Whether you’re looking to buy or sell your home, what better time than fall and winter months? The holidays are just around the corner, and everyone in the world knows that Texas summers are hot, not ideal weather to be out searching for a home. Dallas real estate agents usually experience spring and fall to be the busiest times of the year. Thanksgiving is just a couple of weeks away, and before you turn around it will be Christmas. So, why buy or sell a home during this busy season?
For sellers, the fall/holiday season means
Beautifully decorated homes, often more appealing to potential buyers. What is more beautiful and inviting than a home that’s elegantly decorated for the holidays? The warmth and spirit of the season makes many homes seem even more fabulous during this special time of year.
More exposure for your home. Many people enjoy hosting holiday parties for friends, family and co-workers. When you have a “for sale” sign in your yard, it will likely capture the interest of many of those who are visiting your neighbors or attending those holiday parties.
It’s usually the serious buyer who will shop for a home during the holidays. The fact is, if someone is interested in your home during one of the busiest seasons of the year, chances are they are serious. If your home is priced appropriately, chances are you will get an offer!
And, the benefit for buyers during the holiday season
Ideal conditions for moving. Because Texas weather is typically mild in fall and winter months, it’s the perfect time for moving. Who wants to move when it’s 100 degrees outside?
Year-end tax breaks. Everyone wants all of the tax breaks they can get, and this begins playing on most people’s minds heavily toward the end of the year. Buying a home before years’ end yields some great benefits, including property taxes and mortgage interest, both deductible from gross income.
A wider selection of homes to choose from. A peak season for the real estate market, buyers will find there are many more beautiful homes to choose from during the fall and holiday season. There’s no better time to find your dream home!
