Reasons You Should List Your Home in November & December

Every year at this time, many homeowners decide to wait until after the holidays to put their home on the market, many believing that this period is a challenging time to sell. Others who already have their home on the market decide to take it off the market until after the holidays. However, several studies confirm that on overage, homes listed during this time ore more likely to sell more quickly and sell for closer to the asking price. Here are 7 great reasons not to wait:

1. Relocation buyers are out there. Companies are not concerned with holiday time and if the buyers have kids, they want them to get into school after the holidays.

2. Purchasers that are looking for a home during the holidays are serious buyers and are ready to buy. Having remained patient throughout the busy selling season, they're highly motivated and may face their own time constraints.

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 less competition for you as a seller because of misconceptions about selling during the holiday season. Sellers who wait to list their home or pull their home from the market lower the available inventory: buyers have fewer homes to choose from.

6. Conversely the supply of listings increases substantially after the holidays increasing your competition.

7. A house marketed now may lure buyers hoping for year-end tax breaks. They may want to deduct home purchase costs like points, interest, and property taxes.

Waiting until after the holidays to sell your home probably doesn't make sense. If you're interested in selling now, contact us!
