Have you thought about listing your home, but the holiday season gave you pause? Maybe you think that there won't be any buyers in the market to purchase your home.

The holidays are actually my favorite time to sell a house. Here's why:

  1. Holiday buyers are more serious buyers.
  2. Serious buyers have fewer houses to choose from during the holidays. Less competition means more money for you!
  3. Since the supply of listings will dramatically increase in January, there'll be less demand for your particular home. Less demand, of course, means less money for you!
  4. Some buyers have more time to look for a home during the holidays than they do during their regular work week.
  5. Some people must buy a house before the end of the year for tax purposes. This just happened to me today!
  6. You can still be on the market and restrict showings during the six or seven days when you're actually celebrating the holidays with your family.

Winter buyers are more serious buyers.

This article outlines the 11 reasons why right now is such a great time to list your property.
