Should I Put My Home On The Market During The Holidays?


Should I Put My Home On The Market During The Holidays?


A seller asked me this question and his home sold in one day.


Why put your home up for sale now at the holidays? The main reason is that not many people want their home on the market now; less homes on the market will give yours a nice boost. Buyers still need to buy at this time of year; especially if they have sold their home and need to find another one.

You can still decorate, in fact, homes look so warm and inviting during this time of year. Lights (maybe not the Osborne look) and that lovely tree add ambiance, and the smell of cookies baking will make lookers linger longer.


So if you want to sell at a great time of year when there is less competition, put your home up for sale right now. Call us, we’ll walk you through it.

Someone who needs a home "right now" is out there looking, they are serious buyers.  Hell yea, now is as good a time as any.

Toni, this is a great time for listing a home, and the decor does make a home feel so warm and cozy.

Toni, I think it's a great time to list too. The homes look great and buyers that are out now are serious about their purchase!

Posted by Amanda S. Davidson, Alexandria Virginia Homes For Sale (Amanda Davidson Real Estate Group Brokered By eXp Realty) almost 7 years ago

Yes you should Toni. We all know about the market shortage and because some people did not find what they were looking for there is still a lot of buyers out there looking.

Toni ....That's a very good point! I'm going to use that from now on.

Have a great day in New Port Richey!

I'm a firm believer in using the holidays as a way to market your house.  However, they have to really look good, and not too cluttered.  But for many people who don't celebrate and decorate for the holidays, it is a perfect time because buyers are out there and when they are determined, nothing will stop them!

toni, agreed, and congrats on the one day listing/sale!  I love the pix too!

A decorated home warms the senses of the buyers. So if a seller wants to sell, there is no better time than right now.

I'm glad you clarified the picture... I thought it was yours and Craig's house! :-)

The last two weeks of December are historically the slowest time of the year for me.... maybe this year will buck the trend!

A question we are asked each Thanksgiving and Christmas season.  The answer is YES.  Home sell 365 days a year but they are certain to not be seen if they're not on the market.

There are still plenty of buyers out there! I have several offers in the works right now! Congratulations on the quick pending sale!

Toni,  It is so true.  There are far less homes on the market so why not jump in the un-crowded pool and let your home shine.

Posted by Belinda Spillman, Colorado Living! (Aspen Lane Real Estate Colorful Colorado) almost 7 years ago

Toni, I believe it is a great time to list your home, they really do tend to show well when they are all decorated.  Have a great day!

I knew all my smart AR friends would agree. Thanks everyone. I took that picture last night--we are at Disney for a few days of fun.

Toni, many buyers don't celebrate the holiday and it is surely a great time to put a home on the market. Your proof of this with the gentlemen who sold his in one day.

Howdy and evening Toni

Toni my AR friend, it sure a mighty fine time for folks to list their homes! Just as you always do, you sure have gave folks mighty fine advise!

Toni: I am a firm believer the best time to put a home on the market is when it is priced right and ready for new buyers...that can be any time of the year.

Toni, wow! You have proved that this is the best time of the year to sell the home! Congrats.

You are right Toni, there is less competition during the holdiays...and having the home all decorated is a plus as buyers can imagine having their first Christmas in their new home.

Posted by Rebecca Gaujot, Realtor®, Lewisburg WV, the go to agent for all real estate (Vision Quest Realty) almost 7 years ago

Yes, yes, yes, there are buyers who need to buy NOW.  I have listed and sold properties the before a holiday and the day after.   Good message.

This is definately a question that we hear year after year.  Thanks for your input!
