Is selling property over Christmas a good idea?

December 5, 2016 |

There are both pros and cons to selling your property over the holidays, which are worth considering.

Disadvantages of Selling over Christmas

This is a time when many people go on vacation and could lead to fewer buyers to see your property.

Buyers may be wondering why you are so keen to get rid of your property during this time rather than spending time with your family.

If they think you are desperate to sell quickly, this could lead to lower offers.

Advantages of Selling over Christmas

The number of available houses for sale decreases during this period.  This reduces competition between sellers and instead increases the competition among buyers.

Christmas is also a naturally festive time.  It falls during the first month of summer, which provides a bright, cheerful and sunny setting for the home.  Use some simple staging techniques to enhance this with basic Christmas decorating.

Make your House Festive

Sellers who have already decluttered.  You won’t want to negate your efforts by replacing your old clutter with an overabundance of new decorations!

Rather than large Christmas tree choose a tasteful table-top version.  This will serve as a cheerful centrepiece.

You’ll want to ensure that you can find a real estate agent who is not also on holidays during this time.
