If you’re planning on selling your home you may be wondering if you should list it now or wait until the holidays are over.
In this article, we will answer this question and provide you insight into why December is a great month to sell a home.
Why December Is a Great Month to Sell A Home
There’s no doubt that most people are going to be focused on celebrating Christmas and then New Years because the world is essentially “gearing up” to celebrate both holidays.
Most sellers may choose to wait until January to list their homes but the reality is that even though the holidays are in full swing, there are always buyers out there.
Who is searching for homes for sale in SoCal during the holidays? There are a wide variety of buyers out there from house flippers, institutional buyers, to new people who moving to SoCal for their jobs and need to find homes fast.
It’s also possible that there will be people on vacation in SoCal during the holidays who will be thinking about buying a home here so that they can live the California dream, or be closer to their family members.
As a seller, you can take advantage of buyer demand during the holidays by listing your home for sale in December while other homeowners may choose to wait until January of next year to list their homes.
What If You Want to Wait Until January To List Your Home?
Let’s say that you want to sell your home in January though. December is still a great time to start the process of getting your home ready for sale. This process includes: decluttering, repairs, and pre-marketing so that once January comes, we can launch the sales process, hit the ground running, and take advantage of the traditional increase in buyer activity that comes after the holidays.
