 The holidays usually seem to be a slow time for home sellers, and the myth is that no one is looking to buy a home during the holidays, so I will just wait until the new year. Therefore most home sellers wait until the new year to list there homes.  Here are 9 reasons why waiting for the new year may result in less money in your pocket and more headache.

1. While there may be fewer buyers out there, people that are looking for a home during the holidays are buyers and ready to buy.

2. There are fewer homes for buyers to look at during the holidays, which mean there is less competition for you as a seller. Less competition = more money.

3. After the holidays, the supply of listings increases substantially, which lowers the demand for your home. More competition = less money.

4. Your home shows better when decorated for the holidays.

5. Many buyers have more time to look for property during the holidays. Typically more time off from work. Partners can look together.

6. For those sellers concerned about showing during holidays, we will restrict the showings on your home to the times you want it shown. You will remain in control.

7. You can sell now for more money and not have to physically move until January or February as opposed to getting the process started later. Lost in other listings, it could take longer to sell.

8. Buyers think there is less competition from other buyers during the holidays, so they wait for the holiday season.

9. Relocation buyers are still out there. Companies not concerned about holiday time and if they have kids they want to get them into school after the holidays.

To sell in a market like ours, we must be counter-intuitive. If every seller waits for the new year, your home will get lost in the crowd.  Give it the opportunity to shine Today.  Call Now for more information on the value of your home or the current activity in your neighborhood!!
