‘Tis The Season To Be Selling?
Many homeowners are hesitant to list their homes for sale during the always-hectic holiday season, but in many instances it is a necessity. The reasons may be tax related, work relocation related, or sadly, in the current economy, an attempt to avoid foreclosure. Whatever the reason may be, the decision to sell now may be a profitable one.
Most homeowners who plan to sell their homes want to wait until after the holidays. By listing you home now, you avoid that competition and could be one of the few in your neighborhood to be listed (at least recently).
You can present your home with all its holiday finery and show potential buyers what a fantastic place it would be to make their own memories.
Many potential buyers have days off from work they are trying to use up by the end of the year and since there is only so much shopping anyone can do, they may notice your home while out driving around looking at the light displays.
If you are lucky enough to find a buyer right away, you could possibly have the kids in a new school by the start of the second semester. It is always easier for new students to blend in when other students are also in a mode of change with new schedules.
Whatever your motive for selling may be, it could be right for you to pull the trigger now and put a few extra dollars in your pocket for those bills that will be looming after the first of the year. Please accept our wishes for a happy and healthy holiday and a prosperous new year!
