The two most asked questions during this time of the year are 1) Should I take my home off the market during the holidays? AND 2) Should I list my house during the holidays?
The Holidays can be a difficult time to have your house shown by Realtors, but it does offer the perfect opportunity to market your home to a new audience.
Lake Norman is a beautiful area to visit during the winter (or any season for that matter). Christmas and New Year’s Guests are abundant in the homes surrounding Lake Norman at this time of year.
With so many visitors, surely a few will be inticed by our mild climate, great schools, and good business opportunities…Not counting great home prices, low interest rates, and fantastic credits that are now available. Many take advantage of longer vacation days during the holidays to go on their house hunting expeditions without losing work days.
All of these reasons, make staying on the market or putting your home on the market during the holidays a good idea!
Playing the role of the seller during the holiday with Realtors attempting to make appointments at difficult times is often a concern. The great thing about CMLS is the use of a showing service. Realtors call this showing service to schedule appts to show your home. When the call comes, if the timing is not perfect then suggest a time that you can work into your winter festivities for a showing.
Do not be concerned about your home being in the perfect state at all times. Christmas decorations in good taste add Charm to a Home and particulary the smells of those great foods and deserts that linger in the air. What a perfect time for a Buyer to see what it is like to call your House..A Home?
With a little help and advice from your Real Estate Professional all of the problems associated with having your home listed during the holidays can be overcome!
Best Wishes on Your House Hunt or Selling Your Home this Holiday Season! Happy Holidays!
