Top 10 Reasons To List Your Home Before The End Of The Year

One of the biggest myths in real estate is that winter isn’t a good time to sell your home. We’ve compiled a list of reasons why it is the perfect time to sell!

  1. Buyers who are looking during the holiday season and winter months are serious and ready to make an offer.
  2. There are fewer houses on the market so buyers have less houses to choose from and sellers have less competition.
  3. Since the supply of listings will increase in the spring, there will less demand for your home.
  4. Homes are usually beautifully decorated for the holiday season. With lights and festive colors, homes and neighborhoods are perfectly ‘show ready’ with little extra effort!
  5. Buyers can make an emotional attachment to your home during the holidays.
  6. Buyers have more time off work during the holidays then during a regular work week.
  7. Sometimes buyers have a financial motivation to buy before the end of the year for taxes or other financial purposes.
  8. Many company job tranfers start in January so transferees need to buy now.
  9. You can sell now but negotiate to close after the new year.
  10. If you sell now, you can buy as a non-contingent buyer this spring!

If you or anyone else you know is debating about selling now versus later in 2018, let us know. We’d love to help determine a plan that will help meet your or their goals and provide five star customer service.
