5 Reasons to Sell During the Holidays
The thought of selling your house during the holidays seems far-fetched! Between decking your halls and planning festivities with your loved ones, you might be thinking “is it worth it to try and sell my house now?” Contrary to popular belief, the holiday season is an ideal time to sell. All snow flurries aside, there are many benefits to selling your home during the holidays! Here are the top 5 benefits:
1. Less Competition
Most sellers believe that listing their house during the holidays is an exercise in futility but the fact is buyers are out there! There are all sorts of reasons why buyers might be shopping for a house during this time of year and you don’t want to miss out on such a motivated group of buyers. Being ahead of the pack and choosing to list during the holidays means you are going to get a lot of showings on your house as you are likely to face less competition from other home sellers.
2. Motivated buyers
There are quite a lot of motivated buyers looking for homes during the holiday seasons. The types of buyers include people who want to get their kids into a particular school system at the start of new year, people who are required to relocate for work, OR people who want to start the new year off in the home of their dreams.
3. Creative Staging
The holiday season allows you to get really creative with staging your home. No other time of year would it be okay to put up decorations and Christmas trees. You have a unique opportunity to create a homey feeling within your home that will be sure to incite positive feelings among potential buyers about your home.
4. Buyers have time on their hands
It’s safe to say that most buyers looking to purchase a new home during holiday season probably have time off from work or are using their long holiday to attend showings. They are really in a space where they can dedicate their time and energy to looking for a house. As a seller, you will know these folks are serious about buying your house, if they are using their vacation time to visit your house and consider a purchase.
5. Holiday specials
