Selling your home during the holidays can be seen as an added hassle to the hustle and bustle, but it may provide the best opportunity if your Christmas wish is to sell! The holiday season is a time many sellers consider taking their home off the market due to a lower number of buyers and the inconvenience of showings, but your agent can’t sell your house if it’s not on the market. In fact, for properties such as hard to sell homes and vacation rentals, the holiday reduced inventory may be your best probability of the year to sell.
TO SELL OR NOT TO SELL DURING THE HOLIDAYS?
Reduced inventory during the holidays means your home has a better chance of being “the prettiest girl at the dance” resulting in more dates for showings. Come Spring, newly listed properties will flood the market and buyers will have a lot of choices and may never see your house.
Older homes that have drawbacks such as location or need updating have a much better opportunity to be seen and sold! Visiting friends and family during the holidays are a fresh new set of buyers, but they can’t consider buying your home if they don’t know it’s for sale.
If selling your home is on your Wish List, take advantage of the good fortune that only the holiday season offers.
