Today, the question is: Should you sell your home during the holidays or not? We say, YES!, for two reasons:
1) During the holidays, if you put your house on the market, there will be less competition. This is because a lot of people actually like to take their houses off the market because they don't want people coming through their homes during this season. That means if a buyer if looking to buy a home in your neighborhood and your house is the only one on the market, you have leverage over that negotiation. After the holidays, competition will rise again and you will lose your leverage.
2) Buyers are more motivated during the holidays. If they have to move, then they have to move -- and they'll be more motivated to settle a deal!
Because of these two reasons, we encourage you to put your home on the market during the holidays. Make sure you have an experienced REALTOR to help you through this process! We are always here to help.
