Pros and Cons of Buying and Selling During the Holidays

I love the holiday season! I especially love the holiday season in our great state of Georgia. With so many homes with fantastic front facades, they all seem to be whispering to be donned in all the holiday splendor and decorations they can hold. Windows with wreaths, rooftops with lights, columns with garlands, there is no limit to the creativity displayed! This not only delights the REALTOR in me, (who appreciates beautiful homes in general) but also the part of Sandy who has always loved all the magic and beauty that this particular season holds.

When mentioning the holidays, did you know that there are many towns in our area that exude the holiday season in particular? In fact, Dahlonega, Georgia has been the setting for many Hallmark Holiday movies. It’s true!

Are You Dreaming of a New Home for Christmas?

Do you ever wonder what it would be like to live in a town that completely embraces the winter season in all its fanfare and fervor? Well, wonder no more as I take you on a tour of all the homes that are available to buy in these special holiday towns! Here is your chance to do a little dreaming, let visions of sugarplums dance in your head, and do a little bit of virtual decorating of how you would spend the holiday season in your “new” favorite home.

I can think of no better gift under the tree than a brand-new home, so if one in particular catches your eye, and you want to take a tour, please reach out to me.

Also, stay tuned in the blog after the home searches to learn why it is a GREAT time to both buy and sell during the winter season!

Now…..onto the available homes in some of the magical towns of Georgia and their approximate distance from Suwanee!

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year ... for Moving!

Did you know this month is a GREAT month to buy and sell a home?  There are some great perks to moving this time of year!

Selling

  • There are fewer people selling their homes this time of the year, therefore, your home for sale is sure to get a great deal of attention. Housing inventory is limited as it is, and when you add the holiday season top, it makes now a great time to sell. There is less competition for you as a seller, because people who would be selling similar homes are waiting until spring.
  • Also, people looking at homes during this time of year are usually serious buyers who really want and need to buy a home.
  • Your home is all ready for holiday guests and showings! You are more likely to have your home in tip-top shape for showings, because you are already prepping for the holidays.
  • Your curb appeal is a little extra special due to holiday decorations at your home. 

Curious about what your home’s value is in today’s market?  Use my free home value estimate tool to learn more about the potential worth of your home!

Buying

When buying a home, this season is a great time to purchase for many reasons!

  • There is less competition for purchasing a home, so if you have lost out due to a huge number of competitive offers, this could be the time for a win for you.
  • Since there are fewer buyers, there are fewer closings, so it could mean a quicker close for you as well. This could mean you get to move into your new home sooner than usual.
  • Buying a home before the end of the year can give you tax savings for this year.
  • It is easier to hire movers than it is at the height of the spring/summer moving season.

As always, I am here and available to answer any questions for you in regards to whether selling or buying is right for you - either now or in the future. Just think of me as Santa’s helper when it comes to real estate. Feel free to give me a call anytime at (404) 576-8515, or fill out the contact form below! I hope to speak with you soon, and Happy Holidays!
