Jay Day the Day Home Team of Real Estate Teams with our weekly real estate podcast telling you up to date what's going on in the industry on this Friday morning. What are we up to, Jay?
Well, I'm really trying to squeak this one in, but it was an article that I saw that I thought was important to talk about, and it was reasons why people may want to sell their home before the new year. So a lot of people get into holiday mode. They're thinking, oh, I'll just wait until January or I'll wait until the spring. And one of the biggest advantages of doing it before then is you're getting one step ahead of other sellers that are going to wait. So again, when the inventory is lower, your chances of selling for more money and without having to do as many things increases dramatically. So a lot of people tend to wait and say, I'm going to go, I've got Thanksgiving, I've got Christmas or Hanukkah, I've got New Year's. I'm just going to wait and deal with this later. And we've actually found quite a few people recently have decided, again, let's just jump ahead of this. Let's get our house on the market when there's less competition. And one of the other things that, and I've said this for years, is the buyers that are looking around the holiday season are extremely serious because they're taking time out of other things that they will be doing to find a place to live. And when people ask us, when's the best time to sell? I'm like, well, there's always people that need to move. So there's not a time where it's like, oh, there's never a house that sells in this month. It just doesn't happen. So when you're talking about that, that is one of the big advantages of making the decision to do something before the holidays. And like I said, we've got lots of people doing it. I tell people, if we get it in before the holidays, we'll get the photos done. So you can still do all your decorating. We're not going to limit you from doing your decorating while the house is on the market. We don't operate that way. People understand around the holidays you're going to see stuff like that.
And then some people might want to call a real estate agent right around all the busy holidays and they get an answering machine, or they get us, call us back next week. Or they'll say, look, why don't you call us? Wait until the snow's gone and call us in the spring.
Yeah, we've written offers on Christmas Eve, new Year's Eve, it's part of our job. And when we have clients that are looking, our job is to best represent them and do what we need to do to get them to where they want to be.
Loved ones pass away every day. People get fired from jobs, people get hired from jobs every day. None of that waits for the seasons.
No, it does not. So don't think because we're getting into the holiday season that you need to wait. If you have any questions, you can reach directly out to us. We'll give you the good, the bad, the ugly, and then we can explain all that so that you can make an informed decision of what timing is best for you. So you ready for the house of the week?
Yes sir. What have we got?
Man, this is a cool one. 13970 Brown Road in Smithsburg, Maryland. 685,000. This is a log home with a traditional log cabin look. If you watch Yellowstone, this sort of reminds you of that. It's got the wraparound porch.
It's got the ranch house look.
Yeah. Yeah. Over 3000 square feet of living space. The master suite is on the main level. The hardwood flooring inside is hickory. The basement is fully finished. It's on over three acres. Inside, there's really unique and custom handrails. Super, super cool looking. There's an upper level loft that's open. You can see down to the family room below. Three full bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms. There's a fireplace in the family room. That's a two story. Again, it just gives that great feel. I mentioned the wraparound porch. In addition to that, they just had a brand new roof installed in October of this year. They also just redid, put a new blacktop driveway in. The logs, because when you have a log home, you do have work you have to do to maintain the logs. They were professionally restored this October as well. In addition to the house, if you are a person who likes working in workshops, you like working on cars, there is a massive, when I say massive, it is humongous. It's a three level four car garage with a 10,000 pound lift in there already. And in addition, if you drive around the back of the garage, there's an additional garage bay underneath, which could make it a five car garage. And on the second story, there's a workshop with 200 amp electric service. There's a deck. You need to check this one out. We've got photos, we've got video.
