It’s that time of the year again.  This is the time when many people think it’s a slow season for real estate sales.  The majority of consumers think that no one is paying any attention to the real estate market now that summer is over.  Well we will be the first to tell you that that is a  complete myth.  The truth of the matter is that people, families, and homeowners are always going to be buying or selling regardless of the time.  Not every homeowner has children that are in school causing the timing of a sale or purchase to not be convenient.  Most base their judgement on whether the market will be moving or not on the school year and in our 14 years of real estate sales, we can tell you that that is not a factor at all.  At least in Southern California.

Believe it or not, our business picks up most during the 4th quarter holiday season.  Based on the above, you’d think it wouldn’t right?  Well like we mentioned above, homeowners with children currently in school are only a fraction of homeowners out there.  People are always going to need access to their equity that they have sitting in their homes, and the circumstances of everyone’s life is always changing causing homeowners and buyers to make decisions on where they need to be or move too.  Here we list 10 Reasons why it is a perfect time to buy or sell real estate during the holidays.

10 Reasons to List During the Holidays vs. waiting until January:

1. While there may be fewer buyers out there, people that are looking for a home during the holidays are serious buyers and ready to buy.

2. There are fewer homes for buyers to look at during the holidays, which mean there is less competition for you as a seller. Less competition = more money.

3. After the holidays, the supply of listings increases substantially, which lowers the demand for your home. More competition = less money.

4. Your home shows better when decorated during the holidays.

5. Many buyers have more time to look for property during the holidays. Typically more time off from work. Partners can look together.

6. For those sellers concerned about showing during holidays, we will restrict the showings on your home to the times you want it shown. You will remain in control.

7. You can sell now for more money and not have to physically move until January or February as opposed to getting the process started later. Lost in other listings, it could take longer to sell.

8. Buyers think there is less competition from other buyers during the holidays.

9. Relocation buyers are still out there. Companies not concerned about holiday time and if they have kids they want to get them into school after the holidays.

10. Virtual tour will look better this time of the year.
