Why The Holidays Are A Great Time To List Your Home
Considering selling your home sometime next year? Why are you waiting? Existing home sales have increased from November to December an average of 4.5% in the past three holiday seasons.That means even though there are less homes on the market, buyers are out there buying at a steady, if not increased, pace. So again, why are you waiting?We know that the thought of selling your home during the holidays might make you feel like The Grinch, . Everyone knows winter is the season of giving and spring is the season of selling. Plus, working home showings into a busy holiday schedule is like trying to shove a 20-foot tree into your living room.
If you're ready to sell your house, you don't have to wait. Selling during the holidays doesn’t have to spell disaster. You may be surprised that there are actually advantages to selling your home in the winter! Here are some of our favorites.
1) SERIOUS BUYERS. While there may be less people out actively looking, the ones that are out are often times relocating, or have a serious need to buy a home, and fast. Meaning they won't be wasting your time with unnecessary showings.
2) There are fewer homes on the market. This means there will be less competition for you, and less competition means more money in your pocket!
3) Most buyers have more time to look at properties during this time of the year because they have time off from work,
