FYI: Selling During the Holiday Season
Updated: Dec 11, 2020
All kinds of buyers shop in all seasons.
As I say in my signature, "Every Day is a Great Day in Real Estate," and it's true. It’s a common misconception that people are too busy with the holidays to think about purchasing a new home. This is evident in the multiple offers we are receiving on our listings. Selling a house during the holiday season has its perks if you properly position your home in the market.
Take advantage of the low inventory as you may be able to command a higher price. Buyers actively shopping for a new home today are likely very motivated. People looking for a new home around Christmas, Hanukkah or New Year’s tend to be serious buyers!
Lastly, buyers looking to purchase homes before the end of the year for tax purposes find Holiday listings ideal.
Selling your home during the holidays will have less competition, more serious buyers, and may even result in a quicker sales process.
How exciting to start the new year in a new home!
