Here are 10 Great Reasons Why Sellers Should List During the Holidays

Here are 10 great reasons why sellers should list during the Holidays …

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

4.     Houses show better when decorated for the Holidays.

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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.

 

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

Hi Kristin, A home really looks like a home especially during the holidays. But be sure those decorations are tasteful and understated for the best response. Certainly no argument on your list. Even a couple I hadn't thought of before.

Hi William,

Most love the holidays and get so emotional and think of their first holiday in their new house; decorating the tree, hanging stockings, wreath on the front door and the meal. Such excitement for the buyers.

Hi Barbara-Jo,

I have one that closed this week and they are talking about their first Thanksgiving at their new house. Their 8 year old daughter is so excited so I can totally understand how exciting it will be for your closing just before Christmas with a tree up and waiting for Santa. What a lovely Christmas for your clients.

PS: Love the new hairdo and your picture is terrific.

Kristen,

 It seems everyone is in the Holiday mode, I have read many blogs about the Holidays and posted one myself!

This makes so much sense, but some agents just don't understand or just don't want to be bothered themselves during the holidays.  I'll be working that much harder

Hi Yolanda,

I have two listings coming up this week so I hope they will sell and close by end of the year. They are both empty so I might put a couple of stockings on the fireplace to make it festive.

Hi Raymond,

Yes we will work hard and have a good year as the holidays are important but so are our clients so business can come first and we can always take off on Thanksgiving Day.
