Ahh, the Holiday Season, the time of year that Realtors get the questions:
'Isn't it a bad time to buy?'
'Isn't it a bad time to sell?'
Putting aside the usual marketing pitch of 'its never a bad time!', it really is a matter of the property, the market around you and what your (or the potential Buyers/Sellers) motivation is. Real Estate is a continuous cycle that runs 12 months a year, non-stop. That means that even though there are peaks and valley's in the market, your Realtor will be able to work with you to realize what is the best time for YOU to buy or sell. The market will change and move, but having the right Realtor will allow you to see if this is the right time and what result(s) you could be anticipating.
Like any business involving marketing strategies it works to your benefit as the Client to have a knowledgeable, detail-oriented Realtor. They should be able to not only study and be aware of the constant changes in your neighbourhood, but have the pulse of the city and the things that are happening that can and will affect Real Estate.
So give us a call, email or just stop by 'www.bowmanlewicki.com' to see what we have to offer. No matter if you're buyin' or sellin', the time for a conversation to see what's going on with homes and condos in Ottawa is always... 'the Right Time!'.
Your Neighbourhood Realtors,
Mike and Adam
