Real Estate Agent with Gaffs Realty


Serious home buyers are looking at homes no matter what month of year it is, so by keeping your home on the market during the holidays, this gives you a huge advantage.

The largest objection sellers have is, keeping their home on the market during the holidays. Many sellHoliday Homesers choose to take their home off the market during the holidays, due to the inconvenience of keeping the home in showing condition every day, as this can be difficult during the holiday season. This is a busy time of year with making cookies, hosting dinner parties, shopping and wrapping etc.


Serious buyers are looking at homes no matter what the calendar month says, so keeping your home on the market during the holidays gives you a huge advantage.

Here is Palm Beach County, High Season begins in the month of December, and there are numerous visitors and snowbirds arriving in town. Whether they are visiting parents, children, extended family and friends, or arriving for the winter stay, some are seriously considering relocating or purchasing that 2nd home. The pool of serious buyers just got larger!

Christmas TreeSo, for you serious sellers, it is in your best interest to always allow a showing even if the exact time is inconvenient. You are better off to allow the showing than rejecting that showing. You may be closing the door to a serious potential sale. So keep in mind, most serious buyers do not take a vacation from looking  during the holiday season.

This is a great time for serious buyers to make that purchase. Don't let "your" home experience a missed viewing due to the holiday season. 

Happy Holidays!

Great reminders!  I talked two of my clients into keeping their homes on the market and am bringing on a new one for this very reason.
