While the weather continues to confuse us about what time of year it really is, one thing for sure is that the holidays are coming up! In the past, the holiday season has often discouraged home sellers from putting their houses on the market. That being said, this year is unlike any we have ever experienced before. We have more time, are spending less money and enjoying more time at home. Because of this, there are actually four solid reasons why the holidays are a perfect time to sell, especially this year.
#1 Motivated Buyers
In any season, the real estate process can at times seem long or tiring. Some people tend to think it's longer and more tiring in the winter, but that is not necessarily true. If anything, buyers are more motivated than ever to lock down a house they love quickly. This is especially true if they want to start the new year in a new house!
#2 Less Competition
At this time of year, there is a historically lower inventory on the market. Whether that be because people think it’s a bad time to sell or they don’t want to maintain the driveway, whatever the reason fewer people on the market means your house will be in the spotlight consistently!
#3 Everything Will Shine
Think about it: What time of year do we put a lot of effort into the interior of our houses? The time of year when our communities put up hundreds of lights? When we have the fireplace, scented candles and non-stop baking going all day? December! With all your usual seasonal activities in full swing, now is the best time for people to visit your house. They will be able to feel its warmth, how bright it is, and how magical it can be.
#4 We Have Time
Considering most winters we find ourselves wrapped up in office gatherings, family festivities and New Year’s Eve party planning, a lot of people chose to avoid selling in the winter. But because this year a lot of those festivities are cancelled or significantly reduced, now is the best time to sell. As compared to other years, you actually have time to make your house perfect.
