It’s a common belief that you have to sell your home during the spring and summer months to receive the best offers.
What if I were to tell you this isn’t the case. Selling your home during the holidays will attract less competition and that will only provide more serious buyers which may speed up the sales process. A unique advantage that the winter months provide is the ability to create a warm and cozy environment to showcase for potential buyers. The holidays are the time of year that families gather the most, why not create an ambiance that can touch a buyer’s emotions.
Don’t allow the potential for less buyer competition deter you from selling your home during the holidays. Remember, not only are there typically fewer buyers – but there are also fewer sellers. With inventory being low during the holidays you may be able to demand a higher price. This can be a bold strategy due to the unlikelihood of a bidding war, however, buyers may decide that accepting your terms is the most convenient option. Pair this approach with creating an emotional connection with buyers by making your home comfy and cozy, and you can achieve your holiday wish.
There’s a misconception about selling your home during the holidays is not seller-friendly. That’s why a good portion of sellers take their homes off of the market – they assume they won’t receive any good offers. Use this opportunity to make your home stand out and receive the offer that you’re looking for.
