'Tis The Season... To Buy And Sell A Home

Deck the halls and get your home sold. Now is a great time for buyers and sellers.

There's no doubt this is a very hectic time of year. Between wrapping presents, baking goodies, and visiting family, who's thinking about moving? The thing is, now is a great time to sell a home, especially this year as consumers look to take advantage of low interest rates. In general, buyers tend to be more serious and have extra time to look at houses together this time of year.

Benefits of keeping your home listed during the holiday season:

  • First and foremost, your house definitely isn't going to sell if it's not even
    listed. By leaving it on the market, you are likely to attract the motivated
    buyers who tend to house hunt during the holidays.
  • Buck convention. If everyone else takes their home off the market –
    thereby reducing inventory – but you leave yours on, there is a greater
    chance of a buyer viewing and purchasing your home.
  • When tastefully decorated for the holidays, a home is extra inviting.
    During this time of the year, buyers will be able to easily envision their
    own family celebrating in the cozy environs of your home.


For these reasons and more, the holiday season is "prime time" for your home to
be listed.

If you're looking to list your home, or buy a home give me a call. Your neighborhood Realtor®.
