Before you know it Thanksgiving and Christmas will come and go and we will be celebrating the 2012 New Year…. time has been flying by!  Many sellers struggle when it comes to deciding to list their homes during the holiday season.

Contrary to what most people think, Thanksgiving to New Years is a very busy time for Real Estate Agents.

Many sellers take their homes off the market during the holiday season so their family will not be bothered.  Having fewer homes on the market is always a plus when selling a home – less competition for your home.  As a seller you can use the holiday to your advantage.  Decorations can be used to make your house look and feel very appealing to buyers.

Some buyers are very motivated and need to purchase a home before the end of the year.  This can be a huge advantage for the sellers.  Buyers looking for a home during the holidays are usually serious buyers.  Your more likely to have people looking to purchase sooner rather than someone who is just out checking the market.  Many buyer may have holiday time off work and use that time to find a new home.
