March Break-does it Matter???

Heading into March Break holidays so the discussion is about listings during these few weeks.  We're already at historically low inventory levels so will it get worse or better this month?

It matters most to families.  If you don't have children, you're probably staying home.  I mean, why  would you book your vacation when prices are up, & holiday destinations are crowded with kids?

If you're selling, it could be great to list & leave it with your realtor to be able to show your home & not worry about tidying up for every showing.  DocuSign means we can do a deal no matter where we are so business will still get done.

On the other hand, you may think that the potential Buyers are out of town too so you won't get the market exposure you would in April, or you may be one of those who still thinks we have a "Spring" market.  It's sort of true-people like to list their homes when the weather is better, BUT schools close registration early in the year & if you're in 1 of those areas where schools are full, an earlier purchase in the school catchment is needed.

If you're a Buyer without children, it's a part time job, so the hunt continues.  If you're a Seller of a smaller condo, the Buyers are here.

My guess is listings will be down but hopefully that will bode well for April!
