If you are thinking about waiting to sell your home until after the holidays…

…you are leaving money on the table.

Here is why:

  1. 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! Your home will also not be competing with the homes owned by those who wait.
  2. You can sell now for more money and we can stipulate a delayed closing or continued occupancy into the new year.
  3. Even though your house will be on the market, we can restrict showings during family events.
  4. January is one of the biggest months for folks to start a now job. Since transfers often won’t wait until Spring to buy, you need to be on the market during the Holidays if you want to be seen by those buyers.
  5. TAXES! Some buyers need to close before the end of the year to avoid paying taxes.
  6. Buyers have more time to look for a home during the Holidays. It isn’t just gift shopping that happens with time off.
  7. Houses show very well when decorated for the Holidays.
  8. The supply of listings will dramatically increase in January, so there will be less demand. Less demand means less money for you if you wait.
  9. Serious buyers have fewer houses to choose from during the Holidays and less competition means more money for you.
  10. The buyers who look for homes during the Holidays are generally more serious.
