Less Competition –  Most people wait until spring and summer to list their home, which means during the winter you will have far less competition than any other time of the year.
Homes Show Better During the Holiday – Buyers love homes that can tell a story.   The holidays are a great time to show homes because the home is usually dressed up for the holiday season.
January is the Biggest Transfer Month – Did you know that more corporate moves happen during January than any other time of the year?  This may be a great reason to list your home during the holiday season.
More Time to Get Top Dollar – By starting to market your home early you may be able to secure a higher price.
The Market – Today’s interest rates are at forty year lows.  This gives buyers more spending power, and will be even more important when you begin shopping for your next home.
Tax Benefits – By selling now you can have a closing before or after the new year for tax purposes.
Loan Commitment – During the winter months you and buyers may be able to obtain a loan commitment quicker.
More Time – Buyers may be looking at homes more during the holidays because of vacation time.
Showings – Yes, there may be fewer buyers during the winter months, but those buyers that are left are usually very serious about making a purchase.  You may have fewer showings but great prospects.
