The holiday season does have some advantages for those looking to sell.
Buyers are more serious and there is less competition with fewer homes actively listed for sale.
Consider these selling tips from FrontDoor.com:
Homes often look their best during the holidays, but sellers should be careful not to overdo it on the decor. Adornments that are too large or too many can crowd your home and distract buyers.
Give house hunters a place to escape from the cold. Make your home feel cozy and inviting during showings by cranking up the heat, playing soft classical music and offering homemade holiday treats. When you encourage buyers to spend more time in your home, you also give them more time to admire its best features.
Relax - the new year is just around the corner. The holidays are stressful enough, with gifts to buy, dinners to prepare and relatives to entertain. Take a moment to remind yourself.
