10 Reasons to List Your Home During the Holidays…

There is a common myth in the real estate business that no one purchases homes during the holiday season. Nothing could be further from the truth. Homebuyers need to purchase homes all year-long and there are some real advantages to placing homes on the market during the holidays. Some of these benefits included:

  1. Buyers are more serious during the holidays and quicker to make a decision.
  2. Fewer houses to choose from over the holidays means less competition for you.
  3. Houses “show better” when decorated for the holidays with the wonderful lights and festive colors associated with the season.
  4. Buyers are more emotional during the holidays and often base their decision on the warmth and good feeling they receive when viewing your house.
  5. Buyers take advantage of holiday time off work to look at houses.
  6. Many buyers want to purchase before the end of the year for financial and tax reasons.
  7. January is traditionally the month for corporate transfers. Transferees can’t wait until the Spring to buy. To capture these relocation buyers your house must be on the market.
  8. You may restrict showings during your own personal family events and still take advantage of your spruced up and decorated “ready to show” property.
  9. You can sell now, but specify a delayed closing or extend occupancy until early next year if you so desire and if agreeable by the buyers.
  10. By selling now you have an opportunity to buy during the spring, when more properties are on the market.
