Sell Your Home This WinterAre you ready to sell your home, but waiting out the winter before you decide to put it on the market? You may have heard that winter isn't the best time to sell a home, but there are actually some significant advantages to putting your home on the market during the cold-weather months. Some of the most committed buyers on the market will still be shopping hard during the winter, and a slightly slower market gives your home a better chance to stand out from the pack. Still need convincing? Our REALTORS® have five reasons why winter can be a great time to sell your house.

Elkhart Indiana Wellfield Botanic Gardens
If you're a serious home buyer, it makes sense to continue your search through the holiday season. Open houses are less crowded. REALTORS® have more time and mortgage companies are a bit more flexible. If you're considering buying one of our Elkhart homes for sale, you'll find an attractive assortment of homes and you can mix your home-shopping with local holiday fun.  

The holidays are also a great time to get to know Elkhart residents and community traditions. There are plenty of local holiday events. But if you have time for only one, visit Wellfield Botanic Gardens Winter Wonderland Holiday Lights 2017 presented by Welch Packaging. It's a "must-see" local Elkhart holiday event. 

Our REALTORS® live and work in Elkhart. Like many residents, we enjoy the Wellfield Botanical Gardens year round. It's a wonderful place to experience nature at its most beautiful. The gardens are even more special during the holidays when beautiful lights and music transform them into a true winter wonderland.

Goshen Indiana Community of the YearGoshen, Indiana isn't the kind of place that everybody around the world has heard about. Yet, from its long history of RV manufacturing to its charming nickname of "The Maple City," there's just something about Goshen that entices so many visitors to learn more.

With a population around 31,000 and a location that's convenient to many larger communities, Goshen is mainly known around its home state for the Elkhart County 4-H Fair – one of the biggest county fairs anywhere in the country. Every year, participants travel from far and wide to see it.

Look a little closer, however, and there's even more to this town – after all, it was just named the 2017 Community of the Year by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce.  Let's see what Goshen is really all about.
