Who moves during the holidays??  A question you might find yourself thinking about this time of year.  If you have been considering a move, it might seem overwhelming to plan it during the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas.  But here are some things to consider before ruling out listing your property during December:

 

*Everyone has their holiday decorations up and their house is clean in preparation for celebration.  This is a GREAT time to show your house.  People can’t help but fall in love with a home that is decorated.  It shows well, and makes everyone feel at home the minute they walk in the door.

 

*Holiday bonus time is a perfect encouragement for people to make a move.  If you have been waiting to save up enough for a down payment on a house, the wait is over.  If you have a little extra cash in your pocket, real estate is an excellent investment.

 

*Christmas break is the perfect time to house hunt.  The kids are out of school for two weeks, and you can take that time to look for a new house.  Enjoy a relaxing day looking at homes, instead of cramming house hunting into the already over-packed weekend.

 

*A new start for the new year in a new home!  Many people are looking to make a change at the beginning of the year.  A new home is a great place to start.  If you have considered listing your home now, people looking to start fresh in January will have time to check it out and BUY it just in time to move after the first of the year!
