11 Reasons To Sell Your House During The Holidays


11.) By selling now, you may have the opportunity to be a non-contingent buyer in the spring, when many more homes are on the market for less money. This allows you to sell high and buy low!


10.) You can sell now for more money and we can negotiate for an extended closing or extended occupancy until early next year.


9.) Even though your house will be on the market, you still have the ability to limit showings during the six or seven days around the Holidays.


8.) January is traditionally the month for employees to start new jobs. Since transferees cannot wait until Spring to buy, you need to be on the market now to capture that market.


7.) Some people must buy before the end of the year for tax reasons.


6.) Buyers have more time to look for a home during the Holidays than they do during a normal work week.


5.) Buyers are more emotional during the Holidays so they are more likely to pay your price.


4.) Houses show better when decorated for the Holidays!


3.) Since the supply of listings will dramatically increase in January, there will be less demand and more competition for your particular home. Less demand means less money for you!


2.) Serious buyers have less homes to choose from during the Holidays, and less competition means more money for you!


And the number one reason to sell your house during the Holidays is...

1.) People who look for homes during the Holidays are more serious buyers!
