It’s common for people to think no real estate business happens here in the mountains of Murphy NC during November, December, and January. This time of year, I often hear, “we’re going to wait till Spring to list our house for sale.”
1.) While there may be less buyers during the summer and fall months, people who look for a home during the holidays are serious … they are ready to buy!
2.) There are fewer homes for buyers to look at during the holidays which means less competition for you … less competition equals more money! Right now there’s about 512 houses on the market which is the least we’ve seen in years! And get this – 46 homes sold in November (last year), 30 in December, and 24 in January. That’s great traffic and odds of selling!
3.) After the holidays the supply of listings increases substantially which lowers the demand for your home … more competition equals less money! Literally, you can see as many as 100 homes hit the market after the holidays and in to the Spring.
4.) Your home shows better when decorated for the holidays!
5.) Many buyers have more time to look for property during the holidays as opposed to a normal work week.
6.) We will restrict the showings on your home to the times you want it shown. You remain in control.
7.) You can sell now for more money and not have to physically move until January or February … as opposed to just starting the whole process at that time.
So don’t wait – want your house sold? Call me today and get ready to hang a sold sign 🙂
