Selling Your Home During The Holidays
Tis' the season for giving, family time and good food, but is it a good time for selling a home? Although you may have a lot of things on your plate and may even have to change a few of your plans it's definitely worth the effort.
There aren't as many homes on the Calgary MLS® listings during this time of year. There definitely won't be as many buyers out there either. Here's the important thing though. The buyers that are looking for a home during the holiday season are usually more desperate to find one quickly than other shoppers during the year. While most people are putting their home buying plans on hold, there are some that need to find a home during this time and can't wait until the holidays are over to go shopping for one. If you have a home that shows well and has great features, you may just end up selling it during the Christmas holidays.
It's a happy time of year
The mood is always higher at this time of the year, which can definitely help with the selling process. The fire will be lit, music will be playing and the smell of homemade cookies will be wafting through the air. When a potential buyer comes to view your home they can’t help but be lifted by this homey experience.
You'll also be putting extra attention on your home during these festive days in anticipation of company arriving. It won't take much to put your house into order when a viewing is scheduled since you'll already be doing it already!
Starting the new year
Some people decide to make a home purchase part of their New Year's resolution and get started early by looking at homes right at the beginning of the new year. You can take advantage of these shoppers by having your home listed on the Calgary MLS® during this time. These types of buyers are also still in a festive mood and are anxious to begin the year with a fresh new start.
If you're thinking of selling your home you may want to consider getting it listed during the holiday season. Although there will be fewer buyers looking for a home, the ones that are out there are definitely very serious about purchasing a new property. You may just end up giving yourself the biggest Christmas present of all!
