We've been covering that twelve days of Christmas or have we been covering the twelve reasons to sell your house during the holidays? There are many reasons why you should sell your home now vs waiting till spring. Check out the following video clips. Remember, these tips are to help you, the home owner get the most equity possible when you do sell.
This is a recap of 12 reasons why selling your house during the holidays is the best thing you can do
My True Love gave to me.....By selling your house during the holidays you give
yourself the opportunity to buy your new house in a Spring market without
worrying. When there are more houses on the market that will drive prices down
or you will have more competition because the buyers will have more homes to
chose from. By listing now and sell your house during the holidays you are able
to come into that Spring Market as a non-contingent buyer. So, you can sell for
the most now, and if you delay the closing a couple month. Ttypically 45-60
days, but you can go 90 days if the buyer can make it work... you will get the
advantage of less inventory now and higher price and more inventory in 90-120
days and have more leverage for negotiating.
You can sell your house now and ask for a delayed closing or we can ask for an extended possession to take place next year.
When you're on the market during the holidays you can actually restrict your
showings during the five, six or seven days on around the holidays. Rather than
miss a buyer during this time of year, just put a restriction on a few days.
Traditionally, most new jobs start in January. What that means is buyers can't wait till Spring for their transfer. They are going to buy now, and you want ot be on the market for the brand new jobs in January.
There are buyers that buy real estate for Tax Reasons. They have to do something before the end of the year.
The reality is, people just have more time to look at homes during the holidays. They have more time off from work and they have family in town around the holidays. That gives them more time to go out looking at houses.
Buyers are more emotional during the Holiday and that will give you a better chance for them to fall in love with their dream home and that can get you more money for your property.
The truth is homes show better during the Holiday Season. When you have your home decorated and staged for the holidays it just shows better
This is one of my favorite reasons. There is just a lower supply of homes available. Economics 101 teaches us that when there is a low supply, prices go up and because there are less homes to see, and they are planning a move, there is a better chance your house will get picked and they might pay more for it as well.
Because there is a lower supply of homes available, the buyers our looking during the holidays will be more serious buyers.
If they are looking at homes during the Holidays they ARE serious buyers. You will get more serious buyers and not very many (if any) tire kickers and decorating idea-getters.
