The holiday season is here in Sonoma County, and with it, the expected quieting of real estate activity as the focus shifts to holiday gatherings, seeing friends and family, and warm celebrations.
Buying or selling a property may not be top of mind for you with all the other festivities this month, but there is something to be said for listing your home during the quiet of winter: there’s less competition on the market, and buyers who are still actively looking are serious buyers.
Homes that go into contract during the second half of December typically wouldn’t close escrow until sometime in January—what a way to kick off 2024! Food for thought, along with all the other holiday delicacies.
Autumn is upon us and we’re in the midst of the post-Labor Day / pre-holidays bump in the real estate market – a window of time that’s coming to a close soon!
One of the questions I’ve been getting a lot lately is, “Should I wait and see what interest rates do next year or jump in the market now?”
A valid question for both buyers and sellers.
Before sharing my perspective, I think it’s wise to look at what’s happening in the market.
I'm happy to hear that 4th of July Fireworks celebrations are happening across Sonoma County, after several years of cancellations due to the pandemic and wildfire danger. Here's a list of dates and locations for Fourth of July Fireworks planned in Sonoma County. We will keep the event list updated as well with the most current information, so be sure to keep checking back. And hey--you may be able to see some of these from the comfort of your own home, or at a friend's home. From my house I can see Sebastopol and Windsor on July 3rd, and downtown Santa Rosa (though this year it seems they won't be held July 4th). In years past I have gone to the beach on the Russian River in Guerneville--super great place to watch, but it appears those are not happening this year. The event at the Green Music Center in Rohnert Park will feature the Santa Rosa Symphony and Transcendence Theatre Company.
