Thanksgiving Blessings! Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!
The Holidays are nearly upon us
and some home owners may be contemplating whether or not to list now and have
their home on the market during the holidays or wait until after the first of
To list or not to list? That is the question…and the answer may
It is true that real
estate sales have a tendency to slow down during the holidays but that is not
all bad, especially for sellers. The
lower number of houses on the market during the holidays typically means less
competition for the sale of your home. Less competition can mean a better price
for you, the seller. And there are other
positive reasons for a holiday listing:
looking at homes during the holidays are usually serious buyers
better when decorated for the holidays, the décor gives buyers warm feelings
have more time off from work to look during the holidays
may need to close before year end for tax purposes so it could mean a quicker
transfers often begin in January so buyers who are facing a job transfer are
motivated to find a home to move into
Realistically there is the
concern about showings interfering with your own holiday activities. For the most part that can be managed. While you always want to make your home
available for any potential buyers who want to see it, you can set boundaries
and restrict showings to certain days and hours so that you set the schedule
for when your home is available. Not sure? Give me a call and we can discuss your needs,
timing and what strategy would work best for you.
