Why You Should List Your Home For Sale During The Holidays
Many people do not want to list their home for sale during the holidays and for good reason. Sometimes trying to sell your home during this busy time can be stressful. But there is very motivating advantage to trying to sell at this time.
The amount of newly listed homes that come on the market is significantly reduced so the competition is also reduced. This works in your favor as far as odds go. For example if you list your home in the summer another 100 homes may be listed in the same area and at the same price as yours giving buyers a multitude of chooses when shopping. In the holiday season there may only be 30 homes listed. Your odds of selling a home just went from 1 in a 100 chance to 1 in 30. This may also have a positive change in the sale price as when supply drops and demand stays steady prices usually increase.
The people that are looking to buy are more likely to be motivated buyers if they are willing to take the time out of their busy lives to home shop. Some may be thinking of the tax advantages prior to the end of the year as well. Others may have just been looking for a long time and just haven't found the one. That means with every showing there is a higher chance of a positive outcome rather than just people that are just curious about what your home looks like.
All things considered the holidays may be a great time to try and sell your home!
