Most people think selling your home during the holidays is a terrible idea. Contrary to popular belief, the holidays are a great time to sell! Here are eleven reasons why.

1. Buyers are more serious during the holidays. With so much to do this time of year, buyers are not wasting time to casually view homes.

2. Serious buyers have fewer houses to choose from during the holidays.

3. Less competition means more money for you. The number of listings drops to its yearly low each December.

4.  Listings will increase after January 1. This means less demand for your home. Less demand means less money for you.
5.  Houses show better when they are decorated for the Holidays.

6. Buyers are more festive during the holidays. They are more likely to pay your price.    

7. Some people must buy before the end of the year for tax reasons.

8. January is typically the month for employees to begin new jobs. Since transfers cannot wait until spring to buy, you need to be on the market during the holidays to capture those buyers.

9.  You can restrict showings of your home in order to celebrate the holidays with your family.

10. Buyers have more time to look for a home during the holidays than they do during the work week.

11.  By selling now, you have the opportunity to be a non-contingent buyer in the spring. There are more homes on the market and prices are lower. This means you could see high and buy low.

As you can see, there are plenty of reasons why the holidays are a great time to sell. If you have any questions for us, give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you!
