 Thinking About Listing And Selling Your Home During The 2011-2012 Holiday Season?  Here Are The Top Five Reasons Why It May Be A Good Idea:

   1.)  Prospective home buyers may have extra time off during the holiday season to look for their next home, and yours may be the one they want.

   2.)  Many sellers take their homes off the market around Thanksgiving week and don't relist them until after the first of the year or even later in the Spring or early Summer.  But, for those sellers that do offer their homes for sale during the holiday season, they may be able to get an offer closer to their asking price because of the more limited supply of homes normally for sale during the holiday season.

    3.)  Home purchasers that are shopping just before the end of the year may be motivated to close before the end of the year for tax purposes, and could be highly motivated to buy before the end of the year, and willing to wait to move in after the holidays or after the beginning of the New Year.

   4.)  Sellers that incorporate customized holiday lights and decorations in their individualized "home staging" may enable their property to "show better" if it is done tastefully with the benefits of a CHMS, Certified Home Marketing Specialist Broker, that knows how to "holiday stage" the home to be appealing to these holiday home buyers with just the right touches.

   5.)  Because a large number of relocation buyers transfer to the area in January, having a home on the market at the end of the year can capture the transferees who may be motivated and don't want to wait until the Spring or Summer markets when more sellers list their houses and put their properties up for sale.
