If the holidays are upon you and your considering selling a house during the holidays or need to sell your house and your wondering if you should attempt to sell now or wait. That’s a valid question and worthy of consideration. In this blog post, we’re sharing 4 disadvantages of selling a house during the holidays, which applies to sellers anywhere in the Dallas Fort Worth and surrounding areas…
There are many thoughts, ideas and opinions about when the best time to sell your house might be. In many cases in and around the Dallas Fort Worth area, spring is best, summer and fall are second best, and winter is okay… with the holiday season being potentially the most difficult time to sell, but not impossible.
4 Disadvantages Of Selling A House During The Holidays
#1. Selling a house during the holidays can be disruptive to your holiday plans
The holidays are often times when you may have family and friends over for dinner, or maybe a nice quiet evening in with your family, drinking hot chocolate and watching a classic Christmas movie on TV. But if a buyer wants to view your home, what choice do you have but to clean up the house and pack everything up and leave while the agent shows your house.
#2. Selling during the holidays can be messy
If you get a lot of snow or rain in your area during this time of year, it can be extra messy, with potential buyers tracking in the snow, ice, mud, and dirt as they wander through your house. It is not much fun to come home after the showing and have to clean the house again.
#3. Selling during the holidays can be cold
When buyers walk through your house, they don’t care about your heating bill – so they wander inside and outside, leaving the doors open, even opening up the windows… and you pay for it all. Unfortunately, there’s not much you can do about it!
#4. Selling a house during the holidays can cause delays
You want to sell, and you probably prefer to sell quickly. But those potential buyers are on their own timetable. In other words, they may expect you to disrupt your plans for holiday dinners, but they might not make a decision over Christmas. And even if they do, they may not be able to get financing from their bank if their bank shuts down several days over the holiday period.
These are just 4 disadvantages of selling a house during the holidays… but there are in fact, many more. You CAN sell your house during the holiday season but it’s just not very convenient or fast many times.
