1. Serious Buyers OnlyPeople who are looking for homes during the holidays are more serious buyers
2. Less CompetitionSerious buyers have fewer houses to choose from during the holidays, which is a good thing if you are in the market for selling your home. Less competition means more money for you!
3. Supply of HousesMajority of the time supply for houses normally goes up in January, meaning that if you are trying to sell your home in January there will be less demand. Less demand means less money.
4. DecorationsHouses look better and show better when they are decorated for the holidays.
5. Buyers are EmotionalBuyers are more emotional during the holidays and are more likely to pay your asking price
6. More TimeBuyers have more time during the holidays to look at showings than they do during a working week
7. Tax ReasonsSome people must buy a home before the end of the year for tax reasons.
8. Employment ReasonsJanuary is traditionally the month for employees to begin new jobs. Since some people that are transferring in for a new job cannot wait until Spring, now is the perfect time to capture this market!
9. Be On The MarketYou can still be on the market, but you have the option to restrict showings during the six or seven days during the Holidays!
10. Delayed ClosingYou can sell now for more money and we will provide for a delayed closing or extended occupancy until early next year!
11. Non-Contingent Buyer During SpringBy selling now, you may have an opportunity to be a non-contingent buyer during the Spring, when many more houses are on the market for less money! This will allow you to sell high and buy low!
