The question that we always get this time of year is "I'm thinking of selling my house, but should I wait until after the holidays?"

Here are three reasons why the Tampa market is tremendously busy DURING the holidays and why it's still a great time to enter the market as a seller. 

  1. Tampa is a year-round market. What may surprise you to know is that 25% of the closings year after year happened in the fourth quarter. There are a lot of visitors to the Tampa Bay area over the holidays. Often, people keep their homes off the market until after the holidays and they miss those buyers.

  2. A lot of buyers are trying to purchase before the year end so they can put the homestead exemption on the property.

  3. In-town people often have time off during the holidays and can spend time looking at homes during the holiday season.

The holiday season a great time to take advantage of the market and enter it while there's less competition. If you're thinking about selling, and you're not sure what's right for you, give us a call and let's chat!
