Ever heard that spring and summer are the best times to sell your home? Well, it’s just not true! Don’t get us wrong, the warmer months before school starts back up are a very popular time to sell, but we want to debunk an age old myth that “your home won’t sell during the holidays.” There are some great advantages and reasons to sell your home during the holidays and Holt Realty Partners will be there every step of the way to get it done!
- Less Competition: Because most people think the holidays are the worst time to sell, there are not a lot of homes are on the market. This works to your advantage. Less inventory leads to a seller’s market and a faster turnaround time. Let’s get the sign in the yard!
- Motivated Buyers: People coming to look at your home during the busy holiday season are very serious about needing to purchase a home. They don’t usually have time to wait around until their dream home comes on the market. And serious buyers means a quicker sale for you!
- Your House Looks Pretty and Warm: Since it is the holiday season, you might have decorated. While we don’t recommend overdoing it and putting a 50 foot blow-up snowman in your front yard, twinkle lights and a tree can really make a home feel warm and inviting. It helps potential buyers imagine making memories during the holidays in your home.
- Taxes: Most people don’t buy a house just for the tax break, but this is yet another reason why selling during the holidays works to your advantage. Rather than waiting until January, a buyer may want to buy quickly to be able to write it off on his/her taxes for the year.
Last, but not least – hire us! We are very confident we can get your home sold any time of the year and look forward to working with you!
