Are the Holidays a Good Time to Sell Your Home?
Posted On: 2022-12-15 10:11:04.903

This time of year, as things draw to a close and the weather is cold, it's natural for thoughts to turn towards home! But can the holiday season be a good time to sell if you've been thinking about it? Many real estate professionals think so! Traditionally many people think only of Spring and Fall as hot times to list a home for sale in Idaho, but that's just not the case. Listing your home during the holidays can have some unique benefits, especially if you position and market your home the right way.

Inventory Is Lower
Winter months tend to see fewer homes listed, so you're going to likely have less competition. This can help your home stand out and also lessen the chance of getting in the middle of a bidding delay as buyers will be more driven.

Winter Buyers Mean Business
If they're looking in Winter chances are they want to move by Spring; this can mean that buyers are much more motivated. During other seasons buyers tend to feel like there's plenty of time unless they have other factors at play and may do a lot of looking without a clear timeline to buy. But Winter buyers are already thinking about the new year and this combined with lower inventory works in your favor.

Year End Transfers and Tax Breaks
A lot of people get job transfers for Christmas! This means they need to relocate quickly and are less likely to delay in closing. What's more tax breaks and returns are something that many people are already making plans to put to good use.

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year
That's right! The Holidays! The neighborhoods and towns will be putting on their best show with lights and festivities. It's a wonderful time to cozy up your home and show it off. The smell of fresh baked cookies and soft lights are sure to tug at the heart strings of interested new owners.

Sometimes life makes plans it doesn't tell us about! That can especially be true during the holidays and when it comes time for a move.
We hope you will call on us whatever life throws your way and let us help you find the spirit of home this holiday!
