Sell Your House For A Higher Price In The Holiday Season

sell your house this holiday seasonATTENTION: PROPERTY OWNERS

Here’s something that may surprise you.

If you’re thinking of selling your home, there are some powerful reasons why you could…

Sell your house for a much HIGHER PRICE in the holiday season!
Agents tell would be property sellers “nothing will happen before well into next year”. On that basis, they argue, you should forget about putting your home for sale before February at the earliest.

What nonsense. And, self-serving nonsense at that!

The Market Doesn’t Shut Down

The reason some agents tell you that ‘summer time is a quiet time’ is because those agents want it to be quiet. The market is not shutting down. The agents are shutting down! They’re closing up and taking a few weeks’ holiday. So, of course it’s going to be quiet – for them!!

But not for us! At T.G. Newton & Co., we’re planning to be very busy over Christmas and New Year.

In fact, we are experiencing a record number of sales at some record HIGH prices.

So, if you want to sell your house…

We’re Open!

We are open over the holiday period. From Monday December 1, 2014 until Saturday January 31, 2015 – that’s 62 days! – our office will be closed just three days: Christmas Day, Boxing Day and Australia Day.

Very Serious and Keen Buyers

Now, granted, there may not be as many buyers around in the holiday period but those that are looking are usually very serious and very keen buyers.

Last year, on New Years Eve, we sold a property to a fellow who was only in town for two weeks. He works in the mines (in Western Australia). He was so keen to buy – he was walking around with a blank cheque in his wallet.

The Perfect (or Only) Time To Look

Often, the holiday period is either the perfect time for them to look for a property or it’s the only time for them to look. And do you know what frustrates these buyers more than anything else? Trying to find an agent that’s open!

Many ‘holiday buyers’ are more concerned with finding a home than finding a bargain. Some need to get their children settled; others hope to find an investment. And, with less agents open and fewer properties, this means one thing: the law of supply and demand kicks in!

Supply & Demand

Higher prices are therefore often paid for the fewer properties that are available. How much higher? Well, often a lot higher than once February comes around and more properties start to ‘flood’ on to the market.

More homes often means lower prices. Less homes, higher prices!
