Trulia has an article today on why the holiday season, and November in particular, is the time of the year that your home has the highest probability of selling. According to Trulia, “homes listed during this time are more likely to sell, sell more quickly, and sell closer to the asking price.

A great way to have a happy Thanksgiving is to get your home sold!
