Reasons Why Now is a Great Time to Sell!

The McCabe Real Estate Group believes that the holiday season can actually be a great time to sell, especially in Sherwood!  Here are some of the reasons you should consider listing your property right now:

1. Seller Competition is Lighter During the Holidays

Because home sellers tend to be reluctant to sell during the holidays, there is a shortage of inventory on the market.  This means fewer comparable homes, meaning the home seller can often get close to their asking price.  With a scarcity of homes on the market, it places the seller in a unique situation of power.

2. Holiday Home Shoppers are More Motivated

While the average home buyer may take a break from searching during the holiday season, the home buyers who remain active in their searches tend to be extremely motivated buyers.  Whether it’s because they are relocating or their family situation requires a move, these are these are buyers who are willing to brave the cold and put their holiday plans on hold to search for a home.  They are anxious to move and are often willing to spend significant money to relieve their stress.

3. Internet Searches Surge During the Holidays

According to realtor.com, home buyers prefer house hunting from the comfort of their warm home as opposed to braving the cold and seeing homes in person.  It’s critical that you select a realtor who is skilled in online marketing.  The McCabe Real Estate Group owns over 50 internet domains related to real estate, ensuring that buyers will be able to find your home online.  Additionally, because we are with Keller Williams, your home would be exposed to over 300 additional websites.  Our priority is to get your home maximum exposure!

4. Hassle-Free Holiday Selling:

It’s your home, and you can have complete control over the home-selling process.  If you’re out of town, great!  That makes listing the home even easier!  Holiday decorations?  No problem, just keep your decorating similar in style to what your neighbors do.  Have family coming into town?  Then work with us to create blackout dates.  You also can create a daily showing schedule.  We will work with your family’s unique holiday needs and make this process as hassle free as possible, so please consider listing with the McCabe Real Estate Group today!
