3 Reasons to Sell During the Holidays

The holiday season is here and I’ve been hearing a lot of people say they are going to wait to list their home until the spring. While we do see the most transactions during the spring months, there are actually some great benefits to listing your home now.
  1. There is less competition - Yes, there are more transactions in the beginning of the year, but there are also more homes for buyers to choose from. There are fewer homes on the market which means your home is in higher demand and that means a better price or you. 
  2. Buyers are serious - Selling is stressful and you don’t want people who aren’t serious about purchasing viewing your home. If a buyer is taking time out of the holiday season, they are motivated and ready to commit. 
  3. The holidays are more emotional - Homes look great this time of year with the lights and decorations. Buyers often use emotion instead of logic to make decisions.
Listing your home now can be truly beneficial. I recently worked with a client who wanted to wait to list until the spring, I spread the word through without listing and within the first week we got a contract. They don’t even have to move until February.
