Serious buyers aren’t putting their plans on hold during the holidays, so why postpone your plans?
If you’re ready to sell your home, but are wondering whether you should hold off until after the new year, think again. Serious buyers want to move forward, regardless of the season, so why postpone your plans?
Here are a few reasons to list your property during the holiday season:
Lower inventory. Traditionally, housing inventory is leaner during the holidays, so you’ll face less competition from other sellers, making your home stand out and attract more attention.
Motivated buyers. House hunters this time of year are often highly motivated because they might be starting or transferring to a new job in January, which means you could have a better chance of getting a solid offer. These buyers may also be motivated to close quickly so their kids can get settled in their new school after the break.
Faster closings. With the end of the year approaching, everyone involved in the transaction is eager to wrap up the closing process as soon as possible.
Selling your home during the holidays gives you a chance to create a cozy, cheerful and inviting environment, but if you’re decking the halls, keep it simple and tasteful. Buyers need to be able to see the space and get a sense of how it might work for them the rest of the year, so aim for minimalist decorations that aren’t distracting.
Don’t miss out on a fantastic opportunity to list your property this holiday season and find a serious buyer who may be ready to offer a good price and close quickly.
