Every year at this time, many homeowners decide to wait until after the holidays to put their homes on the market for the first time, while others who already have their homes on the market decide to take them off until after the holidays. Here are six great reasons not to wait: holiday time

  1. Relocation buyers are out there. Companies are not concerned with and if the buyers have kids, they want them to get into school after the holidays.
  2. Purchasers that are looking for a home during the holidays are serious buyers and are ready to buy.
  3. You can restrict the showings on your home to the times you want it shown. You will remain in control.
  4. Homes show better when decorated for the holidays.
  5. There is less competition for you as a seller right now. Let’s take a look at national listing inventory as compared to the same time last year:



6. The supply of listings increases substantially after the holidays. Also, in many parts of the country, new continue to surge reaching new heights in 2017, which will lessen the demand for your house.
