Its counter intuitive I know. Who would want to sell their home during the Christmas holiday season? Surely no one is buying?

Let me give you 4 good reasons why listing your home now could be a very good idea.

1.  You Have Less Competition.

Believing that no one is buying. Many home sellers make the mistake of keeping their homes off the market. They decide to wait until spring. There are always buyers desperate to find homes they can have quickly. Buyers who are looking now, are very motivated. Statistics show that sometimes home buyers at this time of the year can often be convinced to pay premium prices, especially if you can accommodate a quick possession date.

2.  Your Home Will Show Well & Smell Amazing

When does your home look the most inviting and smell the best? During the Christmas season, your home is decorated and the aroma of all that baking, fills the air. There’s simply no other time when most homes look at their most inviting.

3.  Christmas Time Brings in More Visitors to Your Street

Many of your neighbors will be having family and friends over for parties. If some of these visitors love the area and see the for-sale sign, they might call us and buy your home.

4.  Interest Rates Increases May Drive Prices Down

To reduce inflation, the government will continue to increase interest rates. When inflations comes down, so do house prices. Sell now for a known price or take a gamble that sales prices will not be lower in the spring.
