10 Great Reasons to List Your Home During the Holidays

Listing Your Home During the Holiday Season

  1. Home buyers looking during the holidays are more serious buyers.
  2. Serious buyers have fewer houses to choose from during the holidays, so you have less competition.
  3. Houses "show better" when decorated for the holidays.
  4. Buyers might feel an emotional connection to your home during the holidays.
  5. Buyers have more time to look for a home during holidays.
  6. Many people want to buy before the end of the year for tax reasons.
  7. January is traditionally the month for transfers. They can't wait until Spring to buy.
  8. You can still restrict showings during your holiday family gatherings.
  9. You can sell now, but specify a delayed closing or extended occupancy until the new year if needed.
  10. By selling now you have an opportunity to buy during the Spring when many houses are on the market.

By listing now, you have fewer actual showings but more qualified and motivated buyers. You also have less competition resulting in a quicker sale and a better price for you.
