Selling Your Home This Holiday Season?

sell your home during the holidaysTraditionally the holiday season is not the best time to sell your home due to tight schedules, weather conditions, and buyers busy schedules. However, if you would still like to sell your home before year-end, there are some things you can do to make your home outshine other listings!

You may even find that the holiday season makes for a better sale as only serious buyers are spending the time to view your home due to all those demands. Your buyer could also have goals or timeframe deadlines they are trying to meet with regards to the end of the year, giving you a more solid and dependable escrow.


Suggestions to get your home ready while still enjoying the holiday season:


  • Warm up your home and your buyers with freshly baked treats, a comfortable thermostat, and a few well-chosen decorations.  Remember the “less is more” phrase and keep surfaces clear when possible.
  • Only use the best photos in your online and paper advertising. When it’s chilly and dark out, more buyers shop from home and only venture out if they REALLY like what they see.
  • Maintenance of your home is critical at this time. Many potential buyers may “drive by” and it’s important to ensure their first impression leads them to want to peek inside!
  • Use a real estate agent who knows your area. Feel free to give me a call to see how quickly we can get your home sold.

All my best to you and yours this holiday season,
