The days are more gleeful, home decorations are merrier, kids are less naughty and nicer, and your to-do list has never seemed longer. The holiday season is in full effect. If you’re wanting to sell your home and make a move, you’re concerned that it’ll have to wait until after the holidays. You may even think about waiting until weather conditions are nicer to better showcase your home and for shoppers to come to tour it. Even the thought of trying to sell right now, in the thick of the holidays, is just too much.
All this may be true in the world of traditional real estate. But not today – not with the great options you now have at your disposal. You can sell your home now and even continue to live in it until every last Christmas cookie is gone and you’re well into your New Year’s resolutions.
Offerpad will buy your home during the Holidays
Winter and the holiday season tend to be the times of year most avoided by home sellers. Homeowners least frequently put their homes on the market during this period for many reasons including their own availability to make and keep the home show ready and the limited number of buyers willing to shop while they too are busy with the holidays.
When you want to sell during this busy season, Offerpad makes it easy. Simply request an offer on your home online by giving us a few details about your home and we’ll respond with an offer within 24 hours. From there, you and Offerpad can close within a few days. It is really that easy.
Your home listing is not the reason for the season
Knowing that selling a house during the holidays is less common but sometimes preferred or necessary for some families, there is quite a bit of recycled advice about selling the traditional way now floating around the internet. Although worthy of consideration when selling that way, it -much like the process itself- is full of inconveniences and uncertainty.
When you sell to Offerpad, you avoid home showings. That advantage itself wipes out a hefty portion of selling struggles. Especially this time of year, you want to be at home (when you aren’t searching for meal ingredients or gone Christmas caroling), you want to decorate your home for the holidays you celebrate in the way you like, and you want to feel free to have family and friends over to share in the holiday spirit together. You don’t want to schedule times away from home for viewings or add to your baking list for the strangers walking through. You don’t want to worry about presents being stolen from under the tree or shoppers’ muddy or wet shoes ruining your floors. You don’t want to have a for sale sign next to Frosty the Snowman in the front yard and you definitely don’t want to come down on your sale price in the spirit of the holiday.
Offerpad provides the most streamlined and convenient option available for selling your home and moving on to your next residence. With Offerpad, the majority of your home sale can be done online or over the phone. You won’t have to add home chores and real estate meetings to your expanding to-do list this holiday season. We handle all the nitty gritty, so you can sit back and enjoy the yule log with loved ones instead of worrying about adapting your holiday observance to meet the demands of potential buyers.
Sell your home now and move later
After you agree on a sale with Offerpad, you are always free to move out when you’re ready. Yes, you can enjoy an extra-large closing period that will keep you at home for up to three months after making the purchase official. This advantage is always available with Offerpad and customers find it especially helpful this time of year. You can have your home transaction done and taken care of before the holidays and still be in that home to enjoy all the celebrations before moving.
