Every year at this time, many homeowners decide to wait until after the holidays to put their homes on the market for the first time, while others who already have their homes on the market decide to take them off until after the holidays.


Here are seven great reasons not to wait:

  1. Relocation buyers are out there. Many companies are still hiring throughout the holidays and need their employees in their new positions as soon as possible.

  2. Purchasers who are looking for homes during the holidays are serious buyers and are ready to buy now.

  3. You can restrict the showings on your home to the times you want it shown. You will remain in control.

  4. Homes show better when decorated for the holidays.

  5. There is less competition for you as a seller right now. Let’s take a look at listing inventory as compared to the same time last year:
