When it comes to investing I always ask people – “what is your edge?” What I mean by that is what skill or situation do you have that creates value for you.
Holiday Home Shopping For Deals is the Best!
This may seem basic, but simply doing what most people won’t creates opportunity. Something as easy as shopping for deals when most others aren’t.
That is the opportunity the holiday season gives us!
I love shopping for real estate deals from Thanksgiving to New years. Nearly every year I have closed on a property during that time and they were all good deals.
The bottom line is most people get too busy or overwhelmed during the holidays with family and responsibilities that shopping for deals takes a back seat.
Plus, if you are in the northern United States the weather isn’t so great either. A white Christmas makes for a pain in the butt viewing properties.
Point is – competition is less. The properties on the market and the leads you have are likely seeing less action and just touching base can give you the edge.
You never know what someone’s motivation is. For all you know your potential seller may want to be out of their property by year’s end and start the new year fresh.
Holiday Home Shopping Gets My Juices Flowing!
Like the saying goes, if you are willing to do today what most people won’t, you will be able to do for the rest of your life what most people can’t!
Holiday season is my favorite time to ramp up my property search.
P.S. – I’m closing on a property the first week of December. Love that holiday shopping!
