Tips for Real Estate Agents on Closing the Sale Even in November

Closing on home sales in late fall or winter might seem more difficult than closing during spring or summer. However, you might be surprised to find out that certain real estate trends could make it easier to close, even in November. Keep the following in mind to help you close on home sales throughout the holiday season.

Less Competition

Fewer homes are on the market during fall and winter, so there isn’t as much competition. In fact, the number of homes for sale from November to December falls by about 15 percent on average. With a more limited number of homes to choose from, buyers might be more likely to put a bid on a home that you’re selling.

Tax Breaks

Buyers who want to make sure they qualify for certain tax breaks on purchasing a home, such as real estate taxes or mortgage interest, will be eager to buy before the end of the year. These buyers will be busy looking for a home in fall and trying to close on it by December 31st at the latest.

If you’re showing homes to buyers during this time of year, let them know about the tax breaks they might be eligible for if they’re unaware of these.

Online Convenience

Even if the weather is cold, buyers can easily search for houses for sale in the comfort of their current home. Online listings with high-quality photos and videos offer a convenient way to market these homes during this time of year when buyers might not want to drive around the area looking at homes.

Make the most of the latest real estate trends, so you can close sales all fall and winter long. Contact Properties Online to find out more about our services for real estate professionals.
