Buying Or Selling A Home Around Holidays

Buying Or Selling A Home Around Holidays

It’s like clockwork. When the holidays approach, potential homebuyers are typically planning vacations, attending holiday parties, cooking, or preparing for relatives to come into town. The last thing on their mind is purchasing a new home. That is, until they all bought smartphones- or a tablet- or some other groundbreaking piece of portable, internet-accessing technology.

With new information-accessing technologies becoming a common home accessory, buyers and sellers alike now have the tools necessary to gain immediate access to real estate information with a swipe of their finger or the click of a button. The result? Home buying has become a year-round event! Not only that, but the convenience of new technology has also yielded the ease of online shopping, greatly reducing some of the stress and challenges buyers used to face during the home-buying process.

Sellers, that means the potential homebuyers who come to look at your house around the holidays are serious. Why? Because buyers have fewer choices during the holiday season due to the lack of inventory on the market. Fewer houses on the market equal less competition, and a better chance at getting your home sold. Home buyers are also more emotional around the holidays, and emotional connections are what drive home sales. So capitalize! Especially if buyers have an immediate need for a new home, such as relocation for work, or if they are simply trying to buy at the end of the year to save on taxes.

Whether you’re a buyer or a seller and no matter what time of the year, it always pays to have an agent that knows the market trends. That being said, if you’re still searching for the perfect gift to give your family this year, a beautiful piece of real estate may be the answer!
