Home Selling During Holidays Can Benefit You!

    Home Selling During The Holidays…. It Works!

    Holiday season is fast approaching and selling your home in the season does have its advantage.

    Here is how home selling during the holidays can work to your advantage!

    Anyone who takes time out of their busy holiday schedule to shop for a new home is serious about buying now. Perhaps they are buying a home for tax reasons or are relocating to start a new job in the new year. Maybe they’ve been looking for months and just haven’t found that perfect home yet. The buyers that come out during holidays are seriously motivated to buy!

    Emotion plays a huge role in which home a buyer purchases.

    Buying is a very emotional thing and when a home is warm and welcoming it makes a huge difference.  Let them imagine their family homecoming in your home this holiday season!

    You don’t have to compete with the market!

    Home sellers are often reluctant to list their home during the holidays, this creates a reduced inventory. You won’t have to compete with too many homes. More buyers will check out your home.

    It can be very difficult for buyers to look at properties during the work year. Many take time off during the holidays and have more free time to preview homes.

    List now for January closings!

    Many companies relocate employees at this time and they are serious buyers. You get less neighbors and tire kickers looking at your home and more qualified buyers.

    Many people have tax reasons to buy before year end.

    If you close by December 31, you can deduct property taxes, mortgage interest, points on your loan and interest costs.

    There are many more potential international buyers that will be looking at purchasing property during our holidays. These buyers don’t observe the same calendar of events as most Americans. When the foreign buyer comes to house hunt, American holidays are often not part of the scheduling process. Don’t miss this opportunity to sell!

    More exposure!

    Internet usage is up during the holiday and social media marketing is booming. Your home can get maximum exposure at this time increasing you chance of a great sale.  Make sure your agent is an expert at social media marketing. It is extremely important in today’s world when most home searches begin on the internet!

    You can control the showings and create blackout times and dates for a stress free holiday season.

    Many people don’t want to be bothered with the phone interruptions and home showings during the holidays. You can have blackout times to help you and your family enjoy the holiday without interruption.
