1. People who look at your home over the holidays are serious buyers.

2. Serious buyers have fewer homes to choose from over the holidays as most sellers take their homes off the market, equating to less competition and more money for you.

3. Since the supply of homes will drastically increase in January, more inventory means more competition in selling your home, which could cost you money.

4. Homes show their best when decorated for the holidays.

5. Buyers can get emotionally connected to a home, visualizing celebrating their future holidays there and may spend more money.

6. Buyers have more time to look over the holidays, with flexibility to view homes during the weekdays.

7. Some people must buy before the end of the year for tax reasons.

8. January is traditionally a month where employees have to move so they can’t wait until springtime. They have to buy now so you would be there to capture that market.

9. You can still be on the market, have the option to delay your close or restrict your showings during those six or seven days to celebrate the holidays.

10. You can sell now for more money and provide a way for you to delay that closing, extending your occupancy until next year.

inspection process over the holidays, asking for fewer concessions which can equate to thousands more in your pocket.

12. By selling now, you have the opportunity to be a non-contingent buyer for next year when houses are priced less due to an increase in housing inventory.
