Is the Holiday Season a Good Time To Sell Your Home In Springfield Missouri?

A lot of people ask us if it's a good time to list a home in Springfield Missouri for sale during the Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's seasons. The weather is turning colder, days are getting shorter, and people's minds are on the holidays. Is this really a good time to list your home? Absolutely! It's indeed a great time to sell your home!

Christmas in the Ozarks

Homes that are decorated for the holidays are warm and inviting. Greenery on the fireplace or stair rail, a Christmas tree with shiny ornaments and lights, and a few red poinsettias can really make buyers see the attractiveness of your home. During an open house we can even serve hot apple cider to the buyers looking at your home!

Hot Apple Cider For Your Open House

Buyers this time of year are fewer in number but you can rest assured they are more serious buyers and not just window-shopping. People who brave the cold weather to look at homes and give up holiday shopping days are ready to buy. The end of the year is when most companies transfer employees to new jobs and locations. They are ready and motivated to buy!  There are also fewer homes listed for sale in the Ozarks this time of year so it means you have less competition from other properties similar to your home! When your home sells, we can schedule the closing out far enough to give you plenty of time to find a new home. Of course we look forward to finding you a new home too!Springfield Missouri Real Estate Holiday Time
