    Why Waiting Until After the Holidays to Sell Isn’t a Smart Decision | Keeping Current Matters

    Every year at this time, many homeowners decide to wait until after the holidays to put their homes on the market for the first time, while others who already have their homes on the market decide to take them off until after the holidays. Here are six great reasons not to wait:

    1. Purchasers that are looking for a home during the holidays are serious buyers and are ready to buy.
    1. You can restrict the showings on your home to the times you want it shown. You will remain in control.
    1. Homes show better when decorated for the holidays.
