Things to Consider

Fewer homes are available during the the holiday season, so there is far less competition. Buyers still need to find a property and move during the beginning of the upcoming year, so the winter months is when they must finalize their home selection. Being one of the few properties available gives you a higher chance of selling. Furthermore, buyers have more time to visit properties during the holiday season. Relocation buyers also frequently use the time off to finalize a home search. It is therefore not uncommon to see homes in receiving offers on Christmas or New Years Eve.
