Happy Thanksgiving from the team at DFW Urban Realty!
Although some would tell you the holiday season is a down time for the DFW real estate market, it's actually one of the best times of the year to put your home on the market, as several studies have shown that homes listed in November and December are more likely to sell, sell at a quicker rate, and sell closer to asking price than any other time of the year.
Want more proof?
Well, back in 2011, realtor.com® estimated that sixty percent of real estate agents have advised a seller to list their home during the holiday season, believing that many more serious buyers tend to emerge towards the end of the year. In fact, Thanksgiving in particular is one of the best holidays to have your home on the market, as sellers may find interested buyers who were initially looking during the peak of the summer, couldn't find what they wanted, and are now more determined than ever to find something before the end of the year in order to take advantage of various tax breaks relating to purchasing a home.
Additionally, the lack of inventory due to most sellers believing home buyers aren't searching the market over the holidays is another great reason to test the market this holiday season, which ensures your home will be seen by almost anyone who plans to find and purchase a new home by the time 2015 rolls around.
So, if you're looking to sell your home or condo in the DFW arwa, now may just be the perfect time to list, despite what others around you may say! For more information about buying or selling a home all around the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, give us a a call today at (214) 764-4124!
