Ryan Haley, broker and owner of Atlantic Shores Sotheby’s International Realty, has often been asked whether the holidays are considered a good time to list their property. From experience, the holidays can be one of the best times to sell your home, and here’s why…
The Holiday Season Brings More Serious Buyers
During the colder months of the year at the beach, buyers who are willing to visit the resort area during the off-season have a tendency to be more serious. If they begin their search during one of their busiest times of the year and fall in love with you home, there’s a higher chance they’re willing and able to purchase.
In the resort market, we have a lot of second homes and investments properties. Many buyers may be looking to complete a 1031 Exchange or other tax incentives related to investment properties or secondary homes.
Most Homes Look Their Best When Decorated for the Holidays
During the holiday season, many homeowners love to pull decorations down from the attic, rearrange their living spaces, and prepare the home to be adorned with festive decor. Buyers often appreciate seeing a property in this way, as it helps to create a warm and inviting feeling within the home.
Preparing Their Summer Home
Many buyers want to purchase now so their beach home can be ready for their arrival in the Spring and Summer months.
Stand out from the crowd and have the benefit of increased exposure in a low inventory market, with the potential benefit of a multiple offer situation.
