10 Good Reasons TO LIST DURING THE HOLIDAYS
1 People who look for a home during the holidays are more serious buyers.
2 Serious buyers have fewer houses to choose from during the holidays, so you have less competition.
3 Houses “show better” when decorated during the holidays.
4 Buyers are more emotional during the holidays.
5 Buyers have more time to look for a home during the holidays.
6 Many people want to buy before the end of the year for tax reasons.

8 You may still restrict showings during your personal family events.
9 You can sell now, but specify a delayed closing or extended occupancy until early next year if you so desire.
10 By selling you have an opportunity to buy during the spring, when many are in the market
BOTTOM LINE? By listing now, you have fewer actual showings but more qualified and motivated buyers
THE REASON. You have less competition, resulting in quicker sale and better price for you.
