Selling your house in the holiday season has its benefits for both the seller and the buyer as long as you position yourself in the right way. Here are three reasons why the Christmas holiday is a good time to sell a house.

1.    Holiday Buyers are More Serious

Call it desperation, you are not far from the truth. Holiday home buyers are most likely to urgently need a home for the holiday season. In Nigeria, many Nigerians living in the diaspora usually come home to spend the festive period with their family and loved ones, not all of them have a house here in Nigeria, some of them will be staying in hotels/short-lets, but a good number would choose the option of buying a house, therefore they will need a quick and readily available house to buy in this period. As a seller, position yourself in the right way by putting your house on the market in this holiday period to attract serious buyers, this will lead to quick sales. You can start by uploading your available houses for sale on Buyletlive.com as an agent, while as a buyer, you can visit the platform to view an array of available luxury houses in different locations, we are certain you did find your pick.

2.    Festive Neighbourhoods are Inviting

One of the staples of the Christmas season is that many individuals decorate their homes with bubbly lights and adornments. This is likewise true for neighbourhoods where houses are available for sale. As humans, to different degrees, we all are attracted to what we see. Imagine a house with some extra decorations, Christmas tree, coloured lights, super neat, etc. at a time when you are house searching compared to other houses you see every other season with no decorations, which would you buy? House sellers know there is an unexplainable magic that happens with house sales in this period so they make sure their available houses are as attractive as possible and in sync with the season.

Home buyers during the festive period are likely to see a festive neighbourhood in a more cheerful and festive light, they may be open to buying a house in a neighbourhood that they have been on the fence about during a Christmas season. Home buyers in a festive period are prone to emotional purchases, so it only makes sense if as a seller you create many triggers that can convince a buyer from an emotional point.

3.    Change of Schools and Jobs at Year-End

The end of every year is typically a time for children to move up the ladder in their education and for adults to maybe start a new program. For some people, a new job at a new location is the case. Whichever is the case, a new house is needed to conform with this new change, this is almost an automatic need. Therefore, sellers who are aware of this need are certain to make sales in the Christmas period. Such individuals will require a home as soon as possible and, accordingly, they will chase after another home during the holiday season at the end of the year just before they have to resume their new jobs and schools. These type of home buyers can hardly wait beyond the Christmas period because of the peculiarity of their needs, which is one justification for why listing during the Christmas season can get your house sold fast.

In conclusion, when you sell your house during the Christmas season, you get to sale fast because of the special need, there is no need to be afraid of a price drop because buyers in this period are quite serious. As a buyer, buying a house in this period offers you a cozy and extra beautiful atmosphere that only comes with the season. So, scrap that idea that houses do not sell in a festive period and start putting up all your available properties up for sale on the BuyLetLive platform.
