Spring and summer may be the busiest seasons in the real estate business, but that doesn’t mean that those are the only times to sell your home. If you’re wanting to sell, don’t wait. Selling during the holidays actually has some advantages.
Because most people think that selling during the holidays is pointless, there are less people listing their homes on the market. Your home will stand out to buyers and will be more likely to make it to the top of their list.
This isn’t only talking about less competition with other home sellers. This includes professionals working in the real estate industry. Real estate agents, inspectors, loan companies, etc. are dealing with less clients and will therefore have more time to help you.
There are also less home buyers. This means that those that are looking tend to be more motivated. There may be less people walking through your home, but the few that do are more likely to be interested.

With holiday breaks and vacations, sometimes it can be easier to find time for showing your home. When you’re up in the mountains snowboarding with the family for the weekend, your realtor can show your home to many prospective buyers without you having to worry about keeping the home clean and empty of kids and pets.
The buyers tend to also have more time to come look. Finding a time that works for both of you to show your home will be easier to coordinate.
You home is likely to look its best around the holidays with all the decorations and lights. If you have a fireplace, make sure it’s lit. Make your home feel as cozy as possible. Take advantage of the “holiday cheer” and make your buyers feel right at home!
It’s not called the most wonderful time of the year for nothing. People are generally in good spirits and can make your life easier. Whether you’re dealing with a particularly difficult buyer or an inspector, the holidays may put them in a better mood.
