Selling your home is no little task. There’s a good amount of planning, time, financial investment, and patience that goes into selling a house. The best time to sell your home, according to Zillow, is in early March. After all, it makes sense. As the weather warms up, plants start growing, and spring cleaning is in full swing, homes sell fast and for more than usual. Sometimes, though, you can’t wait to sell your home. While it’s not traditional, we’ll talk about some reasons to sell your home during the holidays.
Believe it or not, there are some benefits to selling your home during the holiday season. In today’s post, we’re going to fill you in on everything you need to know about selling a home during the holidays.
It’s no secret that the current housing market is inundated with buyers and has a lack of available homes. Despite this, you should still consider selling your home during the holidays. One of the key benefits of listing your home on the market around the holiday season is the low inventory. As we mentioned earlier, the best time to list your home is at the beginning of spring. The landscaping is beautiful, and the weather is perfect. Due to the benefits of the spring season, the housing inventory increases. With an increase in inventory, there’s an uptick in competition in the market. The low inventory during the holiday season brings serious buyers. A low inventory gives buyers fewer options so that you can place a higher asking price on your property.
‘Tis The Season
For the sake of staging and curb appeal, the holiday season presents a unique opportunity. Who doesn’t love a warm, crackling fire, a beautiful Christmas tree, and decor to match? If you list your home around the holidays, you have the chance to double down on that warm and cozy aesthetic so many buyers look for. Plus, it helps that the neighborhood will be decked out with decorations and festive additions. Staging a home around a happy time helps families envision themselves in the house.
A Quicker Process
Since the inventory is low during the holiday season and brings more serious buyers, the selling process is much quicker than usual. Not only are buyers serious, but they also want to move in as soon as possible in time for the holiday. So, lawyers, banks, and systems move much quicker to expedite the process. Also, they are less busy during this time of year.
