"The holidays are approaching. My home hasn’t sold yet. Should I take it off The Market?"
Year after year, realtors advise homeowners who’ve not sold their home to pull them off the market during the holidays. Yet, December has been our team’s #1 selling month for most of the past decade.
Think about it. Who looks for a home between mid-November and the end of the year? Transferees. And local homeowners who’ve finally sold their own homes and need to buy the next home.
Guess what? There may not be many of these buyers, but they NEED to buy, usually want close quickly, and don’t have or take the time to track homes that are no longer on the ACTIVE market.
Who wins? The home sellers who keep their homes on the market. They won’t be deluged with showings. But the few buyers who are looking are SERIOUS buyers. And with fewer homes to choose from, the chances improve that YOURS may sell to one of these buyers.
