Despite common belief, the holiday season is the perfect time to sell your house and move. November through January is a busy time of year. The holidays are in gear, many people are traveling, and stress levels are typically high. So why add to the holiday stress by trying to sell your house and move? Two reasons: less competition and more curb appeal.
Most people who are considering selling and moving find it best to wait until after the holiday season. They don’t want to deal with staging the house, finding a realtor, packing and moving. It’s a lot of work. And this is why you should take advantage of the winter months. Less houses on the market mean more people looking only at yours. And it doesn’t have to be stressful. As long as you plan everything out and make smart decisions early on, you will be fine.
First, find a good realtor. Someone you can trust. Meet with him or her and discuss, in detail, the process of prepping the house, showings, etc. Make sure your realtor will be around for the holidays, and will be willing to go the extra mile for you.
Second, after you have found your reliable realtor, price your house to sell. You want the selling process to be as quick as possible. Don’t waste time negotiating prices.
Third, prep your house. Take advantage of the season and decorate accordingly. You don’t have to go all-out, but make your house warm and inviting. When it comes time to show, have warm drinks served. Give people an excuse to get out of the cold weather and into your home.
Fourth, and most importantly, hire TNT Moving Systems. Once your house is sold we will come in and do the rest. Pack you up and move you to your new home. And that means no stress on you.
Take full advantage of the holiday season and list your house now. Then let TNT Moving Systems do the rest. Happy holidays!
