7 Reasons You Should Sell Your Home During the Holidays
The Holiday season from November through January has many advantages for Home Sellers, from motivated buyers to the excellent holiday curb appeal. Here are our Top 7 Reasons you should sell your home during the Holidays.
1. Motivated Buyers
Anyone who is house hunting during the holidays probably has a good reason for doing so. Motivated Buyers are more likely to agree to your Listing Price.
2. Supply and Demand
With fewer houses on the market, there will be less competition attracting Buyers. Less competition means more money for you! The supply of listings dramatically increases in January, so take advantage of this window of opportunity!
3. Holiday Curb Appeal
Homes often look their best during the holidays, so deck the halls! Give house hunters a warm place to get out of the cold by warming your home. Offer some home made cookies and your showings will be a hit!
4. Christmas Vacation
Buyers have more time off during the holidays, and more time to look for a home.
5. New Year's is Coming
Some people need to buy a home before the end of the year for tax reasons. January is also traditionally the month for employees to begin new jobs and transferees looking for a new home won't have time to wait until Spring. You must be on the market now if you want to capture the attention of such buyers.
6. You'll Still be Home for the Holidays
Selling during the Holidays doesn't mean you won't be able to celebrate them. You have the option to restrict showings on certain days, so all your holiday plans can still go as planned.
7. Sell High and Buy Low
We can provide a delayed closing or extended occupancy until early next year! This puts you in the perfect position to sell now for more money and be a Non-Contingent Buyer during the Spring. (Contingent Buyers are those who must sell their current home in order to purchase a new home) This will allow you to Sell High and Buy Low.
