Tradition dictates that spring is the time of year to bring your home to the market to get it sold. With everyone occupied by holiday celebrations, Black Friday isn’t a day that is associated with home showings. However, there are a number of reasons why listing your home for the holidays can actually work in your favor.
With traditionalists listing in the spring, this leaves the winter season lighter in inventory than most times of the year. With less competition on the market, you can be sure qualified buyers aren’t losing your property in the shuffle. A correctly priced and marketed property is guaranteed to attract qualified buyers.
Speaking of qualified buyers, during this time of year, many buyers are out shopping because of transfers or job changes that coincide with the changing calendar year. If someone is using valuable holiday shopping time to purchase a home, you know they are serious. So, even with fewer buyers active, during the holidays, they're highly motivated.
Staging your home for sale during the holiday season is actually simplified. Traditional trees, holiday lights, and lots of red and white accents are easy answers to the question of how to spruce up the home. Peppermint and cinnamon scents through the house make every buyer feel right at home. And the best part is, oftentimes, even your neighbors get in on the action, which can improve the appearance of the entire street.
The holidays are not often thought of as a great time to sell. But with the right approach, a holiday listing will face less competition and encounter more serious buyers, resulting in a quicker sale.
