Many sellers consider taking their homes off the market during the holiday season thinking that there just won’t be any buyers out looking at this time of year. In fact, this move could result in a missed opportunity to sell. Those buyers that will take the time to look at homes during this season will likely be serious buyers. Who else would make this effort to buy when so many other things are going on with family, holiday shopping, parties, etc. Also consider the fact that if other sellers do in fact take their homes off the market, now you have fewer homes to compete with.
