10 Reasons to List Your Home During the Holiday Season vs. Waiting Until January!

Majestic Newly Constructed Home

  1. While there may be less buyers out there, people who look for a home during the holiday season are serious…they are ready to buy!
  2. There are fewer homes for buyers to look at during the holidays which means less competition for you…less competition equals more money.
  3.  After the holidays the supply of listings increases substantially, which lowers the demand for your home…more competition equals less money!
  4. Your home shows better when decorated for the holidays!
  5. Many buyers have more time to look for property during the holidays (as opposed to a normal work week).
  6. Corporate transferees are looking to relocate now and can’t wait until spring because January is traditionally the biggest transfer month.
  7. You can sell now for more money and not have to physically move until January or February…as opposed to just starting the whole process at that time.
  8. Pent up demand on both buyer and seller sides, sellers have been waiting for a better time and buyers have been waiting for the right home.
  9. You may have fewer actual showings, but more qualified and motivated buyers.
  10. Mortgage interest rates are still low, giving the buyer more financing options.
