Many homeowners postpone selling their homes until after the holidays, but there are actually 4 very good reasons to sell during the holiday season.
- Homebuyers who are relocating from other areas of the state or country are looking for homes year-round. They are often moving for job-related reasons, and employers aren’t always willing to wait until moving is convenient.
- Homebuyers who are shopping now don’t want to wait until after the holidays. Perhaps their home has already sold, and they need to move, or they are hoping the market is “quieter,” so they can get first choice of available homes for sale.
- Homes that are decorated for the holidays are often colorful, warm and inviting, creating curb appeal as well as a welcoming feeling when prospective buyers are touring your home.
- Home inventory continues to be low, so there is less competition during this time of year.
It might seem like a hassle to sell your home during this hectic time of year, but you can structure your home listing and tours to meet your needs. Having a holiday party next Saturday? No problem. Let your Realtor now that you won’t be able to show your home that day. You are in control.
