The question that sellers
always ask around this time of year is “Should I list or keep
selling my home during the Holidays? Many people would say NO you should
wait until after the Holiday Season because everyone is too busy thinking
about Christmas and not about buying homes or property. This may
be true for some BUT here are 10 reasons why you should list and keep
selling your home during the Holidays. I know that many sellers are
very frustrated with our soft market but remember it only takes
one buyer to make a deal and your deal might be just around the corner.
Wouldn’t that be the BEST Christmas present this year?

Should List During the Holidays!

the Holidays, so they are more likely to pay your price!

year but happy that they found their dream home this year.

agent calls you in the middle of your Christmas preparations and says
they want to show your home, instead of saying not now….Count to ten
and then say YES and remember this list of 10 Reasons…..
