"With the holidays and cold weather, sales tend to dip in December when compared to the previous months. It's a trend we see almost every year. A decrease in new listings and an increase in sales can equal less inventory on the market. With increased competition for the properties available, this looks to be an opportune time to sell your property." - RAHB President Kathy Della-Nebbia.
