ARE THE HOLIDAYS A GOOD TIME TO SELL YOUR HOME?

We’re right in the middle ofthe holiday season, and as the market is cooling, a lot of my clients are asking me if it’s a good time to sell. So here's the short answer, YES!

 

Nationally, we are seeing a bit of a market cooldown, but that’s not the case here in Tulsa and throughout the 918. We always see some seasonality during Thanksgiving, Christmas and the New Year, but this is still a great market to sell a home in. A lot of sellers are focusing on the holidays, which is keeping inventory super low. Less competition is better for you!

 

We have had several listings that we put on the market that sold in a few days at or above list price. The buyer pool is usually a little smaller during the holidays. However, in our experience, serious buyers are looking for homes during the holiday season, making offers and buying homes.

 

Interest rates have been up and down. We have seen a slight drop in rates and buyers are looking to lock in that rate before they climb again. So, it makes sense to put your home on the market right now. Each situation is different, but in general, market conditions are ripe for home sellers in Tulsa and the surrounding areas.

 

If you have questions for me about selling your home during the holidays or anything else related to real estate, don’t hesitate to reach out via phone or email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
