Just like Black Friday blowout sales overpriced merchandise sits on the shelf or market longer.  Holiday shoppers are looking for deals and may offer way less than asking price on older listings.  Sellers shouldn’t be upset.  An offer is negotiable and deals can be made.

The current inventory of homes for sale in greater Cincinnati remains low.   And if you want to sell don’t wait until after the first of the year to list.  Interest rates are low and holiday shoppers are looking for homes to settle in before 2020.
