Can I Expect to Sell Over the Holidays?


Should you list your home this holiday season?

With the Holidays right around the corner, you may be wondering how they will affect your ability to sell your home. In the past, real estate experts would advise waiting until after all the chaos of the holidays to list your home. However, with today’s modern conveniences, homebuyers can continue to shop around in between holiday traveling, shopping, and so on. This is all to say that home buying can now take place year-round. Here are some of the reasons why it’s worth it to list your home this winter.

Competition is Less Serious

As previously mentioned, conventional wisdom is that you should not attempt to sell between Thanksgiving and Valentines Day. As many homeowners buy into this idea, there tend to be fewer properties on the market during the winter months. If you choose to list your home during the holidays, you will enjoy the luxury of being one of the few properties on the market. Buyers who have been looking around will immediately show interest in a new property and, because the options are limited, you will have an increased chance of selling quickly at the price point you want.

It’s a Good Time to Revamp Your Selling Strategy

If your home has already been on the market for a couple of months, then the holiday season offers a prime opportunity to revamp your selling strategy. If your home hasn’t sold, it’s likely because your listing price is too high or because there are some issues with how your home shows. Oftentimes, even the reduced competition that sellers experience during the holiday season will not entice buyers to look past these problems. This is why you should now take buyer-criticisms into account and either reduce your home’s price point, or finally address your property’s major issues. Motivated buyers in your area will see your attempts to change and recognize that you are serious about selling. This will spark new interest in your home that could have you closing before the end of the year.

These are some of the reasons why selling during the holiday season is not a losing proposition. Want another way to help your home sale go as smoothly as possible this holiday season?
