You may have heard not to sell your home during the holidays. This is far from the truth, and here’s why.
I hear a lot of, “Is now a good time to sell my home? I hear no properties sell during the holidays.” That’s actually untrue.
Autumn and winter can be a great time to sell a home, and a lot of factors go into that. There’s less supply on the market, so you have fewer people you’re competing against.
Buyers this time of year are earnestly motivated buyers, especially here in Florida. With the homestead property savings, people have to close by December 31 to get that the following year, so that’s a huge motivator. Also, we have a lot of large corporations here in central Florida, and the higher executives tend to get moved around the company at the end of the calendar year. So, relocating residents are extremely motivated buyers.

We also don’t deal with that some other parts of the country do. You don’t have to tromp around in the snow to go look at homes. In my opinion, if now is the right time for you to sell your home, it is a great time to sell in our market.
If you have any other questions about the market or real estate in general please feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to speaking with you.
