The Art of Real Estate: Give Yourself the Gift of “Home”

It’s actually a myth that the real estate market slows or even stops in December. I’m here to assure you that the holidays are an excellent time to sell your home!

More Serious Buyers
People who are looking to buy a home during the holidays are serious about finding the perfect match. There may be fewer of these folks out there in general, but the ones who are looking are ready & wanting to buy!

Lower Supply
Typically, there are fewer homes for buyers to look at around the holiday season, which means there’s less competition & those buyers have your full attention! When the holiday season ends and the new year begins, the supply of homes typically rises, yet another reason to list now!

Holiday Decor
The holidays tend to bring out the best in a home, when it’s all decorated and dressed to the nines! Your home will show beautifully, decked out in wreaths, red bows, and white lights! I particularly love the winter scents of pine, cinnamon and the toasty wood burning fireplace. Plus, the holidays can provide that emotional connection to a home that will help a buyer feel more attached and pay your asking price.

More Time
While your first instinct might be that people are too busy during the holidays to look at homes, think again! Many buyers may have less demanding schedules during the holiday season, or time off during Christmas as opposed to a normal work week. Especially the case for relocation buyers… one of the best opportunities for a seller.

Move in the Spring
You can sell during this prime holiday time, but still not have to worry about moving until after the new year & into spring. You can even negotiate a longer closing period or an extended use & occupancy if that best suits your needs!

Capture the Relocating Buyer
January is often a time when employees begin new jobs. Oftentimes, when someone is transferred to a new position, they need a home, and they need it ASAP! This means they can’t necessarily wait to buy, & that means you’d be capturing this demographic for your home.

Sometimes buying or selling during this already busy time of year is overwhelming, but the team of RE/MAX Coast and Country is here to help in every way!

Reach out, we’d love to hear from you!
