selling sun lakes home"Should I  list my home for sale during the holidays?"  It's a question I often hear this time of the year and the answer is "it depends".

It depends on how much you'd like to be inconvenienced during the holidays. It depends on whether your ok with strangers coming through your home if you have gifts under a Christmas tree. Let's assume you're ok with all that.  There's one big factor you have to remember when selling a home in Sun Lakes, AZ.

Sun Lakes, AZ as well as all the the other Active Adult Communities in the area are unique in the real estate market.  The busiest home selling and buying season for these communities is in the fall, winter and early spring months due to the influx of visitors to the area.  So, your home is going to have the highest visibility during these times. 

But what about the holidays? The holidays are prime time for potential home buyers to visit the Phoenix area. Many of these visitors don't even know they'll be looking for a home until they get here and fall in love with our Winter weather.   So here's the secret for you...no matter where you live in the Valley...   most home sellers wait until after the holidays to list their homes for sale, so inventory tends to be lower during the holidays than it will be in January-March.  That means there will be less competition for your home!

So the holidays can be one of the BEST times to sell your home ~ But keep that under your hat if you don't want to spoil your advantage!

Excellent advice. Interesting to see that it is the busiest time for you. In Bergen County, NJ, because of the snow, it typically is the slowest. But sellers have the least amount of competition in inventory.
