Top 10 Reasons to SELL Your Home Before the Holiday Season

Todays “Did You Know” segment:

“Why should I sell my home now right before the holiday season? Why not wait to the beginning of the year?”

Plenty of homeowners may have the same question. We want to share with you what home sellers about selling their home with Ricardo The Realtor Team today and not next year.

Top 10 Reasons Why NOW is the Best Time to Sell Your House

1) There are motivated buyers in the market that must buy for tax reasons. Home Owners that are thinking about selling should take advantage of the home buyers NEED to buy. Many need to have write offs before the end of the year.

 

2) During the holiday season there are typically less homes on the market. As if we did not already have a low inventory of homes in our area. Well, you know what this means. Its not “Rocket Surgery” after all, less supply means less competition. Less competition means more money in your pocket.

 

3) Many home buyers have time off during the holidays, which increases their availability to see homes. 9 out of 10 Realtors know that home buyers that “house hunt” during the Holiday Season tend to be serious buyers.

 

4) We can all agree that buying a home is an emotional purchase and emotions tend to run high during the Holiday Season. Strategically, having the opportunity to work off a buyer’s emotion is in whos favor? Your favor the home seller… buyers tend to offer a higher price when emotions are involved.

 

5) The Holiday Season reminds many people of family. The home is the foundation of the family unit. More families become motivated to buy during the Holidays more than other times of the year.

 

6) The interest rates continue to be incredibly low, which allows a homebuyer to afford more in the housing market. When rates are low, buyers tend to present higher purchase offers. The Federal Reserve just stated last month that there is almost a 70% probability that the interest rates will increase next year. That means that the average home prices will decline.

 

7) Many sellers will wait and list their homes for sale after the first of the year. This causes a lot of new inventory in January. Remember this is not “Brain Science”, the longer you wait, the more competition you create for yourself.

 

8)“Most people do not want to move during the holidays.” But here is where our expert negotiation skills come into play for your benefit. We can secure a contract now while your selling opportunity is high and arrange for a delayed closing or a rent back agreement with the buyers. Which means more money in your pocket.

 

9) Companies typically bring new talent in, starting at the beginning of the year. These new hires are looking for properties like yours now. You must be on the market to take advantage of these “Have to BUY NOW, Home Buyers”.

 

10) Selling now can give you more buying power later. By selling your home now, you can buy after January when the market becomes saturated with other home listings as a non-contingent buyer. This gives you negotiating power!
