In his article, 3 Advantages of Selling Your Home During the Holidays Dave Ramsey sites these ideas:
- Less competition: Many sellers don't want to hassle with having their home on the market during the holidays so they either remove their listing or wait to put their home on the market until the new year.
- Motivated Buyers: Whether they're buying a home for tax reasons or are relocating to start a new job in the new year, anyone who takes time out of their busy holiday schedule to shop for a new home is serious about buying now.
- Your Home Looks Great: Trimmings and holiday decor are emotional cues that play a huge role in which home a buyer purchases. Minimal clutter and tasteful decorations will allow buyers to see their own families celebrating the holidays in your home next year.
