Welcome to the latest episode of “Facebook Live Fridays.” This time, we’re answering a few common questions about selling your home during the holiday season.
Are fall and winter good times to put your home on the market?
Absolutely. Things have slowed down in our market a little bit, but buyers are still looking and inventory is still a little light. If you put your home on the market, it will catch the attention of serious buyers.
Do the holidays make things harder for sellers?
Perhaps, but your home can still be sold during the holidays. Like I said, the market does slow down a little bit this time of year, but any buyers who are, for instance, moving in from out of town will definitely look at your property. In fact, I bought my own house one week before Christmas.
What are buyers typically like during the holiday season?
If you give your home a nice holiday ambiance during showings, with music playing and cinnamon cooking and a fireplace going, that will help make buyers feel comfortable and warm and possibly more apt to make an offer.
Which fall and winter months are the best to list in? Does that even matter?
September and November are typically good months to put your home on the market, but if you stage your home correctly and price it competitively, any time is a good time to list it.
If you have any other questions or would like more information, feel free to give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
