It is common knowledge that trying to sell your home during the holidays can be a challenging feat. The reason is that many buyers are not in "house buying mode" as they are more focused on things like planning for Thanksgiving or Christmas and are planning to travel or host out of town visitors during the holidays. This is not the ideal time for many people to be moving.

That said, there are people buying houses all 12 months of the year, and although the available pool of buyers may be reduced for that time period, there are still ways to sell your house during what is typically the slowest time of year. Some of these methods include making sure your home is move-in ready and in top showing condition. Moving during the holiday season is already stressful enough - make this prospect as easy as possible for any potential buyers who come your way.

It can also be helpful to stress the holidays as a goal in your marketing, that is to suggest that if a buyer makes a move towards purchasing your home today, that they might be able to get in the house prior to the holidays and celebrate the occasion in their new home. Adding an incentive can also help to tip buyers in your direction - perhaps a contribution towards their moving expenses? Offering new appliances? Offering to gift a large screen television with an acceptable offer? Tapping into these techniques can be a very effective method for grabbing the attention of buyers during the holiday season.
