One of the most common questions that we’ve been asked every year during the holidays is “what’s the benefit of selling my house during the holiday season?”.
This is an understandable question to ask because you may be busy getting ready for Christmas yourself, and are wondering if you should list it now or hold off and sell your home sometime next year.
In this article, we will answer this important question and provide you with several reasons why you should sell your home during the holidays.
#1 – If You Know That You’re Going to Sell in The Next 3-6 Months, Why Wait?
The first reason why you should consider selling your home now, versus waiting another 3-6 months, is that we know that mortgage interest rates are still historically low right now, but we don’t know where they will be next year, especially since the Fed has indicated that more rate increases are on the horizon.
Yes, you may be celebrating the holidays, or have parties, and family events to attend, but the reality is that there’s no better time to sell your home than right now especially if you want to get top dollar for your home while rates are still low.
#2 – We Know What We Can Get for Your Home In 2018, But We Don’t Know What to Expect Next Year…
One big reality that every homeowner in Southern California has to face if they plan on selling their homes is we know that the real estate market is shifting from a seller’s market to a buyer’s market.
Selling your home right now makes the most financial sense.
When you hire a Real Estate team like the Fred Sed Group to list your home for you, you can sit back and still enjoy the holiday season while we do all of the work that it will take to get your home sold.
#3 – More Homes Are Expected to Come on The Market in January Through March
Last of all, but most important, another reason to sell your home now instead of waiting another 3-6 month is that more homes are expected to be listed January through March of next year.
This means more competition for you, and the possibility of you having to consider offering more concessions, or even reducing the asking price for your home, just to get it sold.
It makes the most sense for you to sell your home now especially if you want to sell it for the most money possible and avoid competition from other sellers.
