4 Disadvantages Of Selling A House During The Holiday Season

#1. Selling during the holidays can be disruptive to your holiday plans

The holidays are often times when you might have many visitors or extended family over to your house. In general, it is also a busy time of year. If a buyer wants to look at your home, this can be very disruptive and add one more (major) inconvenience to this time.

#2. Selling during the holidays can be messy

If you get a lot of snow or rain in your area during this time of year, it can be extra messy, with potential buyers tracking in the snow, ice, mud, and dirt from outside as they wander through your house. It is not very pleasant to clean!

#3. Selling during the holidays can be cold

When buyers walk through your house, they don’t care about your heating bill – so they wander inside and outside, leaving the doors open, even opening up the windows, and you pay for it all. Unfortunately, there’s not much you can do about it!

#4. Selling during the holidays can cause delays

You want to sell and you probably prefer to sell quickly. But those potential buyers are on their own timetable. In addition, they may not be able to get financing from their bank if their bank shuts down several days between December 24 and January 1.

These are just 4 disadvantages of selling a house during the holiday season but there can be many more. You CAN sell your house during the holiday season but sometimes it’s just not very convenient or fast.
