The holidays are a time of year when a lot of homeowners decide to pull their South Lake Tahoe Real Estate from the market until after the holidays, or put off listing until the first of the year altogether. While we understand that the holiday season is very busy and having strangers come through your home during this time can feel overwhelming, it is actually a great time to list. Here are a few reasons why listing homes for sale in South Lake Tahoe can make for perfect timing.
- As established above, the holidays are a VERY busy time. If a buyer is out looking at homes for sale in South Lake Tahoe during this season, they are likely very serious about making an offer.
- There is less competition as a seller as the amount of inventory during this time of year usually goes down. That means that buyers who are out and about looking at homes for sale in South Lake Tahoe have less to choose from, which gives your home more attention than Spring & Summer when there are more properties on the market.
- South Lake Tahoe real estate can look very pretty and show quite well during the holiday season, so long as it is done tastefully. Think Martha Stewart neutrals and classic décor as opposed to bright, colorful, blinking lights and over the top décor everywhere you turn.
- Pinnacle Real Estate Group of Lake Tahoe is a proud affiliate of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World and one thing we know is that buyers are relocating all year around. With Lake Tahoe being a second home resort market with one of our popular seasons being focused on winter activities, holidays at the lake bring in a lot of visitors who like looking at homes while they are here.
If listing your South Lake Tahoe real estate during the holiday season still gives you room for pause, chat with your South Lake Tahoe Realtor about the process. As the homeowner, you have complete control of showing times. This means that if you are hosting holiday parties or having visitors, you can let your South Lake Tahoe Realtor know ahead of time that your property won’t be available for showings.
