Many eager home owners are warned that the holiday season is the wrong time to list their home for sale. This is a common misconception that we see among home owners, and I wanted to provide you the top 10 reasons why listing during December is a smart move. If you are committed to selling your home, it can be an excellent time. Most buyers that will be looking at your property during the holidays are often pre-approved by their lender, and tend to be more serious buyers that we see other times. The reason behind this comes down to motivation. Buyers during December often have a different motivation such as using vacation time to search for property. They're doing that because they have to buy, rather than want to buy. Time is of the essence to these types of buyers, rather than someone who is thinking about buying but may not have a definite timeframe for their purchase. One of the most important things for a seller is to ensure that their Realtor is still working and available to deal with offers that are written during the holiday season. Both Myles and I enjoy time with our families during this time, but always make sure that we are able to properly represent the needs of our clients - even on Christmas Day!
