Torn between listing your home now and waiting until the festive season is over? If yes, then we get you. Nobody likes dealing with the tasks involved in closing a property, while everybody around them is all hyped about how the holidays. But, while it may not be appealing, listing your home before the holidays is a good idea for the following reasons:
With the holidays fast catching up, most home sellers often choose to wait until the holiday fever is over so they can list their properties. This is usually a sensible decision because, during this season, most potential buyers are generally too busy preparing for the happy season ahead to add home inspections to their list. Thus listing your home before the holidays is a good idea as there are few listings, hence less competition and high demand for the few available properties, including yours.
More Serious Buyers
A big chunk of those who purchase homes before or during holidays often do so because they want to spend their holidays in a new home. Others do so because they are relocating to Vegas in the coming year, and thus, they want to be all settled in before the holidays. Hence listing your home at a time like this means exposure to serious buyers who just want to be over and done with the process before the festivities are in full gear or before the New Year is here. This means your chances of closing that deal even before the holidays are in full throttle, are pretty high.
Smoother Closing Transactions
Trying to close a home sale during a season like spring is nothing short of hectic. At this time, there are usually so many home-selling transactions taking place, and everyone in real estate is super-occupied. Listing your home during holidays also eliminates this because with fewer listings, come fewer sales, and, consequently, a smooth sailing closing process.
