As the holiday season nears, many homeowners who are contemplating selling think the holiday season isn’t a good time to sell their house. Because of that misconception, many will wait until after the start of the New Year, or even until spring to put their house on the market.
Contrary to what many think, the holiday season is a great time to sell a house! Putting a house on the market over the holidays can result in a seller getting a higher price and a quicker sale.
How can that be you ask? Here are three great reasons:
- Buyers will have fewer homes to consider because competing inventory will be at its lowest level over the holidays.
- Although there are fewer buyers looking at homes over the holidays, those that do are serious and highly motivated.
- Homes that are tastefully decorated for the holidays show well.
So if you’re thinking about selling and planned to wait until after the holidays, you should consider going ahead now. The first step is to consult a real estate professional who is a local expert in your area.
Happy Holidays… and Happy Selling!
