It’s easy to shy away from listing and selling your home during the holidays. Everyone says the market slows down in the Winter and you should just wait until Spring, right? WRONG!

Here are 12 reasons selling your house during the holidays is an excellent idea:

Thanksgiving evokes certain unshakable images: Long tables crammed with too much food. Beloved and bickering family members consuming way too much of that food. Overstuffed family members staggering away from the table to watch football. And once the crumbs and turkey bones and cranberries are cleared away, just about everyone gearing up for the biggest shopping day of the year: Black Friday.

While prowling the malls for fantastic deals has become enshrined as a traditional part of many Americans’ holiday season, it has long been considered conventional wisdom that this sales fervor doesn’t extend to shopping for a home—that there’s no deluge of would-be buyers surfing the Web for listings or slogging through the (presumed) snow to open houses.

large house sellers disclosure  

When it comes to selling your home, heed your mother’s advice: Honesty is always the best policy.

It’s a question that plagues many residential sales: As a seller, what do you — and don’t you — need to tell the buyer about your home? “My rule of thumb is this: If you’re not sure if you should disclose something, you probably should,”. “Think of seller disclosures like a Carfax report.” Plus, the harm in not disclosing something can result in some serious legal and financial woes. Here’s a list of what you legally need to include in your sellers’ disclosure to keep yourself out of hot water.

1. Lead paint

One item is a must when it comes to being upfront with potential buyers: the use of lead-based paint in your home. “If the home

Got a lucky number? Like, a really lucky, Powerball-deciding, superstition-fueling, wedding date–determining number you evoke like an enchanted incantation? For surprisingly large numbers of Americans, that magic number is 7. But that’s not the case with the Chinese. In Chinese culture, 8, or ba, is considered the luckiest number because its pronunciation is similar to fa, which means to make a fortune.

With the surge of Chinese buyers in the U.S. property market—the National Association of Realtors® estimates that Chinese buyers will purchase $27.3 billion in residential properties by the end of 2016—we’ve seen increasing numbers of homes priced at $888,888 to lure buyers.

But could the pursuit of good luck really be driving unusual real

Facebook Ends Ethnic Targeting Ads....

Facebook announced that it will no longer permit marketers who buy housing, credit-related, or employment ads to post on its site to target ethnic groups. U.S. lawmakers had warned the social media giant that the Facebook feature allowing marketers to target users in such ways could be discriminatory.

“There are many nondiscriminatory uses of our ethnic-affinity solution in these areas, but we have decided that we can best guard against discrimination by suspending these types of ads,” Erin Egan, Facebook’s chief privacy officer, wrote in a blog post.

Facebook did not allow advertisers to target someone specifically by race, per se, but by what
