11 Reasons to List Your Home NOW vs 2014

November 4th, 2013

“Is there any point to listing my house now versus in the Spring?”

I get asked this question A LOT this time of year.  Here’s what I think:

  1. 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 allows you to sell high and buy low!
  2. Because of supply and demand you can sell now for more money and we will provide for a delayed closing or extended occupancy until early next year!
  3. 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!
  4. January is typically the month for employees to begin new jobs.  Since transferees cannot wait until the spring to buy, you need to be on the market during the holidays to capture that market!
  5. 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 the week!
  7. Buyers are more emotional during the holidays, so they are more likely to pay your price!
  8. Houses show better when decorated for the holidays!
  9. Since the supply of listings will dramatically increase in January, there will be less demand for your particular home!  Less demand means less money for you!
  10. Serious buyers have fewer houses to choose from during the holidays and less competition means more money for you!

    And the #1 Reason you should list during the Holidays:

  11. People who look for homes during the holidays are more serious buyers!
