Many people and other realtors will tell you that you shouldn't sell during the holidays. It's a busy season, there's a lot to plan for. With Christmas on the way, no one has time for it. And while it may be true that there's a lot going on, we say DO IT! You yourself might also be busy with preparing for Santa's arrival or other holiday traditions. But trust US, this is the perfect time to sell your home and here's a list of reasons why.

1. Less competition

A lot of people will take their houses off the market in December, or will choose to delay putting their house up for sale till the new year. They do this for 2 reasons. Homeowners find themselves too busy with the holiday season and they also think buyers will be too busy to be looking at homes. However, there will always be buyers needing to purchase a home and you can be guaranteed there will be buyers out there around Christmas and they will be serious buyers who have to purchase. Buyers want a home and what better Christmas present is there than getting a home of your own. With less homes on the market during Christmas, it means that your home could be ripe for the picking.

2. Serious buyers


Buyers at Christmas time are serious. It's a testament to how serious they are if they haven't put their home search on hold for the holidays. You will find people who are genuinely interested in your home. A lot of buyers during this time need to move. Whether they have already sold their home or have to relocate by the end of the year. Usually they are looking to find a place ASAP.
