The holidays are a busy season full of shopping, travel, cooking and more. The last thing you probably want to do is put your home on the market. But if you’re thinking of selling, the holidays are a good time to do it. Here’s why:
- Less competition. Most people think combining the holidays with selling a home is too much work, so they’re not listing their home for sale, meaning less competition for you.
- Holiday home shoppers are ready to buy. The season is busy for them too, and yet if they’re out looking for a home, they’re serious about buying.
- Your home and neighborhood looks festive and inviting. If you and your neighbors decorate for the holidays, the area will look pretty and appealing to buyers.
- Time off to view homes. During the holidays, many people take time off of work, giving them time to view homes for sale. It also means you have time off to keep the home clean and ready for showings.
