Why Waiting Until After the Christmas Holidays to Sell, Isn’t a Great Decision

At this time every year, many homeowners decide to wait until after the holidays to put their homes on the market for the first time.

Others who already have their homes in the market decide to take them off until after the holidays.

So why try to sell before Christmas or over the holidays?

Here are 7 Great Reasons Not to Wait:

  1. Relocation buyers are out there.
    Families and Companies are not concerned with holiday time and if the buyers have kids, they want them to get into school after the holidays.


  1. Buyer demand is strong.
    There is less housing inventory on the market than is usual at this time of the year. This means there will be lots of buyers competing for your home.


  1. Purchasers that are looking for a home during the holidays are serious buyers and are ready to buy.


  1. You can restrict the showings on your home to the times you want it shown.
    You will remain in control.


  1. Homes show even better when decorated for the Christmas holiday season.


  1. There is less competition for you as a seller right now.
    There are simply not enough homes to satisfy buyer demand.


  1. The supply of listings increases substantially after the holidays.
    Also, in many parts of the state, new construction will continue to surge reaching new heights in 2017, which may lessen the demand for your house.

Whilst it may seem a rush, there’s still time to get on the market and sell before Christmas to take advantage of the current strong buyer interest.

You’ll have a choice of Open Inspections, By-Appointment showings or a combination of both.

This can be tailored to suit you and your family.

You can then start looking for a new home, knowing your place is all sorted.

Bottom Line

Waiting until after the holidays to sell your home will still get it sold. It just means you are then one of many on the market, rather than one of the few.

So, Get on the market Now!

Either sell before Christmas or over the holiday season.

You’ll have the unfair advantage and beat the rush of other sellers competing against you.
