Internet has easily changed the world – no doubt about it. We receive our news online, pay bills online, read more email than snail mail, are tethered to our smart phones, and shop for more and more items online too. The Internet has no doubt changed the face of our lives – and it has certainly done the same for selling real estate here in Murphy, NC.
Traditionally, we as Realtors experience a “selling season.” From May through the first two weeks in December was busy and the rest of the year was “dead,” as so many retired real estate agents explain. I have been told by many when Christmas rolled around, you might as well take an extended vacation through April or May. This likely was because if someone from out of town wanted to purchase a home, they had no way to see what homes and land was available for sale. Because of that, they waited to travel till the weather was more favorable for them.
The dynamics have changed drastically. No longer is this old adage true. I most certainly attribute it to the Internet. Now, no matter the time of year or temperature, folks can sit in the comfort of their home and shop for homes and properties online. They can find a plethora pictures and virtually walk through a home almost as if they were here in person. Now, they can find a house they want to see and buy throughout the entire year and can easily jump in their vehicle to come see it.
We experience this “leveling” of the season first hand as sales during the “off months” continue to climb to higher levels. I was amazing just how busy and how many properties sold in January, February, March, and April. The fact is, people’s desire to purchase a home never changes in the time of year. Now, the Internet brings properties right to their home no matter where they are located in the world.
