11 Reasons To Sell Your Home This Holiday Season
People often think that the real estate market freezes up during the Holiday season, but this is simply not true! Sometimes this is actually the best time to sell a home if you’re looking for a quick and profitable sale.
Buyers looking for homes during the holidays are serious about purchasing. They often have been transferred for a job, or are in a situation where they need to buy a home quickly. This means a quick, profitable sale for you!
Serious buyers have fewer houses to choose from during the Holidays and less competition mean more money for you!
Supply usually falls during the Holidays, so if you’re selling your home then you’ll face much less competition. With less homes on the market, you’ll have the upper hand in negotiations with a buyer. Since the supply of listings will dramatically increase in January, there will be less demand for your particular home! Less demand for you!
Buyers are more emotional during the holidays, and you can use this to your advantage when you place a price on your home.
Houses show better when decorated for the Holidays! Your home will look more inviting during the Holidays, and it will show better. What’s more inviting to a buyer than walking into a warm home with a fire lit and cookies baking in the oven? They’ll instantly feel at home!
Buyers have more time to look for a home during the Holidays than they do during a working week!
Some people must buy before the end of the year for tax reasons!
January is traditionally the month for employees to begin new jobs. Since transferees cannot wait until Spring to buy, you must be on the Market now to capture that market!
You can still be on the market, but you have the option to restrict showings during the six or seven days during the Holidays!
You can sell now for more money and we will provide for a delayed closing or extended occupancy until early next year!
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 now!
These are only a few of the reasons why you should consider selling your home this Holiday season. If you need to figure out how much your home is worth before selling, please use my free home evaluation tool here:
