9 Reasons to List Your Home for The Holidays

Need a reason to put your house on the market now versus waiting until the spring? Here are nine of them!
By +Sarah Marrinan

9. You can sell now and delay closing or extend occupancy to keep you in your home until next year when you will have more buying choices of your own! 
8.  Many homes and yards photograph beautifully with snow cover.
7.  Less competition! Buyers have fewer homes to choose over the holidays giving you the opportunity to get more money for your home.
6. January is traditionally the month from place to begin new job since transferase cannot wait until spring to buy you need to be on the market during holidays to capture that market!
5. Some people must buy before the end of the year for tax reasons!
4. Buyers are more emotional during the holidays so they're more likely to pay a better price for your home.
3. Houses often show better when they are decorated for the holidays. 
2. Since the supply of listings dramatically increases in January there will be less demand for your particular home and more competition! Less demand means less money!
And the number one reason to list over the holidays is...
1. People who look for homes during the holiday season are the most serious buyers!

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.
