Think outside the box – sell your house at Christmas time!

~ There’s a measxmasurable increase in online traffic on Real Estate websites when the weather gets cold…it makes sense, people are inside, and they are looking at properties online. If you are thinking about selling your home anytime soon, yours should be one of them.

~ Transactions tend to run a little more smoothly in the winter months, when Realtors, Lenders and Title Company Reps are not as busy…your deal will have much more of their attention than it would get in the Spring, leading to less mistakes, faster closing times and more availability.

~ Buyers who bundle up in snowy weather to look at houses are not just looking…they are the people that want to write an offer as soon as possible, and they are the ones that you want looking at your house.

~ Relocation is a year-round process, and many employees find themselves being relocated even over the holidays…January is actually the biggest month for relocation! They don’t have time to wait, even if the weather (or the house) isn’t perfect.

~ If your home is really cozy, it will show even better in the winter…you can leave the gas fireplace on, furry blankets on the couch, scented pinecones or candles and create an environment that just makes people want to settle in front of the fireplace, and open their favorite book with a mug of hot chocolate

~ Some buyers are looking to make a purchase before the end of the year for tax purposes…your ideal buyer might be one of them, but they can’t buy your house if you don’t list until Spring!~ It’s easy to create curb appeal with holiday decor…think white twinkling lights, a tastefully decorated tree in the front window, a simple evergreen wreath and poinsettias.
