10 Reasons to Sell Your House During the Holidays

We’ve entered what is historically the slower time of the year for home buying, but if you’re thinking about selling your house, here are ten reasons why you may not want to wait until Spring:

1. Buyers shopping for homes during the holidays tend to be more serious

2. Serious buyers have fewer houses to choose from during the holidays (especially with the current low inventory in our market), which means less competition

3. Houses decorated for the holidays are more appealing and show better

4. Home purchases are usually driven by emotion, and emotions tend to peak during the holidays

5. Buyers usually have more time to shop during their time-off over the holidays

6. Some buyers are motivated to purchase before year-end for tax reasons

7. Employees transferring need to find a place to live – January is typically the month for them to start a new job

8. You have the ability to restrict showings so they don’t impact your holiday plans

9. You can negotiate a delayed closing or lease back to avoid moving in the middle of a holiday

10. If you sell now and are looking to buy, you could be a non-contingent buyer during peak season, which could help you get your dream house in our current seller’s market
