If you are interested in acquiring investment or commercial property, and you have any hope of doing so by the end of the year, you need to be acting right now. We just had a wonderful investment property close in 58 days from the day of listing to the day of closing. That's about the number of days left in 2011. It will most likely only work if you will be closing with cash, but almost 40% of all properties that have sold this year in Connecticut have sold for cash.
Many people like to try to put whatever expenses they can into the year just ending. Others have let the end of the year sneak up on them. Still others may have begun their tax planning, and may just have realized that they have real estate transactions that they should be completing. Whatever the reason, we see more rushing at the end of the year than at any other time. Both buyers and sellers are often motivated to move quickly, for personal, tax, or business reasons, and there's always a push to get things completed before the holidays simply sweep most work aside.
