Many assume that spring is the best time of year to sell, but there’s a lot to be said about selling during the festive season.
Selling in December and January can put you in a great position to attract more buyers and sell your home faster due to some of the unique characteristics of this time of year.
Here are some of them:
Lots of holidaymakers in town
The Mudgee region can get busy over the festive season, with people coming from far and wide to enjoy the many wonders in our backyard.
A lot of people tend to visit Mudgee over the holidays and fall in love and so it’s a great time to have a property on the market to give out-of-towners a chance to go to viewings.
Houses look great
There’s no denying that properties look great at this time of year. Not only is the sun out and gardens in full bloom, but also a few festive decorations can help tug at buyers’ heartstrings and create an emotional connection with a property. Just make sure not to go overboard on the decorations or they may detract from the property’s features.
A lot of sellers think it’s better to wait until after the New Year to put their property on the market, so there may be a lot less selling competition around than usual. This is great news for those selling because it means that there is less housing stock out there for buyers to choose from, which means your property will get a lot more attention.
Those who take the time to search for a property during the holidays are generally quite serious about buying. They may need to lock in a property before the start of the school year or they have simply been looking for a property for months and are keen to lock one in as soon as possible.
