7 Reasons To List Your House This Holiday
December 06, 2019 at 7:02am | Mac Rogers
Around this time each year, many homeowners decide to wait until after the holidays to list their houses. Similarly, others who already have their homes on the market remove their listings until the spring. Let’s unpack the top reasons why listing your
house now or keeping it on the market this winter may be the best choice you can make.
Hi I'm Mac, broker/owner of Albert Rogers Realty here in Castro Valley, CA.
Here are seven great reasons not to wait: Relocation buyers are out there now. Many companies are still hiring throughout the holidays, and they need their new employees to start as soon as possible.
Purchasers who are looking for homes during the holidays are serious buyers and are ready to buy now. You can restrict the showings on your home to days and times that are most convenient for you. You will remain in control and homes show better when
decorated for the holidays.
There is minimal competition for you as a seller right now. Over the past few months we’ve seen the supply of homes for sale decreasing year-over-year, as shown in the graph below:
The desire to own a home doesn’t stop during the holidays. Buyers who were unable to find their dream homes during the busy spring and summer months are still searching, and your home may be the answer.
Late fall and early winter make up the “sweet spot” for sellers. The supply of listings increases substantially after the holidays. Also, in many parts of the country, new construction will continue to surge and reach new heights in 2020, which will
lessen the demand for your house next year.
Bottom Line It may make the most sense to list your home this holiday season. Reach out to us to determine if selling now is your best move. Im Mac Rogers. I will see you at my next open house.
