As we ring in 2020, many buyers have a new house on their list of new year’s wishes. Historically, December 28th and New Year’s Day are two of the busiest days of the year for real estate searches. One of the benefits of looking at homes this time of year, is with school out of session – it’s much easier to get around town.
Benefits to Selling a Home during the Holidays
Many people also take off from work between Christmas and New Year’s Day which makes it a little less stressful with extra time available to shop for a home.
Holiday Home Shopping
Yes, this time of year can be a hassle for sellers who want to have a few pajama days and don’t want to leave the house. Keep in mind if people are looking for homes during the holiday season — they are serious buyers.
Sell a Home
The easiest way to sell a home is when the goal between the seller and buyer are aligned. A seller won’t sell their home, if the buyer can’t see it. When a buyer wants to see a home and you, the owner, want to sell it — let them come. Plug in that Christmas tree, throw on a coat and take a drive around the neighborhood. You can even stay in your pajamas.
Cheers to a safe, happy and prosperous 2020!
