1 Homes Show Well During the Holidays
One of the best parts of the holidays is seeing all the lights and decorations. This decor dresses up a home well. When your home is being shown, simple decor will make the rooms more attractive to potential buyers. Lights outside of homes add to the curb appeal too, which is crucial when wanting to leave a good first impression.
2 There are LOTS of Buyers in the Market
Previous articles have talked a lot about how prevalent buyers are in the market right now. Millennials are wanting to move out of apartments and become first time home-owners, and Covid-19 has changed what some families look for in a home. With so many buyers flooding the market right now, you should have no problem getting a couple offers. Your house could even sell for over asking price!
3 The Amount of Homes on the Market Does Not Meet Demand
Since inventory is historically low, with around 1.5 million homes on the market right now, there are not enough homes for the influx of buyers. Not only is this a great opportunity for you to sell, your house will sell fast. If you’re worried about buying another home after selling, a great real estate agent will help you find the exact property you’re looking for.
4 There May Not be as Many Opportunities Next Year
Since there is a 2020 “stigma,” we can expect that the market will normalize more next year. At this time next year, there may be a much higher inventory, so demand for your home will go down. This could be a problem if you’re needing to make a move quickly. Selling now ensures that you will get a good interest rate, and that you will sell your home for a great price.
5 The Holidays are a Great Time for a New Home!
This time of year is perfect for a new home! Settling into a new place may be stressful, but spending time with your family throughout the process is a great aspect. Plus, selling your current home means you could move into your dream house for the holiday season. Why not finish 2020 on a positive note?
As the year comes to a close, consider what the best move is for you and your home situation. Right now could be the best possible time to list your home and make the move you’ve been thinking about.
