Monday Real Estate Market Myth: Selling Your Home During the Holidays

Myth: The worst time to sell your home is during the Holiday season.

False: Waiting to sell your home after the Holidays, a seller may be volunteering to take a lower price for their home. Why?…Because everyone is thinking the same thing!  Many sellers do not want to have the holiday stress on top of the standard stress of selling their home, which is understandable.  However after the new year hits there is a flood of homes available, the buyers now have more properties to chose from and more negotiating power.

Here are six reasons to list your home during the Holiday:

  1. Buyers are more serious, as they would be baking or shopping if they did not HAVE to move
  2. Fewer homes are available which favors your home value
  3. Holiday decorated homes are more attractive and welcoming as buyers can visualize their personal decor
  4. Interest rates are low
  5. People need a tax write-off before the new year
  6. Some buyers get homes as gift

 Do not miss this special opportunity and list your home today rather than waiting for the “After Christmas Home Sale!”
