The Christmas holidays are usually looked at as a slower time in the real estate market. Homeowners are too busy with the holidays to even consider getting their home on the market. If you need to sell due to a relocation of job or other reasons and need to move to your next home by the new year, then using this down time opportunity in the market to your advantage. Here are MY 5 REASONS WHY YOU CAN SELL DURING THE HOLIDAYS.
5. GET A HEAD START ON THE MARKET.
Inventory is lower during the holiday season, so you have less competition. The odds of you selling your home are greater in less than 30 days (if properly priced and stage).
4. Neighborhood will help you sell your home!
The neighborhood will be decorated for the holiday season. Buyers always drive through the neighborhood to see the dynamics at different times. Since daylight savings time, the days are shorter and gets darker sooner so holiday lights will be lighting up the neighborhood. The decorated neighborhood will help sell your home.
3. Christmas Camo!
Buyers will see the great decorations of your home instead of the slight imperfections. Your holiday decorations will enhance the appearance of your home. Unless showing new home construction, selling a vacant home can be sometimes harder to sell if not properly cleaned and staged for showing.
2. Window shopping Buyers!
Relocating buyers will use their holiday vacation days to visit and house shop prior to moving. The holidays maybe the only time the entire family can go and visit since no school. Get your home be on top of their wish list by the first of the year when then are ready to make an offer on a home!
1. Clean for the HOLIDAYS!
Your home will be cleaned and ready for the holiday season for family visiting and parties. Use that clean home to your advantage by showing it to potential buyers. Getting it professionally cleaned at the beginning and maintaining it during the season.
