I just received an email from a reporter over at The Record, our northern New Jersey newspaper, asking for some input on selling a home during the holidays. This reminded me that there are lots of great reasons for putting a home up for sale at this time of year.
First, buyers are searching for homes all year round. And with today’s incredibly low interest rates, there has never been a better time. It is more affordable to own a home and pay a mortgage in most major markets than it is to rent. Buyers know this – and you should too.
Holidays are also a great time to stand out from the crowd, because there are usually fewer homes on the market, yours will naturally get more attention. And yes, although there may be fewer buyers in the winter, those that are out shopping for a home are highly motivated. They really want to buy and they are ready to buy NOW!
