Two important advantages of selling homes during the holidays:
1. Less competition. Many people are already aware that there is a shortage of listings. This is even more true during the holidays, when some home sellers choose to retreat from the market and wait until the new year. An advantage for sellers willing to jump in now can result in increased buyer competition and possible multiple offers.
2. Buyers are serious. People looking at homes during the holidays are more likely to be driven by immediate need. If they need a home now, then now is when they will make an offer.
