Thinking About Listing Your Home This Holiday Season?
You may have heard it said that “the winter real estate season is slow.” Or that, “no one is really buying or selling over the holidays.” The truth is, the holidays are a PERFECT time to list your home and maximize your value.
Did you know….
1. Sell High, Buy Low
By selling now, you may have an opportunity to be a non-contingent buyer during the Spring when there are traditionally more houses on the market which could ultimately drive prices down. This could mean you sell high and buy low.
2. Sell For More
You can sell now for more money and we will provide for a delayed closing or extended occupancy until early next year.
3. Restrict Showings
Even though your house will be on the market, you still have the option to restrict showings during the six or seven days around the Holidays. We keep you in control.
4. New Jobs
January is traditionally a 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 the market.
5. End Of The Year Home Buying
Some people must buy before the end of the year for tax reasons.
6. More Time To Look
Buyers have more time to look for a home during the Holidays than they do during a work week. And those buyers tend to be more emotional during the Holidays, so they are more likely to pay your price.
7. Homes During The Holidays
Houses show better when decorated for the Holidays.
8. Greater Opportunity
When supply goes down it means there is a greater opportunity to capture motivated buyers AND a better sales price for you.
9. Less Competition
Serious buyers have fewer houses to choose from during the Holidays and less competition means more money for you. People who look for homes during the Holidays are more serious buyers!
