Many people consider the holiday season as one of the worst times of year to sell a home. However, it has proven to be a great time to sell for some. For example, holiday buyers tend to be more serious, and competition is less fierce with fewer homes been actively marketed. Additionally, many people have time off during this season, giving them more time and flexibility to coordinate showings. Here are a few tips to help you get your home sold this holly, jolly time of year:
- Go ahead and deck the halls being careful to not go overboard. Before decorating take time to declutter and clean. Holiday touches such as a welcoming wreath, a bowl of pinecones, and a Christmas-scented candle will help make your home feel cozy and inviting.
- Keep the exterior neat and safe. Rake leaves, clean landscaping, and make sure the walkways and stairs are free of ice and snow.
- Lastly, but most important, hire a dependable, hard-working real estate agent that is willing to work during the holiday season. A knowledgeable agent will also help you price the home to sell. No matter what time of year you decide to sell your home, the price always has to be right and what is considered acceptable within the market.
