4 Disadvantages Of Selling A House During The Holiday Season

#1. Selling during the holidays can be disruptive to your holiday plans

The holidays are often times when you might have your extended family over for dinner, or maybe a nice quiet evening in with your family, drinking hot chocolate and watching a classic Christmas movie on TV. But if a buyer wants to look at your home, what choice do you have but to pack everything up and leave while the agent shows your house.

#2. Selling during the holidays can be messy

If you get a lot of snow or rain in your area during this time of year, it can be extra messy, with potential buyers tracking in the snow, ice, mud, and dirt from outside as they wander through your house. It is not very pleasant to clean!

#3. Selling during the holidays can be cold

When buyers walk through your house, they don’t care about your heating bill – so they wander inside and outside, leaving the doors open, even opening up the windows… and you pay for it all. Unfortunately, there’s not much you can do about it!

#4. Selling during the holidays can cause delays

You want to sell, and you probably prefer to sell quickly. But those potential buyers are on their own timetable. In other words, they may expect you to disrupt your plans for holiday dinners, but they might not make a decision over Christmas. And even if they do, they may not be able to get financing from their bank if their bank shuts down several days between December 24 and January 1.

These are just 4 disadvantages of selling a house during the holiday season… but there are, in fact, many more. You CAN sell your house during the holiday season but it’s just not very convenient or fast.
