11 REASONS TO LIST YOUR HOME DURING THE HOLIDAYS Thinking of selling your house during the Holidays? “Tis the Season!” 1. People who are searching for a new home during the Holiday Season are more serious Buyers, ready to make a move! 2. Serious Holiday Buyers have fewer houses to choose from due to the lack of inventory, less competition means more $$ for you! 3. Since the supply of listings increases in January, there will be more competition on the market in the New Year. You need to beat them to the punch! 4. Houses show better when decorated for the Holidays- they are warm and inviting! 5. Buyers are more emotional during the Holidays, so they are more likely to pay your full asking price or more! 6. Buyers have more time to look for a home during the holidays, especially during the weekdays – due to their additional days off! 7. Some people need to purchase before the end of the year for tax purposes - they are motivated to move quickly! 8. January is often a month to begin new jobs. Since new employees cannot wait until spring to Buy, you must be on the market now to capture these anxious buyers! 9. Being on the market now still allows you the option to restrict showings during the week, so you can still hold your cookie baking and holiday parties as planned! 10. You can accept a Holiday offer and negotiate for a delayed closing or extended occupancy until the New Year! 11. By Selling now, you hold all the cards! Buyers during the spring market have more options, more houses to choose from and pay less money typically! You can essentially Sell Higher now than in the Springtime market. Happy Holidays!!
