Selling Your Home During the Holidays

With the Holidays in full swing now, many of those selling their homes feel that now is the time to take their homes off the market. But is now really the best time to do so? Much depends on the seller’s motivation. If the home has been on the market for a while or they are not in a huge rush to sell, some may feel the need to give the home a “break” for a few weeks.

Think about it though, isn’t this really the best time to be on the market? Inventory usually goes down starting around Thanksgiving (although here in the Boise Real Estate Market, inventory has been down for months). Also, the buyers that are still out looking at this time are the more serious type of buyers. They are out looking because they really want to buy, and in many cases, want to be in their new home before New Year’s. This also means that the buyers may be easier to negotiate with.

With the home looking very nice now because it is decorated warmly for the Holiday’s, will give it an even bigger advantage during showings. With inventory being lower, the number of showings should actually increase.  Keep in mind that this time of year Realtors are motivated too! We want to get another pay check in before year-end to help pay for our Christmas!

Bottom line though is that the home will not sell it is off the market! So if you were considering taking your home off the market, think again. If you are considering putting your home on the market in the Boise area, please contact me: or go to my web site to contact me:
