Add a new home as one of your wrapped presents under your Christmas tree!
Most often folks put their homes on the market during the Spring or Summer. But we know that you are not like other folks! Not often enough are homes sold during a pivotal time of the year… the holidays. Primarily this is because it is the season of giving and there are many festive traditions to take part in. However, if you are seriously looking to sell your home, we recommend doing it now.
Why you might ask? Because, if you are serious about selling, so are the buyers. Typically there is a lot of action happening toward the end of the year preparing for the new year. Whether that be a job transfer requiring the purchase of a new home or perhaps it is trying to get a tax write-off in the calendar year, there are an array of reasons but most of these reasons are linked to the fact that these buyers are prepared and ready. Additionally, during this time of year there is less competition. Inventory for available homes for sale is much less than other months. This helps to make it a stronger seller’s market.
Lastly, you have to sell your home during the holidays because it is the most wonderful time of the year and you can make it festive from ceiling to floor. It is a good time of year to decorate and make your home cozy and welcoming for a buyer!
Merry Christmas and may your 2019 bring you joy in a new home!
