer relegated to memories and photos, and another year dawning, many senior sellers begin to wonder if it's time to make the move to the next phase of their housing life whether it be buying smaller and staying local or making a move to a new locale.

Job transfers, children leaving home and changes in financial situations do not vanish during the final months of the year either.  Lucky for sellers, there are always buyers with housing needs at this time of year.  I'm currently working with an out of the country buyer planning to open a division of his business in the Los Angeles area.  He is carefully perusing the Palos Verdes luxury homes currently on the market.  A young executive already working in the area is shopping for a home and plans to move the family over the holidays.  Another young couple will purchase a starter home as soon as the wedding and honeymoon are over.  The list goes on with more buyers waiting in the wings to find the right house for them in Palos Verdes.

Selling a home in California is not a seasonal business, it's personal.  The right time to sell a house is when the time is right for you.
