Why You Should Sell Your Home in November

Did you know that November is the best month to sell your home? All My Sons Moving & Storage of St. Louis can help explain why. 

There are many benefits to selling your home in November, but perhaps the most important reason is that there is not a lot of competition against you.  Keep in mind that most homeowners think that November, December, and January are “dead” months when it comes to real estate, and this can be a huge benefit for you and your family when looking to sell your home.

Keep in mind that the competition is very low during these months, because a lot of families are out doing their Christmas shopping and hosting holiday gatherings in their homes.  The last thing on their mind is selling their home, taking the time to put it on the market, or even moving.  Most homeowners will push everything off until after the holidays because they are not able to focus on moving and the holidays at the same time. 

The holidays bring motivation for many people to buy. Great deals and sales make buying large ticket items enticing to consumers during the holiday season. If someone is looking to buy a home during the holidays, it is most likely because they are aware of how buying during the holidays can benefit them.  Some holiday home buyers may be looking for a new home in order to move away from the winter weather. Other holiday home buyers may have to move out of their current living space by December 1st and are looking to buy rather than rent again.

If you are interested in either selling your home or buying a home in November, talk to your real estate agent and get their advice. Your real estate agent can help you find the best deals and help you sell your home during the holiday season.  They should be able to give you guidance and let you know some great ways to list your home for sale that will grab holiday shoppers’ attention; they should also be able to show you areas where homes are usually up for sale during November.

Another bonus to keep in mind is the tax benefit that comes with buying a home before the end of the year. A tax conscious buyer would be looking to buy during November or December so that they can use it as a tax break and write-off for that year’s return.

Not only will a home that is listed for sale in the month of November be more likely to sell and sell fast, it is also more likely to sell at an amount closer to the listing price.

If you sell your home and are looking to move to St. Louis, your local moving company can help make your move easy and stress-free, so that you can enjoy the New Year in your new home.
