The top ten reasons to list your home during the holidays.

    One of the most frequent objections given by sellers for not signing a listing agreement is, the Holidays. But Sellers don't have to let the Holidays stand in the way! By understanding these 11 benefits of listing during the Holidays, sellers won't have any objections to listing their home late in the year.

11. By Selling Now, you may have an opportunity to be a non-contingent buyer during the spring, when many more houses are on the market for less money! This will allow you to sell high and buy low!

10. You can sell now for more money and we will provide for a delayed closing or extended occupancy until early next year!

9. Even though your house will be on the market, you still have the option to restrict showings during the six or seven days around the Holidays.

8. January is traditionally the month for employees to begin new jobs. Since transferees cannot wait until spring to buy, you need to be on the market during the Holidays to capture that market!

7. Some people must buy before the end of the year for tax reasons!

6. Buyers have more time to look for a home during the Holidays than during the regular work week!

5. Buyers are more emotional during the Holidays, so they are more likely to pay your price!

4. Houses show better when decorated for the Holidays!

3. Since the Supply of listings will dramatically increase in January, there will be less demand for your particular home! Less demand means less money for you!

2. Serious buyers have fewer houses to choose from during the Holidays and less competition means more money for you!


1. People who look for homes during the holidays are more serious buyers!

People often have a misconception of listing during the Holidays, they are surprised when I say November and December have been my most busiest time of the year for 4 years straight. Enjoy this time with your family. Be sure and take them to see the local parade. Keller Williams Realty is a proud sponsor of the Hendersonville Parade.

I love your take on the holidays. You're the first person to turn the conventional wisdom upside down and make it a benefit rather than a chore. Very well done.
