The Perks of Selling a Home During the Holidays

By Crystal Gardner-Phillips | December 9, 2016

During the Holidays, we tend to make lots of purchases. From decorations and gifts for family and friends, to tacky sweaters, turkeys and hams. Are you ready to sell your home and move into a new home in the near future? It’s our job to let you know that there are several benefits of listing your house during the Christmas and Mardi Gras Holidays.



1. Less Competition 

You’re not the only one who has probably considered waiting until after Christmas and Mardi Gras to put your house on the market. There are so many events, parties, parades and football games and our time is limited. Lucky for you, there is less inventory, less choices and your house stands out even more. This could work in your favor to find a serious buyer faster. 


2. More Serious Buyers 

On that note, just like sellers, many potential buyers are distracted by all the Holiday parties, Mardi Gras parades and sports events (WHODAT, Geaux Tigers & Hotty Toddy!).  This means that although there may be fewer buyers, the people who are in the market are probably more serious and could be moving for an important reason such as a timeline.


3. More Time Off Work 

More holidays mean more time off work. Buyers and sellers typically have more discretionary time to dedicate towards the transaction. It may be easier to keep any counter offers, inspections and closings moving forward.

There is a great chance that these benefits will work in your favor this Holiday season. And of course, with a Realtor to guide you through what could be an overwhelming process, we wish you a happy and enjoyable selling process!
