7 Reasons The Holidays are a Great Time to Sell Your Home
During this time of the year we are always having conversations with homeowners who are looking to sell and are trying to decide whether or not to list their house now or wait until after the holidays. We often hear sellers believe in the myth that “homes don’t sell” during the holidays. Others think that it is a bad time to sell with just simply all of the chaos during the holiday season.
We get great results for our clients this time of year and throughout the holiday season.
Here are “7 Reasons The Holidays are a Great Time to Sell Your Home.”
1. BETTER BUYERS
It is a fact that there are less home buyers looking to make a move during the holiday season. However the buyers that are looking are serious….REALLY SERIOUS. As a home seller, you want the most serious buyers in the market looking at your home.
2. LOWER INVENTORY
Just like there are fewer buyers in the market during the holidays, there are also fewer homes for sale. Lower inventory means less competition, and with our high-level marketing you will have a competitive advantage by having one the premium listings on the market to target buyers.
3. BEAT THE RUSH
Selling your home after the holidays is just like the gym after the New Year. Everyone settles back into their routine and we start to see a flood of new homes coming on the market. As a home seller, it is better to have your home for sale while inventory is low and you beat the rush of inventory that is coming so you don’t get lost in the shuffle.
4. BETTER SHOWINGS
Simply put, homes show better during the holidays with the decorations, lights, and Christmas trees. Buyers absolutely love the staging and decorating of homes this time of year and your home will show incredibly well at a time when emotional purchasing is at its peak.
5. BUYER AVAILABILITY
Many people have more time off during the holiday season, meaning buyers who are looking have more time to dedicate to looking at homes. Having your home on the market at a time when buyers are most available will greatly increase our chances of landing the perfect buyer for your home.
6. YOU STAY IN CONTROL
Sellers are often reluctant to list their home for sale during the busy holiday season. Holiday parties, family gatherings, shopping and other functions can make it difficult to show your home whenever a buyer wants to see it. We understand that and can set showing time restrictions that work for you.
7. STAY IN YOUR HOME THROUGH THE HOLIDAYS AND INTO THE NEW YEAR
Even if you sell your home during the holidays, we can negotiate terms for you that will allow you to remain in the home, not just through the holidays but beyond and into the New Year. This will allow you to not have to stress about having to move during the holidays.
