It is hard to believe we are now in the first week of November and its time to start thinking about the holidays. This is also the time of year when notice many home sellers are thinking about taking their homes off the market. They believe that home buyers are not looking during this time of year. They also believe the best time of year to list your house is in early spring.
I found the below blog from David Beckham, REALTOR® with Century 21 Millennium Realty in Pineville, LA who lists 5 really great reasons why home sellers should keep their homes listed even during the holidays!
I usually hear from many sellers a reluctance to place their home on the market during the holiday season. I would say the biggest concern they have is being inconvenienced during this time of year. Next would be the misconception that buyers do not look during November through December. The truth is that this festive time of year can offer the seller wonderful opportunities. Below are some of the top reasons to have your property on the market during the holidays.
1. Less homes are on the market this time of year which equals less competition for you the seller.
2. Serious buyers look during the holidays.
3. Shoppers do buy homes as Christmas presents.
4. Buyers shopping this time of year will choose a home normally in under 60 Days.
5. Homes are purchased on emotion. Do you think your property decorated for the holidays invokes an emotional response?
