To List or Not To List Your House During the Holidays?

This time of year gets so busy for everyone and by the looks of the weather the snow is coming soon! Many sellers have the notion that it is best to wait until after the holidays to list their home, but I am here to tell you differently!!! The 12 Days of (why to list your house before)Christmas 1. People who look for a home during the Holidays are more serious buyers 2. Serious buyers have fewer houses to choose from during the Holidays and less competition means more money for you 3. Since the supply of listings will dramatically increase in January, there will be less demand for your particular home. Less demand means less money for you 4. Houses show better when they are decorated for the Holidays 5. Buyers are more emotional during the Holidays, so they are more likely to pay your price 6. Buyers have more time to look for a home during the Holidays than they do during a working week 7. Some people must buy before the end of the year for tax reasons 8. January is traditionally the month for employees to begin new jobs. Since transferees cannot wait until spring to buy, you must be on the market now to capture that market 9. You can still be on the market, but you have the option to restrict showings during the Holidays. 10. You can sell now for more money and we can negotiate a delayed closing or extended occupancy until early next year 11. By selling now, you may have an opportunity to be a non-contingent buyer during the spring, when many more houses are on the market for less money. This will allow you to sell high and buy low. 12. We want to be the agents that decorate your yard with a SOLD sign!
