Should I wait until the holidays are over to sell? Pros/cons list

Truth: This holiday season, all bets are off when it comes to selling and the holidays. Here's why.

According to, active listings are still 44% lower than the pre-pandemic 2017-2019 average. That means the market is playing catch up to buyer demand, holidays or not. If you're still not convinced, here are a few other pros and cons:

Pros of selling during the holidays: 

- Serious buyers

- Less competition

- Holiday staging 

Cons of selling during the holidays: 

- Fewer buyers

- Hard to stay “show-ready”

- Slower closing timeline 

If you’ve thought about selling but wonder if you should wait, don't! Send me a DM, and I’ll pull what's happening in your neighborhood so you can know for sure.
