Hello and welcome back to our discussion on whether or not it is difficult to list and sell your home during the holiday season. So we're about to embark on the final quarter of the year and many people look at that quarter as the holiday season. So for example, at the end of October, we have Halloween, followed by thanksgiving and then we have
Christmas and Hanukkah and other holidays and we feel like we're just going from one thing to the next.
And so people ask me all the time, “should I list and sell my home during the holiday season?” Well, the truth is, people move all year long and it would be a sad thing if your home would be perfect for someone who's looking during that holiday season and you've kept your home off the market.
The question really becomes, “how do you manage the things that you do during the holiday season along with the sale of your home?” And it's really very simple. If you have something important coming up. Maybe you have family coming in or you have a big party planned, you can
Actually, take your home off the market just for that day or that series of days. We can do something called a showing restriction or we can do something called temporary off the market.
Don't be afraid to list and sell your home during the holiday season. What you need to do is just simply speak with your agent about which days you need to protect as family time and then make that be part of your plan. And with a good agent and a little pre-planning, you can make that process very easy around the holidays.
I hope this information has been helpful and if you have any further questions, please feel free to reach out to me. I'm Michelle Camaioni with RE/MAX Closers. I wish you the best and I hope we talk soon. Have a great day!
