Its hard to believe its already Christmas! It really feels like it was just Thanksgiving yesterday. The end of the year is winding down. The housing market typically slows down over the next few weeks as people focus on family and buying gifts for each other. If you are still in the market to buy, do not stop your search. Most people will put things on hold right now but there will still be properties listed over the holidays. This could be a great time to find a property without a lot of competition and to get it at a discount from a seller looking to sell fast.
That being said, make sure you taking some time to relax and enjoy the time with family and friends. Our lives are busy. We do not get a lot of time off so taking advantage of the slow down during the holidays is a great way to recharge the batteries and get ready for 2018. Life doesn't stop. 2018 will be here before you know it and things will start all over again for the new year. If you think about it, from new years until Easter is the longest we go without a holiday break! Four months before we get together with family again is a long time.
I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season! Enjoy the time off. Relax. Drink. Be Merry. Spend time with family and friends. Do something holiday related. Watch some holiday movies (there's plenty, especially if you are into the Hallmark channel). But overall, just take it all in. The holidays come only once a year so don't let them slip by.
