Should You List Your Home During the Holidays?

With the holiday season well on its way, we get asked a lot if now is a good time of year to list a home at the Lake of the Ozarks. The holiday season is a busy time of year for everyone, but that doesn't mean that you have to put selling your home on hold. In fact, there are several advantages to listing your home during the holidays, and today the Fran Campbell Team is going to tell you why! Find out the "pros" of listing your home this holiday season below!

You'll Likely Attract Serious Buyers 

If a buyer is looking during the Holiday, they're probably a SERIOUS buyer. Perhaps they are buying a home for tax reasons or are relocating to start a new job in the new year. Maybe they’ve been looking for months and just haven’t found that perfect home yet. Whatever their reason, make it easy for these folks to get a good look at your home by staying flexible with your showing times and be open to negotiating contract terms that work with their schedules.

Fewer homes on the market which means less competition.

Many people will take their homes off the market during the Holidays to avoid stress. And most new sellers will decide to wait until the first of the year or even springtime to put their homes up for sale. Reduced inventory means more buyers checking out your home, either online or in person. Keep their attention by making sure your home is priced to sell and that your home is in “show” condition at all times. Fewer homes will increase your chances of landing an offer!

Emotions are running high for buyers too.

Buyers tend to be more emotional during the Holidays which could help you get your home sold quicker and closer to your asking price. Plus, tasteful Holiday decor often makes a house feel warm and cozy, giving the potential buyer a feeling of "home." Make sure your decorations enhance rather than detract from your home’s best features, and remember to remove them as soon as the season is over.

More flexibility than you realize.

Showings don't have to happen at all hours of the day. While the more your home is available, the better it is for buyers, it's also understandable to have a limited schedule during the holidays. You have the ability to dictate the days you will not be able to show your home.
