The Pros & Cons of Selling During the Holidays

Real Estate Agent with Tupper's Team - Re/Max Alliance Evergreen

With all the other things on people's minds between now and New Year's eve, you may be wondering if now is a good time to be on the market.  Not only are potential buyers busy with holiday parties and events, but your own sanity will surely be strained by trying to perpare for showings in the midst of seasonal obligations.  Should you decorate your home for the holidays?  Or should you leave it generic and forego some of the fun in favor of marketing priorities?
Your home is definitely not going to sell if it's off the market.  Since many sellers call it quits during the holidays, there is less competition if you stay on the market.  And buyers who go to the trouble to look for a home at this time of year are generally serious and not just 'looky-lou's'.
It's your choice.  If you are in no rush to sell and want to take a break, you can take this time to freshen, de-clutter and make small repairs so you can reintroduce your home with a splash after the holidays.  Also, if your home has been on the market for some time and you take it out of the MLS for at least 31 days, the 'days on market' counter resets to zero, thereby removing a potential stigma.
If you do remain on the market, make sure your home is priced realistically and shows well--with or without decorations.  If you'd like more tips on selling over the holidays, please call.
