Thanksgiving is right around the corner. You’ve decided to list your Clearwater home for sale, but you’re not sure if you should wait until after the holidays to put it on the market. Well, good news! No need to wait! The holidays are a great time to list your home for sale.
So why should you list your Clearwater home for sale during the holidays? Well, there are several reasons. First, you will find a stable of more serious buyers. People are busy during the holidays and don’t have time to spend time browsing through homes, meaning fewer “tire-kickers.” Those looking will be much more serious about buying. There are also fewer homes on the market, lowering the competition. Many people decide to take their homes off the market during the holidays. They think they won’t sell, or don’t want to be “hassled” with showing during the holidays. Wrong thinking, but it will work to your advantage. Serious buyers means your home will sell!
Other reasons? Well, do you decorate your home? Think about how great it looks. You move extraneous furniture, put up a tree, wreaths, lights. Your rooms look beautiful and roomier. Buyers will be able to picture what it would look like during THEIR holidays. It brings up positive emotions that help them hook their hearts on your home. Buying decisions are made on an emotional level, not a rational one. Holiday decorating may help you sell your home.
Did you know that there are tax reasons why buyers might have to buy by the end of the year? What about those who can’t wait until spring to buy? Moving may be necessary between school semesters, or because of a job situation.
Is It A Hassle?
So what about that “hassle”? Selling during the holidays is no more of a hassle than selling any other time of the year. Yes, you have to keep the home clean and staged, but as with any other time of the year, you control when it is shown and have the option to decline showings.
So, don’t wait, list now and give yourself the gift of selling your home!
