This is great news for home sellers, especially those who have been waiting to for the market to return before listing their home.

This is a win / win for both buyers and sellers, and a good sign for the economy over all!

There is typically a dip during the holidays, as sellers don’t want to bother with listing and having their home shown during the holidays, and many buyers also often take the holidays off from their search.
