So you are thinking of buying or selling a home now? Steve McLinden, real estate adviser with Bankrate.com, offers these three good reasons not to wait, even though the holidays are approaching:
1. The market is improving. Most markets have either turned or are close to turning.
2. All real estate is local. Homes in great locations are always in demand.
3. Spring is coming soon. Many potential buyers are starting their online searches right after the holidays, making mid- to late February a great time to start marketing.
