Labor Day is upon us, and we just wanted to shed some light on a holiday that not many people know the history of. We did some digging and are excited to share with you the history of Labor Day.
The origins of Labor Day go back all the way to 1885 in New York,where citizens passed a municipal ordinance for a holiday to honor the accomplishments of working people in America.
The real purpose of the holiday today, according to the Department of Labor’s website, is this:
“The vital force of labor added materially to the highest standard of living and the greatest production the world has ever known and has brought us closer to the realization of our traditional ideals of economic and political democracy. It is appropriate, therefore, that the nation pay tribute on Labor Day to the creator of so much of the nation’s strength, freedom, and leadership — the American worker.”
Another thing we should mention about Labor Day is that it signals an uptick of activity here in our market.More sellers are going to come onto the market looking to sell, and there are still a lot of buyers out there taking advantage of the low interest rateswe’ve been seeing.
If you’ve considered putting your home on the market, I invite you tocheck out our free home value report,which will give you an estimate of what your home could sell for in this post-Labor Day market.
I think you’ll be surprised at what your home is actually worth.

"Patrick Southern listed and sold my Hoboken condo and I could not have been happier. We talked a number of times over three years as I rented out the property as an investment. As soon as I was ready to pull the trigger and list, Patrick was there to work with me every step of the way from determining the list price, to discussing a sale strategy, to completion of the sale. I received multiple offers and was very pleased with the offer and price I ultimately accepted. I live in San Francisco and so it was of the utmost importance that I have an agent who I could trust to run the show from 3000 miles away. Patrick and his stellar staff did just that--taking care of necessary details, getting documents as necessary to me on the West Coast, communicating with me in a timely manner despite the time difference, and generally making the process smooth for me even though I was far away. I am an agent myself in San Francisco and so I know how great Patrick is. Highest marks for knowledge of the market, professionalism, and responsiveness."
