1st thing to do when selling your home during the holiday…
Selling: Some think the end of the year is typically a slower time of year for the real estate market, that isn’t the case. In the last several years, December has been one of our highest months in real estate closings! For motivated sellers, that means less competition, less inventory and a higher price for you. After the New Year, there will likely be a flood of inventory from all those sellers who were holding off on listing their homes. Take advantage of the lack of inventory during this season to make your home stand out and attract your ideal buyer. The winter months can present some unique opportunities to get your home sold quickly if you take the appropriate steps.
Price competitively. One sure way to make your home stand out against the competition is to listen to the advice of your Realtor and price your home competitively. The market is incredibly price sensitive. Even slightly over-pricing a home can result in lost momentum and extra days on the market. If your goal is to sell quickly, then over-pricing is not an option. Your days on market will accumulate and in the end you’ll make even less.
