What’s the top reason to sell your home during the holidays?
Every year about this time we see a lot of sellers take their homes off the market. They don’t want to move during the winter. They don’t want anyone to look during the Christmas holidays. The kids will be on vacation from school. You get the idea, and so do I. But let me share this nugget with you: “there are still motivated buyers out there during the winter months that need to select and buy a home.” And if yours is still on the market, then yours may be what they select!
We can work around the freezing weather conditions. No one wants to move during an ice storm. We get that. Everyone is normally very workable during this season. We have sellers planning to list their homes soon (still). I’m anxious to meet that buyer who has a very narrow window of time to select and close on his/her next home!
We’ve had some record busy fall and winters these past several years in the Moberly, MO real estate market. Interest rates are still low, loan programs are available with no-low-some-20% down programs. (Made you smile, didn’t I?) This means that there are programs with no down payment, low down payment, some down payment, and of course, if you can put down 20% or more, that is optimal.
Feel free to share this with your friends who may be thinking of selling. We’d love to hear from you!
