Advantages of Selling Your Home at the Holidays


While it’s commonly known that the house buying season ramps up every year in the spring time, the often over-looked holiday months of November through January can actually have an advantage for home sellers. Buyers are often much more serious and there is less competition with fewer homes actively on the market. So if you’re thinking about selling a home in the holidays, here our top reasons why it’s a good thing.

1. Less Competition

Many people are in the same thinking that the holidays aren’t a good time to sell, which is great for you. Buyers are still looking so you won’t have to compete with so many other homes to catch a buyer’s attention.  You can keep their interest by keeping your home show ready and pricing it right. Less competition also means you can possibly sell your home even faster and for more money.

2. Motivated Buyers

The holidays are busy for everyone so buyers at this time of year are often much more motivated and serious. There are several reasons they could be looking – trying to move for tax reasons, they’re relocating or they’ve continued to lose out on homes in this competitive market. Stay attractive to them by offering a flexible showing schedule and be willing to negotiate contract terms. Holiday buyers aren’t just house shopping so you’ll want to work with them.

3. Your Home Looks Great

The holidays often bring out the warmth and coziness of a home. While not overdecorating, staging your home right with tasteful decorations can enhance your home’s best features and allow potential buyers to envision themselves celebrating the holidays in your home.
