HO HO HO As we are coming into the Christmas Season perhaps you've been wondering is this a time you should be selling your home? The answer is YES it can be a fabulous time to sell a home.
Most of us have our homes looking their shiny best for the holiday season... we'll be hosting family & friends so work hard to have our homes looking inviting and welcoming. This is not only appealing to your friends and family it is also appealing to home buyers. Buying a home is often based predominantly on a positive emotional feeling - homes decorated beautifully for Christmas can give a warm fuzzy feeling - consequently bringing you a higher selling price.
But you're probably thinking who goes looking for homes in the busy Christmas season - serious buyers that's who. In June or July you may get Lookyloos who find it enjoyable to browse homes on a sunny summer afternoon - those tire kickers don't look at homes this time of year - when a buyer looks at your home in December it generally means they need to buy so why not expose them to your home.
Lastly there are typically less homes for sale in December than at other times of the year so your competition is less - which is always to your advantage.
So if you're considering selling your home please give me a call & we can discuss whether the timing is right to put your home on the market. Enjoy the upcoming Christmas Season & may your Home be filled with Laughter and Love now and in 2016!
