The Top 11 Reasons You Should List Your Home in November & December...

11) By selling now, you may have an opportunity to be a non-contingent buyer during the spring, when many more house are on the market for less money!  This will allow you to sell high and buy low!!

10) You can sell now for more money, but specify a delayed closing, or extended occupancy until early next year if you so desire!

9) Serious buyers have fewer houses to choose from in colder months, so you have less competition which means more money for you!

8) Since the supply of listings will dramatically increase in January, there will be less demand for your particular home!  Less demand means less money for you!

7) Houses "show better" when decorated for the holidays!

6) Buyers have more time to look for a home during the holidays than they do during a normal working week!

5) Buyers are more emotional during the holidays and are more likely to pay your price!

4) Many people want to buy before the end of the year for tax reasons!

3) The end of the year is traditionally the time for transfers.  Transferees can't wait until spring to buy.  You must be on the market to capture that market!

2) You may still restrict showings during personal family events.

And the Number One Reason Why You Should List Your Home in November & December is...

1) People who look for a home during the winter are more serious buyers!

By listing now, you may have fewer actual showings, but more qualified and motivated buyers.  The reason??  You have less competition resulting in a quicker sale and a better place for you!
