Thanksgiving and Christmas are seen as the two most celebrated Holidays during the year, and they are here once again! If you have been thinking of selling your home this year and wondered if it was too late to sell for top dollar, think again! It is actually one of the best times and here are 11 reasons why!
1. Serious Buyers Want Your Home!
People that are looking to buy a home during this time of the year are more serious buyers! There are two major reasons behind this: most buyers are trying move into their new home to celebrate the holidays, or they are trying to start off the new year in a new place to call home.
2. Fewer Sellers Make Buyers Pay More!
Serious buyers have a smaller selection of homes to choose from since there are fewer sellers during the holidays. With a smaller selection of houses on the market for buyers to choose from, the chances of your home being purchased quickly and closer to the price you want is greater!
3. A Saturated Sellers Market in the New Year Decreases Demand!
Once the holidays are over, the amount of sellers will increase dramatically in January, meaning that there will be less demand for your particular home and therefore a lower amount your home will sell for!
4. Decorated Homes Are More Appealing!
Many of us love to decorate our homes for the holidays. By listing your home while it is decorated, home buyers get to see how beautiful their home could look like if they were to purchase yours! This increases the appeal of your home without having to do any additional work!
5. Emotional Buyers Will Pay the Price You Want!
Buyers tend to be more emotional when it comes to the holidays, so they are more likely to pay the price you want for your home!
6. Buyers have more Time to Search
With the increase of time off from work, buyers have the chance to search for homes more often during the holidays. This increase in time allows your home to be seen the most during this time of the year!
Some individuals are looking to buy a home before the end of the year due to tax reasons!
8. Buyers Starting New Jobs or Transferring
Many new employees begin their new jobs in January and are searching for homes to be settled into before the start of the new year. This is the perfect time to capture buyers that are transferring jobs!
9. Limit Showings of your Home
Although your house can be listed on the market, you have the option to restrict Real Estate showings during the holidays. This means less stress for you!
10. Sell now and Move out after the Holidays!
If you choose to do so, your house can sell during the holidays for more money in your pocket and your awesome real estate agents at American Real Estate- List & Sell will be able to provide a delayed closing so you can remain in the house until next year!
11. Become a Non-contingent Buyer
By selling your house now, you can potentially be a non-contingent buyer in the spring time. This allows you to buy a property during one of the best times of the year when more houses are on the market and for a lower cost!
