At Savvy + Co. Real Estate, we’re here to challenge the notion that selling a home between Halloween and New Year’s Day is a real estate faux pas. It’s time to dispel the myth that the holiday season is a quiet period for real estate transactions. In fact, several studies have shown that listing your home during these months can be a savvy move, pun intended!
Think about this: if potential buyers are actively searching for a home in November or December, they’re not doing it on a whim. These folks have a mission. They’ve either purposefully waited through the bustling spring and summer seasons, anticipating better deals, or they’re dealing with personal time constraints, such as job changes or relocations. For these motivated buyers, the typical barriers associated with winter house-hunting, like inclement weather, shorter daylight hours, and holiday planning, just don’t apply. So, if your home is on the market in November, you’re more likely to receive offers that are close to your asking price.
Here’s a little insider tip: due to the misconceptions about selling during the winter months, some homeowners decide to take their properties off the market toward the end of the year. They think it’s not worth the effort. But guess what? Their loss could be your gain!
With fewer homes available during the holiday season, serious buyers have a limited selection to choose from. This translates to less competition for you as a seller. It’s a win-win situation. You’ll find more eager buyers exploring your exceptionally attractive home, whether online or in person.
So, when it comes to selling your home, let’s rewrite the narrative. Winter is not just a good time; it might just be the best time to sell your home. Let’s work together to make this holiday season your most magical one yet!
