Every year at this time, many homeowners decide to wait until after Christmas to put their homes on the market for the first time, while others who already have their homes on the market decide to take them off until after the holidays.
Here are seven great reasons not to wait:
Relocation buyers are out there. Many companies are still hiring throughout the holidays and need their employees in their new positions as soon as possible.
Purchasers who are looking for homes during the holidays are serious buyers and are ready to buy now. ( Just Sold )
You can restrict the opens on your home to the times you want it shown. Our agents will qualify buyers before showing the home and often have been talking to them for awhile.
Homes show better when decorated for the holidays.
There is less competition for you as a seller right now. Stock levels this spring are still low and new sellers will wait.
The desire to own a home doesn’t stop when the holidays come. Buyers who were unable to find their dream home during the busy spring and summer months are still searching!
The supply of listings increases substantially after the holidays. Also, in many parts of the country, new construction will continue to surge reaching new heights in 2018, which will lessen the demand for your house.
Waiting until after the holidays to sell your home probably doesn’t make sense.
Bottom Line - Its always a great time to sell!
