Holiday Home Selling

Approximately 80 percent of current homeowners think now is a good time to sell, according to a September 2017 housing survey by the National Association of Realtors (NAR). Here are four reasons to sell your home at the year’s end.

  1. Less competition

You’ll have less competition from other sellers during winter, so it’s a great time to get the best price.

  1. Motivated Buyers

There may be fewer buyers looking, but the ones who do are likely more serious buyers.  Many buyers have a new year’s goal of buying a home for tax purposes; mortgage rates, energy credits, etc.

  1. Current Tenants

62 percent of today’s renters think the season’s end is a good time to buy a home. More than half expect their rents to spike and say they’ll consider buying a home if their rent does rise.

  1. “Coziness”

Bringing prospective buyers in from the cold to a home that exudes warmth can be alluring. Make your home look and feel as cozy as possible so potential buyers can visualize their own family’s future holidays in your home.
