Thinking of selling your home over the holidays?
Thinking maybe you should take it off the market until next year?
Here are some things to take into consideration when deciding to sell over the holiday season.
January is traditionally the month for many employees to begin new jobs or transfer. These employees cannot wait until the “Sales Season” gears up so NOW is the time!
Buyers have more time to look for a home during the holidays than they do during a typical work week.
Houses are more inviting with a feeling of family and tradition when decorated for the holidays. This makes it easier for prospective buyers to imagine your house as their new home.
Listings will increase at the end of January, more homes on the market in the same style as yours, means more competition for you and your home.
People who are looking for a home during the holidays are more likely to be serious buyers.
Serious buyers have fewer homes to choose from during the holiday season. Less inventory on the market means more opportunities for you.
Be sure to contact a local Realtor to help, they are familiar with the area, the pricing and comps as well as listings just coming on or going off the market. It pays to have a professional in your corner to advise you step by step through the process and benefits of selling NOW!
