Debating whether or not to wait until winter passes to put your property on the market? Read on to find out why the Holidays have never been a better time to list your property for sale!

1. More Time to Search Over the Holidays

Buyers are in "down mode" and have more time to look for a home during the Holidays than they do during a busy work week.

2. Properties Show Better When Decorated for the Holidays

People are "in the spirit" and get those warm and fuzzy feelings over the holidays! If your property is well decorated, it creates a more homey atmosphere and Buyers can see themselves living there.

3. Competition Is Likely Lower

Serious buyers have fewer properties to choose from during the Holidays and less competition means more money for you (as a Seller).

4. Your Online Presence is Unbeatable

The convenience of whittling down a property wish list from the warmth of the Buyer's home during bad weather makes real estate website traffic kick up significantly. Properties with a strategic online marketing plan get significantly more exposure and those Sellers that are taking a break from being on the market (waiting for spring to arrive) are non-existent to the online Buyer.

5. Holiday Buyers Are More Motivated

Buyers who aren't particularly motivated by time will often take a break from searching during the Holidays and start again in the spring. The motivated ones will alter their Holiday schedule and pull out the snow boots to get out and find their perfect property.

6. Buyers Will Be in the Area

With all the great events happening in the Toronto area over the Holidays, Buyers are flocking to the city. This is a great opportunity to showcase your property and take advantage of Buyers' free time during their time off!

7. Get a Jump Start on the Spring Market

Statistically there are more properties on the market in the Spring. Which means there is more competition. And more options for Buyers to choose from. And potentially less opportunity for you, as a Seller.

8. If You're Traveling, It's Easy

If you leave town, Urban Lifestyle Group will take care of your property and ensure it's warm and welcoming for potential Buyers.

9. The Market is Hot

Homes are selling at record breaking highs. Now is your chance.
