Listing your home now means dealing with buyers who are more serious and not having as much competition from other home sellers.

Is it a good idea to list your home during the holidays? In my opinion, yes it is.

One reason is that buyers that are out in the marketplace during this time are traditionally more serious about purchasing a property. They also have a lot more time to shop for homes with their families.

Another reason is that inventory is a lot lower during the holiday season. Once we enter November and roll into December, we usually see the number of new listings decline. This means you will have a substantially lower amount of competition to deal with. It’s also important to remember that homes show really well during the holidays. They’re decorated and well-maintained, which makes them extremely marketable.

Once we reach the new year and cross January 1st, the number of new listings here in Las Vegas jumps by 50%. Why not list your home now, get it sold, and let somebody else deal with that logjam? If you’re still not convinced, know that each year we have between 2,000 to 2,300 properties close in November and December, and another 2,000 to 2,300 go under contract. That’s a lot of buyers out there shopping this very moment.

Sell now before the competition spikes after New Year’s.
