Many people are tempted to wait and put their home on the market or take it off of the market until after the holidays. Here are some reasons to put or keep you home on the market.
People that are looking for homes during the holidays are BUYERS, not lookers. If someone is out scouring the homes for sale, they need a place to live.
Many people want to take advantage of the tax benefits available at this time.
There is less competition for your home due to market inventory. Everyone else is waiting until the first of the year to put their home on the market.
Homes show better during the holidays with decorations.
Buyers tend to be more emotional during the holidays and may pay more for your home.
January is a month when many people start new jobs so that will bring you serious buyers.
