Items that buyers and sellers should be aware of:

  • Don’t hire an agent offering discounted fees because you will have discounted services
  • Look for an agent that’s good at negotiating
  • Find an agent who focuses on you and knows how to market
  • When you’re a seller, you must know in advance what months are the best time to sell
  • March, April, May, and June are still the strongest time for home sellers. These are the only time period in a year that the number of buyers is going down by 50% 
  • The best time for buyers to buy is December
