7 Reasons to List Your House For Sale This Holiday Season

7 Reasons to List Your House for Sale This Holiday Season | MyKCM

Every year at this time there are many homeowners who decide to wait until after the holidays to list their homes for the first time, while others who already have their homes on the market decide to take them off until after the holidays.

Here are seven great reasons not to wait:

  1. Relocation buyers are out there. Many companies are still hiring throughout the holidays and need their new employees in their new positions as soon as possible.
  2. Purchasers who are looking for homes during the holidays are serious buyers and are ready to buy now.
  3. You can restrict the showings on your home to the times you want it shown. You will remain in control.
  4. Homes show better when decorated for the holidays.
  5. There is minimal competition for you as a seller right now. Inventory of homes for sale traditionally slows in the late fall, early winter. Let’s take a look at listing inventory as compared to the same time last year:

  1. The desire to own a home doesn’t stop when the holidays come. Buyers who were unable to find their dream homes during the busy spring and summer months are still searching!
  2. The supply of listings increases substantially after the holidays. Also, in many parts of the country, new construction will continue to surge and reach new heights which will lessen the demand for your house in 2019.

Bottom Line 

Waiting until after the holidays to sell your Omaha home probably doesn’t make sense.

Good points The Trumm Team Omaha Homes for Sale, Real Estate. Also in Arizona we have a lot of winter visitors and tourists considering moving to the sunny desert climes.

So true. I've got buyers who want to buy but the inventory decreases this time of year. A funny story about my personal home sales. We listed our first home in August and had a showing during the Christmas holiday while we were making Christmas cookies. My second house that we sold got a contract on December 7. Just goes to show that people look and buy this time of year.

Great advice and since we have winter nearly six months out of the year, it's always a great time to buy or sell here in Minnesota!
