10 Good Reasons to List Your House During the Holidays

1. People who look for a home during the holidays are more serious Buyers
2. Serious Buyers have fewer houses to choose from during the holidays, so you have less competition
3. Since the supply of listings will dramatically increase in January, there will be less demand for your particular home! Less demand means less money for you!
4. Houses “show better” when decorated for the holidays.
5. Buyers are more emotional during the holidays, so they are more likely to pay your price!
6. Buyers have more time to look for a home during the holidays than they do during the work week!
7. 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!
8. You can still be on the market, but you have the option to restrict showings during your personal family events
9. You can sell now, but specify a delayed closing or extended occupancy until early next year if you desire.
10. By selling now you have an opportunity to buy during the Spring, when many houses are on the market.
Bottom Line?
By listing now, you may have fewer actual showings, but more qualified and motivated Buyers. Ask about our 1-Day Listing Guarantee.
