Today we are going to be talking about why the holiday season might be the best time of year for you to sell your home in Calgary. We’ve got 5 reasons we are going to share with you today and as you’ll see, there are some unique benefits to listing your home during this time of year. Here they are:
  1. Accelerated timeline. Deals get done quicker in the winter months. People who are out there looking to buy are serious about getting a deal done, and want to get one done so they can get their families moved in before Christmas.
  2. Less competition. Every year, many home sellers remove their homes from the market when the fall hits for a variety of reasons. Without a huge amount of homes on the market, your home stands out more to buyers. Less competition equals quicker sales, better terms, and a better price.
  3. Homes show better. Typically, homes that are decorated for the holidays show better during the holiday season because they are decorated to invoke feelings of coziness and family in a buyer. 
  4. More time. Buyers generally have more time to view homes during the holiday season because their kids have a reduced schedule and they have vacation time off of work as well. 
  5. New jobs and relocation. January is typically the month where employee transfers happen. Those people relocating here are looking heavily right now, and want to get a deal done before the end of the year and they start their new job.

These are just a few of the many reasons why selling during the holiday season is a good idea. If you have any questions, or are thinking about selling your home this winter, don’t hesitate to give us a call or send us an email. We would be happy to help out however we can!
