Selling Your Home Over Christmas/New Years ?

Found a great article yesterday on realestate.com.au about selling your home over Christmas. It advises “Don’t fret if you’re trying to sell your home as the tinsel’s going up!” and we definitely agree. We are experiencing enquiry across the board with three homes under contract this week (50 Texas Road Jensen, 9 Kwila Crescent Douglas and another in Condon) …. Here are some little advantages they highlighted to selling through Christmas and New Year….

  1. The spring fall out – spring selling season is winding down, and many people who parted with their home are now looking for their next property.
  2. Time – As workloads and commitments slow down buyers have a little more time up their sleeve to view properties.
  3. Less Competition – there is generally less competition over the Christmas New Year period which means motivated buyers have fewer prospects. In January/February listings begin to surge again.
  4. Mood – Its Christmas! People are generally happier and more relaxed; it is the time of year people begin to start accessing goals and reflecting on the year. Its time for stock take and reinvention – perfect for moving into a new home and new chapter of life.
  5. Romantic Appeal – A home has a unique appeal during Christmas especially if your target market is families. You can dress your property so it reflects a perfect family Christmas – appeal to the heart strings, embrace the season and you’ll connect with others who love it.

So don’t give up on selling over the Christmas period, buyers are still out there – who knows it may just work in your favor!

Our office is operating normal hours of the Christmas period and will only be closed Christmas Day, Boxing day and New Years Day.
