You may be thinking that homebuyers won’t be looking for homes during the holiday season, October – December. With today’s Seller’s market and the way people shop for homes on the internet you might want to re-think your decorating ideas.
Many homebuyers have time off during the holiday season and they use that time to look for homes. Internet shopping is often their first step. That is why using a real estate professional with a strong internet presence is so important.
House shopping sites like Realtor.com, Zillow.com and Truila.com and can get your home in front of the active buying market, but using a real estate professional or a Realtor© to sell your home gives you an added advantage. Not only do REALTORS© link their advertising with 100s of internet home shopping sites, your property is offered on the local Gulf Coast MLS system where for 1000s of other Realtors© can also search for their customers.
Using a local REALTOR© is even more important, because they know the market where the buyers looking. Most often they get their customers directly thorough direct internet contact with the buyers.
People visit their families during the holidays and many buyers who want to come back home or who are travelling or transferring jobs will want to look at properties. If you have a local REALTOR© setting up a showing is easy. You can set the times you want to show the house and limit the stress of cleaning up after every family event.
Selling your home during the holidays doesn’t have to be a hassle. Keep the decorations to a minimum. For Halloween and Thanksgiving, orange and brown colors with leaves, wreaths and pumpkins are great decorations. For Christmas, use smaller trees and less tinsel so the home buyer can see your home. If you go away for the holidays, your agent can show your home and keep an eye on your property. Your agent can contact you via internet, email, text or phone to keep you informed and even send you documents to sign for the sale of your home.
