10 Reasons to List Your Home During the Holidays

Many people are hesitant to try and sell their homes during the holidays since you typically hear that spring and summer are the best times to list. However, there are many good reasons (at least ten in my opinion) to list now!

  1. Many times people looking for a home the Holidays are more serious buyers!
  2. There are fewer houses listed during the Holidays and less competition means more money for you!
  3. The supply of listings will increase in January, therefore more supply equals less demand for your particular home.
  4. Houses show better when dressed up for the Holidays!
  5. Buyers are more emotional during the Holidays, so they are more likely to pay closer to the listing price.
  6. Buyers have more time to look for a home during the Holidays than they do during a regular work week!
  7. Some people must buy before the end of the year for tax reasons!
  8. January is traditionally the month for employees to begin new jobs. Since transferees cannot wait until Spring to buy, you must be on the market now to capture that market!
  9. You have the option to restrict showings during the six or seven days during the Holidays when you have family time scheduled.
  10. By selling now, you may have an opportunity to be a non-contingent buyer during the Spring, when many more houses are on the market for less money. This will allow you to sell high and buy low!
