Many Sellers believe that the market slows down during this time of the year, and thus hesitate to put their homes on the market during the holiday season. The reality is that now is an excellent time to sell!
Here are 7 great reasons why waiting until next year can cost you time and money.
Here are SEVEN great reasons NOT to wait:
1. Lower inventory
It is true that seasonally we see dips in homes that are available for sale. Fewer homes, means more buyers will see yours...
2. The buyers that are out, are ready!
During the holidays, many hunker down with family. Those buyers that are out looking at homes, are ready to make a deal!
3. Beat the spring glut...
Many sellers wait until after the new years or spring to sell... And guess what, many think the same thing usually at the same time. We can see inventory rain 20%-30% in a matter of weeks. More homes on the market, may mean less negotiating power for buyers.
4. Your home shines for the Holidays.
The Christmas trees, the potpourri in the air, the pies... Yes, your home can shine with the magical spirit of the Holidays, and help your buyer want to spend their next Holiday there too!
5. Sell, and stay through the Holidays
You can always sell, and rent back from the new owners. This will give you time to find your next home and not feel rushed.
6. If you sell during the holidays, you will be ready to buy "non-contingent" on your next home... So while everyone is wanting to sell, you will be ready to buy.
7. Capture the relocating buyer.
Many buyers are here feeling out the area, to see if they want to make the move. Your home could be their choice, if it is available while they are in town.
