Now is the best time of the year to sell a house, despite what many homeowners think. There are many advantages to selling now rather than waiting for the spring.
Why should you list your house for sale during the holidays? Now is actually the best time of the year to sell your property because interest rates are low and inventory is down once again. More specifically, there are four reasons that I wanted to share:
People looking to buy during the holidays tend to be more serious about buying. I recently held an open house. It was not only jam-packed, but everyone there was already pre-qualified to make an offer on the spot. The spring market is more filled with people who are just curious about the market.
Serious buyers have fewer homes to choose from during the holidays. Less competition means more money for you.
Houses show better when decorated for the holidays. Christmas trees and lights gleaming off of your hardwood floors make a strong emotional connection with buyers. They can see themselves living there and celebrating the holidays with their family.
Some buyers have to move because of job relocation. Companies are hiring and want to get their new employees in before January, so these employees need to buy a house in December.
“Holiday house hunters are more serious buyers."
Now that you know why this is such a great time to sell, let's get your house on the market, get multiple offers, get it sold, and pop some champagne! If you have any questions for me or you're ready to take advantage of the great selling conditions we're seeing, give me a call or send me an email today. I look forward to hearing from you!
