Yes, it is happening already - Store fronts decorated with tinsel and holly, and Christmas tunes playing! I know many of you are thinking the holiday months equate to a “slow market”. You may be questioning your chance of selling your home over November, December, and January, and maybe even wondering if you should just wait until the spring market. I would encourage you to think otherwise. Here are 3 very important considerations on why the late fall and winter seasons can be a great time to have your home on the market!
1) Less competition. Over the next few months you will see less and less “For Sale” signs up in your area. If you choose to take your house off the market and wait for spring, you are also choosing more competition.
2) The motivated, ready to purchase buyers are still out there looking at homes! Buyers move for all different reasons…job relocation, downsizing, marriages and many more factors that do not revolve around the seasons. Think about it this way, if a buyer is out looking in November, December and January; they are serious about buying a home!
3) The same holds true for the next 90 days as it did for the spring and summer months, the homes that are priced aggressively, marketed properly and show the best will sell. If any one of those 3 factors are out of line, you will not have a chance to sell in today’s market no matter the season.
We continue to market aggressively and work just as hard over the holiday months as we do in the spring and summer market! Let’s have a conversation today about your home selling plan! Please feel free to call or email me anytime.
