Zillow.com | Today’s buyers never stop looking to purchase a home – and the holidays are no exception. They may check out the latest listings on their mobile devices before bed, while waiting for the Thanksgiving turkey to brown or while waiting for the kids’ school holiday show to start.
One of the benefits of listing during the holidays is that the inventory — and competition — are usually lighter.
Inventory for good homes often tightens this time of year. So there’s less competition for sellers, at a time when motivated buyers are out there looking – and no doubt wishing there were more properties to see.
If you’ve been considering selling, are motivated, are flexible on timing and have a home that truly sparkles, consider listing it before Thanksgiving. Those buyers flipping through listings at their kids’ basketball game will be excited to see something new and awesome hit the market – especially if there’s a lack of good inventory in their area. These buyers will be motivated to see your home, regardless of what the calendar says.
