The holiday season is approaching, which means life is about to get stressful and hectic. However, if you are looking to sell your home, this could be the perfect time. There are many homeowners that decide to wait until after the holidays to put their house on the market and many who take their house off the market until after the holidays. Contrary to popular belief, waiting until after the holidays to sell your home is not always the best idea. Below are 5 reasons why you shouldn’t wait.
1-The supply of listings in the new year substantially increase (including new construction) which could cause the demand for your house to lower.
2- Relocation Buyers- Many companies hire throughout the holidays, which means they will need to relocate as soon as possible.
3- Holiday decorations- Houses look beautiful with christmas decorations and they make the house show beautifully!
4- Serious Buyers- Most people looking to purchase during the holidays are serious buyers which means they are ready to buy and move as soon as possible
5- Minimal competition- Inventory is traditionally slow during this time of the year. Below shows inventory as compared to the same time last year:
