Here are ten reasons why you should list during the holiday season.
Happy Holidays! Are you thinking about selling your home? Here are ten compelling reasons to list your home during the holiday season.
1. Home seekers during the holidays are typically serious buyers.
2. Serious buyers face reduced options, leading to less competition and potentially more advantageous deals for sellers.
3. Listing in January floods the market with more options, diminishing demand for your home and potentially lowering its value.
4. Homes tend to showcase better during the holiday season.
5. Buyers often have more leisure time to explore properties during their holiday breaks.
6. Some buyers aim to finalize purchases by year-end for tax purposes.
7. January marks a period when employees often commence new jobs, leading to a surge in home buying for relocating individuals who can’t wait until spring.
8. Sellers can choose to limit showings during the six or seven holiday days to enjoy their time while still being on the market.
9. Selling now may result in a higher selling price with options for delayed closing or extended occupancy until early next year.
10. Selling now might make you a non-contingent buyer in the spring market, allowing for high selling prices and potentially lower purchase prices.
