Three Reasons to Shop for a Home During the Holidays

Shop for a Home During the Holidays

The holidays are a great time for parties, shopping, and home buying! If you are in the market for a new house, this time of year may be the best time to acquire your dream home. Here’s why.

Less Competition

Holiday time is a busy time for everyone. Luckily for homebuyers, this means that the competition slows down. While most people are enjoying holiday festivities, serious buyers can explore the market without a lot of others doing the same.

A Necessity to Sell

At the end of the year, many sellers are looking to move their property off the market quickly. There may be an extra motivation due to the need to relocate at the beginning of the year. This incentive to sell benefits a buyer by allowing for a better deal on a home.

Quick Closing

Because sellers need to get moving, buyers are more likely to experience a faster closing at the end of the year. Lenders want loans on the current year’s books, and most want to get the sale complete quickly. This means home-buyers can get into a new home faster.

3 Things to Consider When Staging Your Home for the Holidays

You know that staging a house to make it look comfortable for buyers is always an important part of selling it. If you are selling during the holidays, it’s a good idea to make sure decorations are enhancing and not distracting from your home.

Complement Your Décor

If you have a color scheme in your house, make sure your decorations match it and don’t clash with it. If your home colors are subtle and soft, don’t choose bold colored decorations. Don’t block beautiful views or distract from your interior with holiday ornaments.

Think Cozy, Not Cluttered

Create a warm vibe inside the home with small touches of decoration. Depersonalize your decorations, and avoid cheesy inflatable snowmen that may cheapen the feel of your home.

Skip the Tree

A big tree can make a room feel much smaller, and may distract from a home’s natural charm. Skip the tree if you want to sell, and stick with an evergreen scented candle for a classy, festive vibe.
