7 Reasons to List During the Holidays


Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa.  And yes, Virginia, there are still motivated buyers out there during the winter months!  Here’s some encouragement if you are on the fence about what to do about selling your home…now or later?

1.)  While there may be less buyers out there, people who look for a home during the holidays are serious … they are ready to buy!

2.) There are fewer homes for buyers to look at during the holidays which means less competition for you … less competition equals more money!

3.) After the holidays the supply of listings increases substantially which lowers the demand for your home … more competition equals less money!

4.) Your home shows better when decorated for the holidays!     Fotolia_73631009_XS

5.) Many buyers have more time to look for property during the holidays as opposed to a normal work week.

6.) We will restrict the showings on your home to the times you want it shown. You remain in control.

7.) You can sell now for more money and not have to physically move until January or February … as opposed to just starting the whole process at that time.

Why Fall and Winter can still be a prime selling time…

I’m often asked during this time of year, what should a home seller do?   Leave my home on the market, or take it off till spring?  They hear lots of opinions from people out there, yet in nearly 24 years of business in the Moberly, MO area, I’ve witnessed many homes selling during that time frame that may have been considered “hard to sell” homes.  You see, when fall hits, some sellers choose not to extend their listing, and instead wait till “peak” season starts again in the spring.  But there still are people whose homes will go under contract, and they will need somewhere to live!  So they choose from the available inventory.   Plus, depending on the winter we have, how much snow and how long it lasts, people still are motivated to buy and sell!  Last year’s fall and winter was a very busy time for Advantage Real Estate!


So if you know someone wanting to make a move, buy their first house, or know what’s happening in the market, tell them to call their favorite agent at Advantage Real Estate.  They might just be amazed at the bargain they can find!
