Waiting until after the Holidays, Isn’t a Smart Decision | Keeping Current Matters

Every year at this time, many homeowners decide to wait until after the holidays to put their home on the market for the first time. Others who already have their home on the market decide to take it off the market until after the holidays. Here are six great reasons not to wait:

1. Relocation buyers are out there. Companies are not concerned with holiday time and if the buyers have kids, they want them to get into school after the holidays.

2. Purchasers that are looking for a home during the holidays are serious buyers and are ready to buy.

3. You can restrict the showings on your home to the times you want it shown. You will remain in control.

4. Homes show better when decorated for the holidays.

5. There is less competition for you as a seller right now. Let’s take a look at listing inventory as compared to the same time last year:

6. The supply of listings increases substantially after the holidays. Also, in many parts of the country, new construction will make a comeback in 2016. This will lessen the demand for your house.

Bottom Line

Waiting until after the holidays to sell your home probably doesn't make sense.

    We’ve been telling people not to wait until after the holidays to sell their home. Many simply don’t get it. I am glad to see that we’ve been right all along. Those that get it capitalize on the holiday rush. Less listings and more motivated, qualified buyers equals a great payday for sellers. New York City is a great example of this. Prices for real estate during the holiday season do not go down. They go up and homes sell a lot quicker, especially in the boroughs we service (Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan).
