Winter Retreat or Hot Market?

Contrary to common belief, winter doesn't necessarily translate to a slowdown in the real estate market.

Her expertise ensures that sellers can effectively showcase their homes, tapping into the seasonal charm that winter brings.

The Influence of Seasonal Demand on Prices
