Why list your property during the "Quiet" Holidays

Back to Blog
  1. 1.    Holiday house hunters are typically serious home buyers, they aren’t going to be looking during the holiday season unless they really want/need to buy.
  2. 2.    Your home will likely feel very homey during this season (as long as you don’t go Clark Griswald on the neighborhood).
  3. 3.    Showing may actually be easier than you think if you are planning on spending any time away visiting others during the holidays…your home becomes a “go and show” when you are out of town and is always show ready.
  4. 4.    Many of your neighbors will be having family and friends over for parties and such…if they love the neighborhood and see your for sale sign…you might just get some interested buyers.
  5. 5.    Let’s not kid…your house will smell amazing with all the pumpkin pies, sugar cookies, and breads you will be making
  6. 6.    Lots of people get Christmas bonuses and some will likely plan to use theirs as a down payment…get those folks interested now, while they have the money!
  7. 7.    You don’t have to worry about any yard maintenance or up keep because your yard is likely dead, your leaves are already raked and flowers won’t be blooming for a while.
  8.  8.    You can always ask Santa for a ready, willing and able buyer.
  9. 9.    People are generally happy during the holiday season, happy people make happy home buyers.
  10. 10.  The majority of folks will think this is a bad time to sell a home so they will take their homes off the market or wait to put them on the market….this means you will have much less competition.
