The holidays are here, which means it’s time for festive decorations, family gatherings, and gift giving. For many people, it’s also a great time to find a new home. If you’re thinking about selling your house, here are five reasons why you shouldn’t wait until after the holidays.
1. Buyer Demand Is Still Strong
While housing supply has increased this year, it still hasn’t kept up with buyer demand. There are many motivated buyers out there searching for their dream home right now. Your decorated and holiday-ready house could catch a buyer’s eye and be just what they’re looking for.
2. Serious Buyers Are Looking
Don’t think that the only people looking at homes during the holidays are just casually browsing. Many are serious buyers, especially Millennials who are in their prime homebuying years and eager to stop renting.
3. Holiday Decor Can Seal the Deal
Your tastefully decorated home can get buyers into the holiday spirit and help them picture celebrating in their new home next year. Leaning into the festive ambiance can make buyers feel right at home.
4. You Control Showing Times
If having strangers walk through your home feels intrusive during this busy season, you can restrict showings to specific days and times that work for you. This gives you more control over your privacy.
5. Escape Rising Rents
Many renters want to take advantage of low mortgage rates and stop renting as rents continue rising faster than home values. Your house could be the perfect way for them to own and avoid another year of rising rents.
This season brings motivated buyers looking for a place to call home. Listing your immaculately decorated house could attract the perfect buyer. Contact me today to discuss listing your home this holiday season!
