You may be wondering if that itch to sell your home is worth scratching, especially with the holiday season coming up so quickly.
It seems like common sense that you should “Wait until the new year” or “Hold off until the warmer weather comes through”.
But the truth is, the holidays are not a scary time to sell your home( see what I did there?), and now may actually be the right time for you to get the process started.
Still on the fence?
Here are 3 major reasons you shouldn't be afraid to sell your home this holiday season
Reason 1: Inventory Is Low
Many people immediately consider selling during this time of year to be impossible. So, they don’t list their home with a trusted agent.
There are often fewer homes on the market and that creates less competition. WIth fewer homes on the market, you may just find that interest in your home is far higher than it might be if you waited until the spring to sell.
Reason 2: Serious Buyers Are Out There
Whatever the market looks like, and especially in a seller’s market, there are people out there who are seriously considering buying a home and the cooler weather isn’t going to throw them off.
Whether a buyer got outbid or they’re just ready for a change, selling this time of year opens up a buyer pool full of people motivated to make a move.
While some will, of course, want to move in ASAP, others might not mind a November or December move.

The key here is to remember that serious buyers exist, and if your house is listed, they could get serious about your home.
Reason 3: Your House Looks So Good This Time Of Year
Whether you celebrate a particular holiday this time of year or not, there’s no denying that something about this time of year leads to some decked-out interiors and exteriors.
Plus, bringing potential buyers in from the cold into a cozy space that feels like home gives them an instant emotional connection with your space.
And you don’t need to be Martha Stewart to make you space homey, bright, and warm. You and your agent can talk about home staging that doesn’t get in the way of the seasonal festivities (or your daily life).
So, go ahead: Let your home’s winter wonderland vibes shine a little
