The holiday season has officially descended upon us and the hustle and bustle it brings with it can already be overwhelming for some. You may think that this could not possibly be a good time to sell a home, and in fact, there are some real estate agents out there who may try to persuade you to wait, but we are here to tell you homes sell during the holidays. There are many benefits to selling your home during the holiday season.
Homebuyers in the market this time of year are motivated buyers and are serious. The housing market tends to be less saturated this time of year and that is good news for sellers because that means less competition.
Here are some tips on selling your Shore home during the busy holiday season.
The leaves are falling and before we know it the snow may be coming down as well, and believe it or not these factors can play into the sale of your home. Selling during this time of year means you must be meticulous in maintaining the exterior of your home and maintaining its curb appeal. This means get out there and rake those leaves and shovel the driveway and walkways when it snows. Your home only gets one chance to make a good first impression, and remember the outside is what buyers see first.
Scale Back On Holiday Decor
Some homeowners get into the holiday season more than others and while holiday decorations can make your home more welcoming and cheerful, it is important to keep it minimal. Take a minimalist approach and don’t display decorations that are so over the top that it takes away from the overall feel of your home.
Many homebuyers are starting their search for a home online and your home needs to show well. Good quality photos online will help your home shine in its best light and entice buyers to want to view it in person.
Work With An Experienced Real Estate Agent
Both buying and selling of homes drop during the holiday season typically, and chances are an experienced real estate agent already knows someone who is looking to buy right now. Hiring an experienced real estate agent with a funnel of current and past clients will help your home sell quickly this time of year.
