Holiday Season is a Great Time to Sell Your Mt. Pleasant Home

As we approach the holiday season, Mt. Pleasant home sellers always ask us one of two questions:

  • Shouldn’t I just wait until after the holidays before putting my house on the market?
  • Don’t you think I should take the house off the market during the holidays?  No one is buying anyway…

These are very common questions and they are fueled by the myth that no one is looking at homes during this time, much less buying.  Well, I’m here to dispel that myth!!  First, let’s review some statistics…

Large Number of Mt. Pleasant Homes Sold During Holidays…

It might surprise many of you to know that over 18% of Mt. Pleasant home sales in the last 12 months occurred in the months of November 2012, December 2012 and January 2013.  This represented over $161 million in sales!!  The chart below shows the number of Mt. Pleasant homes sold by month over the last 12 months…

Holiday Home Buyers in Mt. Pleasant are Serious…

The fact is…the holiday season is one of the best times to sell your home.  Buyers that view your home during the holidays are very serious buyers and they have fewer homes to look at because many Mt. Pleasant home sellers have taken their property off the market during this time.  Less competition means greater opportunity to sell.  And that’s just the beginning:

  • Home buyers are more emotional during the holidays and tend to spend more money on purchases, including homes
  • Buyers have more time during the holidays to look at homes
  • Many buyers must buy before the end of the year for tax reasons
  • January is traditionally a month when employees must move, therefore they can’t wait until January

So if you are a home seller who is thinking of putting your home on the market before the holidays, go for it!!  It’s a great time to sell.

  1. Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.

    Is it very difficult to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.
    I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin.
    Do you have any tips or suggestions? Appreciate it

  2. I was curious if you ever considered changing the
    layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love
    what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    1 or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
