11 Reasons to List During the Holidays

 11 Reasons to List During the Holidays

1. People who look for a home during the Holidyas are more serious buyers.
2. Serious buyers have fewer houses to choose from during the Holidays and less         competition means more money for you.
3. Since the supply of listings will dramitically increase in January, there will be less demand for your particular home! Less demand means less money!
4. Houses show better when decorated for the Holidays.
5. Buyers are more emotional during the Holidays, so they are more likely to pay your price.
6. Buyers have more time to look for a home during the Holidays than they do during the work week.
7. Some people must buy before the end of the year for tax reasons.
8. Januray is traditionally the month for employees to begin new jobs. Since transferees cannot wait until spring to buy, you must be on the market now to capture the market.
9. You can still be on the market, but you have the option to restrict showings during the six or seven days during the Holidays!
10. You can sell now for more money and we will provide for a delayed closing or extended occupancy until early next year.
11. By selling now, you may have an opportunity to be a non-contingent buyer during the spring, when many more house are on the market for less money! This will allow you to sell high and buy low!
