Contrary to popular belief, now is a great time to sell your home! 

Here are some reasons why you should sell your home during the Holidays’!

1.       Your home will show as a new listing on the multiple listing services, catching more viewers and benefiting with fresh marketing!

2.       During the holiday season, the inventory of homes is at its lowest in the year!

3.       Getting your home sold during the holidays doesn't mean packing up and moving in the middle of things, you can wait and close escrow and move more conveniently after the New Year
4.       Many sellers withdraw their homes from the market to wait for spring, so there is less competition for buyers.

5.       Having sold your home during the winter, you have the opportunity to buy during the spring when many more homes will be on the market.

6.       Homes feel more inviting when there are holiday decorations and fragrances, it’s more appealing to a buyer to show your home when it’s dressed up for the Holidays.

7.       Lots of buyers need to purchase a home before the year ends for tax purposes.

8.       There will be many visitors and relatives in your area from out of town and these are potential buyers.

9.       Need not to worry about showing your home in the middle of a family event, you can restrict showings whenever you want and be open for business when you aren't hosting or attending a family event elsewhere.

10.   It’s true, you may have fewer showings total than any other time of the year but the showings you do have will be with more motivated and serious buyers.

11.   Corporate transfers pick up toward the end of the year and you need to be available for these serious buyers to purchase your home.

12.   Now is a great time for buyers to make the move since interest rates are at a thirty year low and rates are likely to increase next year!
