Wondering if you should sell your home during the holidays?
I’m sure some people are thinking why bother keeping their home on the market when they have been told not so promising stories about how the festivities and cold drive people away, but hear me out.
True, this time of year may seem to slow down, but don’t be a Negative Nancy! If you want to put your home on the market during the holiday seasons it’s really not all that bad, especially if you find yourself with a very dedicated Real Estate Agent who keeps up with advertising through all the turkey, candy, and presents!
Let’s look on the bright side – buyers never stop looking, especially online.
If someone is on the hunt for a home during these times you should consider them a very serious buyer – if they’re looking now there must be a very good reason for it. During their free time of surfing the internet with today’s smartphones and other gadgets, you want to make sure their your home has a presence.
Seek out a reliable Real Estate Agent with innovative advertising techniques besides just physical print. They can ease your stress during the holidays!
See if they can write blogs about your home and share it all over social media sites. Having them take professional quality photos of your home can do wonders, too. While that’s being done, ask about having a virtual tour of your home done. This is a quick, easy way for a potential buyer to get a better idea of what your home has to offer.
Keep in mind that while other people are pulling their homes off the market for a while or are simply waiting to put them on the market at all, this lowers inventory. Lower home inventory generally means less competition for home sellers. Your home will get more attention from the all seasons buyers that we know exist!
If your home has been on the market for quite a while with rare action, consider lowering the price during this time or fix anything you think may be hindering the sell of your home. Motivated buyers will notice you and feel merry!
Boost up your curb appeal. When autumn hit all your trees lost their leaves – clean them up! Maintaining the exterior of your home is so important. Books do get judged by their covers on occasion. Touch up paint and clean gutters! Shovel your sidewalks and stairs free of any snow and ice to keep anyone from slipping!
By the way, please still decorate, especially if it’s a tradition. Get in the spirit of things, be festive and still enjoy the holidays! However, keep in mind that buyers are still looking, so don’t go overboard so they can’t see passed all the bright lights and lawn decor! You don’t want them feeling blinded by anything gaudy. Simple, pretty decorating can add a very cozy attractiveness to your home.
Selling your home during the holidays can be tricky, but very doable and so beneficial.
