Should You Sell Your Home During Christmas?

For most folks the Christmas season is one of the busiest times of the year with traveling, visitors, shopping for gifts, decorations, parties, children's school programs and you name it going on.

Although time is limited if you are considering selling your Viera, Florida home the holiday season is still one of the best times to put it on the market.

The most compelling reason to sell your Brevard County home now is the 2017 market still favors sellers while 2018 is an unknown.  Buyers are still competing with one another resulting in multiple offers with increasing prices for move in ready homes in the most desirable neighborhoods.

We all know selling your home disrupts your lifestyle.
Some may not not want the "hassle" of having showings scheduled and strangers romping through their home with gifts everywhere. I completely understand.
But there are ways to work around these interruptions such as restricting showings to specific hours or days?
Buyers are out there during the holidays out of necessity.

Buyers shopping for a home in December are serious buyers - not casual lookers taking a break from the local mall traffic. For those facing a job transfer at the end of the year, the holidays create an added challenge to an already stressful season.

But what if I don't want to move during the holidays? 
Most closings take 30-45 days from the contract date to close. Even if you get a buyer in December the likely closing date will be the middle to end of January. Besides, the seller and buyer must agree on a closing date as part of the contract process.
Still, if the holidays are not a good time to sell consider spending some time getting your home prepared for the market and be ready to go in early January?

If you are considering selling your Viera home in 2018 lets get moving. Call me at 321-693-3850 if I can help in any way.
