Weekly wrap-up: happy holidays!
Surprisingly, buyers put twice as many homes under contract last week as they did that same week in 2019. But as expected sellers continued to hold off listing their homes. For 2021, it seems like buyer demand will be strong right out of the gate; savvy sellers would be wise to list early in the year to take advantage of it.
In all seriousness though, if you’ve enjoyed the newsletter this year and feel inclined to make a donation, I’ve setup a fundraiser for Mary’s Place. They are an organization that provides safe, inclusive shelter and services that support women, children and families on their journey out of homelessness. Urban Living will match all your donations. If you’d prefer to donate offline, just forward us your receipt and we’ll match it.
PS. If you’re looking for contemporary gingerbread kit, my daughter Ani and I recommend the Barbie Dreamhouse Cookie Kit. (note, it is cookie not gingerbread and cheaper at Cost Plus than Amazon.)
