11 Reasons Home Sellers Should List During the Holiday Season

We are rolling toward the end of October and Thanksgiving is right around the corner.  Many home seller chose to pull their homes off the market this time of year and wait until Spring to sell.  Here are 11 reasons sellers should list during the Holiday Season.

11. By selling now, you may have an opportunity to be a non-contingent buyer during the Spring, when many more houses are on the market for less money! This will allow you to sell high and buy low.

10. You can sell now for more money and we will provide for a delayed closing or extended occupancy until early next year.

9. Even though your house will be on the market, you still have the option to restrict showings during the six or seven days around the Holidays.

8. January is traditionally the month for employees to begin new jobs. Since transfers cannot wait until Spring to buy, you need to be on the market during the Holidays to capture the market.

7. Some people must buy before the end of the year for tax reasons.

6. Buyers have more time to look for a home during the Holidays than they do during a work week.

5. Buyers are more emotional during the Holidays, so they are more likely to pay your price.

4. Houses show better when decorated for the Holidays.

3. Since the supply of listings will dramatically increase in January, there will be less demand for your particular home. Less demand means more money for you.

2. Serious buyers have fewer houses to choose from during the Holidays and less competition means more money for you.

And the number one reason why your seller should list during the Holidays …

1. People who look for homes during the Holidays are more serious buyers!

When Is It Time To Start Thinking About Your Senior Living Options?


Most of the time people will come to us looking for senior living options after they have had a major health issue.  Perhaps its a fall or surgery.  Sometimes it’s after a diagnosis of a severe illness.  It’s times like these that families are often forced to make changes to their living arrangements and lifestyle.  

We like to encourage our clients to consider their options before they are forced to make a change quickly.  This is a big decision and not something you’d want to jump into.  Consider the advice of family, your legal, medical, financial and tax advisors.  There are many options available to seniors as outlined in our recent post.  Explore all available options and consider what works best for you.

If you’re thinking about an independent living community or assisted living community often the best communities are full and have a waiting list.  It may make sense to make the move before you have to so you can get in the community and location you want.  

Contact us with any questions.  When it comes time to make the move we’re here to help make the transition smooth and easy.
