Don’t be afraid if you are selling your home as the holiday rush coming in. There are some advantages of putting your home on the market during this season.
There are some challenges in selling your property during Christmas and New year as many realtors take a break and people are so excited about having a long vacation, parties and presents.
But if you find yourself selling your home during this season don’t be despair because at some point, it can be a good thing for you.
- MORE TIME TO SCOUT AND VIEW PROPERTIES – The normal work schedule would be very difficult for some other people finding time on viewing new properties. Although it’s a busy season of the year, buyers have a lot of their time looking for properties and scheduling their viewing.
- LESS COMPETITION – As we mention earlier a lot of realtors take a break during this season to focus on their family and unwind. Selling at the height of Spring and Autumn means you’ll need to work hard to stand out from the crowd while during Christmas and New Year there are less properties in the market, meaning 100% motivated buyers will have fewer options on properties to tempt them. Make the most out of it, think that you are one of a special few in the market.
- PEOPLE ARE RELAX AND HAPPY – When less stress from work and errands to accomplish, people are generally relaxed and happy. When a buyer feels that they are in a better mood to negotiate and act. It would be easier for both the seller and the buyer to talk about the price. Some other people think that as the New Year will come, it will be the best time for them to make a change and move to a better place.
So if you think it’s not the right time for you, think twice.
May Santa delivers the perfect buyer for you!
