Your company lets you know you finally have that opportunity overseas and they want you there full time by January. Your extended family has been migrating south and you decide that’s something you’re now ready to do. You are about to add another member to your family, but the apartment you have is too small. These are all great reasons to sell your apartment, but what do you do if it’s the end of October when you find any of this out. Do you list the apartment now or wait until after the holidays? With this show being on Thanksgiving we thought it would be a great time to talk about listing during the holidays. The pros and cons and what we typically think sellers should do.

Traffic is key to a successful listing. Impeding access will hinder any sale. But, if you are a real seller and someone staying put for the holidays a buyer could be eager to pick up that property before year-end. Also, a seller can position their property ahead of the listing wave that typically happens in January. As many sellers take their properties off the market between Christmas and the New Year (days on market are still accumulating) there is less inventory for buyers to see. There are definitely pros and cons to showing your home during the holidays but receiving an offer during that time can be one of the best presents you receive.
