11 Reasons to List Your Home For Sale During the Holidays

Fred Carver Realtor.jpg

1. People who look for a home during the Holidays are more serious buyers! 

2. Serious buyers have fewer houses to choose from during the Holidays and less competition means more money for you! 

3. Since the supply of listings will dramatically increase in January, there 

will be less demand for your particular home! Less demand means less money

for you! 

4. Houses show better when decorated for the Holidays! 

5. Buyers are more emotional during the Holidays, so they are more likely to 

pay your price! 

6. Buyers have more time to look for a home during the Holidays than they do 

during a working week! 

7. Some people must buy before the end of the year for tax reasons! 

8. January is traditionally the month for employees to begin new jobs. Since 

transferees cannot wait until Spring to buy, you must be on the market now to

capture that market! 

9. You can still be on the market, but you have the option to restrict showings 

during the six or seven days during the Holidays! 

10. You can sell now for more money and we will provide for a delayed closing 

or extended occupancy until early next year! 

11. By selling now, you may have an opportunity to be a non-contingent buyer 

during the Spring, when many more houses are on the market for less money!

This will allow you to move and sell high and buy low!

Fernwood 1912 Home Located on two lots

•  2 storey – FOR SALE  CAD1,500,000 . Excellent Value
MLS® 916598

Imagine living in a Edwardian Turn of the Century home loaded with Stain glass windows designed in 1911 by Victoria Architect C.E Walkins for Mr. Ashe competed in 1913.NOTE from the current owners: This house has served its owners well as both a family home and as a source of revenue. Most of the original features of its 1912 exterior construction have been preserved and many of those features in the interior are either intact or have been restored by the current owner. These features are especially evident in the cozy den with its built-in bookshelves and quarter-sawn oak panelling. A major renovation in 1995 saw the addition of a gas fireplace in the large living room plus a wide window seat. This room and the adjoining dining room are a perfect entertaining space or they can be divided by the original pocket doors. In addition to the gas fireplace there are small wood or coal burning fireplaces in the den and the centre entrance hall. There are wood floors, mainly oak throughout most of the main floor. That same renovation saw a new kitchen installed with white cabinets which served to brighten this north facing room. The four upstairs bedrooms have provided rental income in various combinations through the years and some of the plumbing which was added for this purpose is still in situ. There are also two small suites in the basement plus plenty of storage area for both the owner and the tenants. Both bathrooms on the main floor have been updated and the upstairs bathroom features a clawfoot tub. For anyone who enjoys heritage housing and character atmosphere this house is well suited. There is also a large garden and possible room for a garden suite. Pre Building inspection done with Quotes for further Upgrades upon written request through your Realtor.
