Why You Should Buy/Sell Your Home During the Holidays

As we approach the Holiday season, many people are having the conversation about buying a new home or selling their current one. And here’s the truth: most of them won’t pull the trigger.

They’ll wait until after New Years. Why?

Because the Holidays are busy. We’ve got shopping to do, parties to plan, presents to wrap, and kids to entertain.

After almost two decades of doing real estate, let me be the first to tell you that buying or selling during the Holidays is actually a smart decision. Here’s why…

Minimal Competition

One of the many things that we have to consider as buyers is the fact that most people are having that exact same conversation going on in their heads, or with their spouse or significant others. So many of the buyers that are your competition now, actually won’t be during the holiday season.

Many people decide to shelve that shopping decision until after the holidays. So it creates less competition for you as the buyer, which means it gives you the advantage on being able to potentially get an offer accepted, when you might not have been successful in months past.

Time Off Has Its Advantages

Things tend to slow down during the Holidays as we all find ourselves with a little extra time off from work. You should use that time off to your advantage. You’ve got more time to find a new home and we’ve got more time to help you.

Low Interest Rates

Also, I want you to think about the interest rates. I mean, when do you think you could have bought a home for 3% or less interest rates?

We are still seeing all time low interest rates right now.

We don’t know how long they’re going to be around, but we for sure know we have to take advantage of them right now.

Tax Incentives

While we still have these extremely low interest rates to take advantage of, also consider the tax incentives.

Buying a home has many tax savings benefits. So getting in and being able to purchase a property before the end of the year can help you substantially on your taxes!
