Should you take your home off the market for the holidays???While many buyers put their search on hold throughout the holidays, many buyers are still out there looking. Some are lookie-loos and some have to move or want to move very soon. If your house is not listed, it will not show up on a search, becaues it has been taken off the market. All it takes is one person to buy!If you do take your home off the market and bring it back in the spring there will be a sense of newness to your listing. Buyers like the feeling that they are getting the property before anyone else has had a chance to decide on it.If you keep your home on the market though the holidays...dress it up! Embrace the holidays and make your home feel festive! When a buyer waks up to your home, give them a feeling of welcome, with lights and decorations, it will promote the feeling of being at home...and that is what you want your buyers to feel.Unfortunately, selling real estate is not an exact science...when you are dealing with people and homes, you are selling a feeling and you are selling to four of the five senses: touch, smell, sight and hearing. (Taste too, if you bake cookies!)Remember whatever you decide to do, always have nice curb appeal, make sure the interior is clutter-free, neat and clean.
