Thanksgiving and the holiday season are here—are you thinking about selling your home during the holidays? Here’s what you need to know!
Realtor.com has a good rundown of some key points to look out for when selling your home during the Holidays. First of all it’s important to understand why you might want to chose the holiday season for putting your home on the market. The number one reason is supply and demand: many home sellers only want to sell around the start of a new school year or want to avoid dealing with the sales process during the holiday time frame. That means that your house can become a prime property in a market with far less competition than during the busy summer months!
So what do you need to know to sell your home during the holidays? The most important thing to keep in mind is that your buyers are looking for a holiday atmosphere, and you can help provide it. Make sure your home is tastefully decorated for the holidays—don’t go overboard, but also don’t skimp on lights that help brighten up your home.
You could even throw a holiday part and use it as a chance to showcase your home to the neighborhood. Plus, prepping some cookies and other holiday fare gives your home that holiday smell many buyers might be craving.
And while the weather outside might indeed be frightful you can use that to your advantage: show off the coziness of your home and take advantage of the fact that potential buyers might be in no hurry to leave.
As you can see, right now could be the perfect time to sell your home — make sure to get in touch with me for more tips & suggestions!
