May you always enjoy God’s peace, love and joy! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Why? Buyers who look in the wintertime are typically very serious and ready to buy. They usually want a place to call home right away. Also, there is usually less competition for your buyer in the winter with fewer homes on the market for sale. Many buyers come home for the holidays or plan ski trips, so it is a perfect time for them to find their home.
It feels good to walk in from the cold to a nice, warm, cozy home. It feels even better when the home is decorated beautifully for Christmas and smells of freshly baked goodies.
When I trained nearly 30 years ago to take the real estate exam to get my license, I learned that buyers purchase their homes approximately 90% on emotion. That didn’t make sense to me at the time. It seemed that was too much money to let ride on emotion for such an important decision.
After 29 years of experience working with buyers and sellers, I have learned why emotion is the most valuable factor in choosing the home. It’s because you want to enjoy living there! It had better feel good and give you that warm fuzzy feeling when you leave the office and head for home. Homes are inviting in the wintertime!
You’ve sung how fun it is to come home for the holidays! If you want to sell your home, I believe now is a great time to do just that.
