It’s unanimous among Boston Realtors: If you’re thinking about selling your Boston condo, get moving on that now. No reason to wait. there’s no longer the right season to sell Boston real estate
The Boston real estate market has traditionally had its two peak seasons—Spring (April/May June) and Fall (Sept through Thanksgiving). However, the coronavirus has changed all that. Buyers aren’t going anywhere for the summer, and sellers have a prime opportunity to get their attention with low Boston condo for sale inventory.
Boston real estate: it could get better, or worse
The bottom line is that sellers shouldn’t wait around for another virus surge, shelter in place order, or the presidential election to happen. Yes, all that can influence buyer behavior, not necessarily for the better.
Sellers should seize the summer and make every effort to get their properties on the market – this is your season
So this begs the question, has COVID-19 change our outlook on the Boston real estate seasons? Short answer it seems it has,
Let me end this blog post with I hope an uplifting story:
There was a man who had four sons. He wanted his sons to learn not to judge things too quickly. So he sent them each on a quest, in turn, to go and look at a pear tree that was a great distance away.
The first son went in the winter, the second in the spring, the third in summer, and the youngest son in the fall. When they had gone and returned, he called them together to describe what they had seen. The first son said that the tree was ugly, bent, and twisted. The second son said it was covered with green buds and full of promise. The third son disagreed; he said it was laden with blossoms that smelled so sweet and looked so beautiful, it was the most graceful thing he had ever seen. The last son disagreed with all of them; he said it was ripe and drooping with fruit, full of life and fulfillment.
The man explained to his sons that they were all right because they had each seen only one season in the tree’s life. He told them that you cannot judge a tree, or a person, by only one season. That the essence of who they are, are the pleasure, joy, and love that come from that life, can only be measured at the end, when all the seasons are up. If you give up when it’s winter, you will miss the promise of your spring, the beauty of your summer, and the fulfillment of your fall.
My final thoughts
Don’t let the pain of COVID-10 or one season destroy the joy of all the rest. Don’t judge life by one difficult season. Persevere through the difficult patches, and the better times are sure to come in time. Aspire to inspire before you expire. Live simply, love generously, and care deeply.
