11 Reasons On Why You Should List Your Home During The Holidays

Deck the halls for a happy holidays, but why not something more? When you’re house is decorated for the holidays it will look beautiful to potential buyers. And you could have the added benefit of being home for the holidays in a bright new house.  Many people feel that the holiday season is not a good time to sell, but think about why this might be the best time!

  1. SERIOUS BUYERS… People who look for a home during the Holidays are more serious buyers.
  1. LESS INVENTORY… Serious buyers have fewer houses to choose from during the Holidays and less competition means more money for you.
  1. HIGHER DEMAND… Since the supply of listings will dramatically increase in January, there will be less demand for your particular home. Less demand means less money for you.
  1. SHOWS BETTER…. Houses show better when decorated for the Holidays.
  1. EMOTIONAL BUYERS… Buyers are more emotional during the Holidays, so they are more likely to pay a higher price.
  1. MORE TIME TO SHOP… Buyers have more time to look for a home during the Holidays than they do during a working week.
  1. TAX BREAKS… Some people must buy before the end of the year for tax reasons.
  1. TRANSFEREES... January is traditionally the month for employees to begin new jobs. Since transferees cannot wait until spring to buy, you must be listed now to capture that market.
  1. YOU CHOOSE…. You can still be on the market, but you have the option to restrict showings during the six or seven days during the Holidays.
  1. CLOSE WHEN CONVENIENT… You can sell now for more money and we will provide for a delayed closing or extended occupancy until early next year.
  1. SET YOURSELF UP TO BUY… By selling now, you may have an opportunity to be a non-contingent buyer during the spring, when many more houses are on the market for less money! This will allow you to sell high and buy low.
