Should You Sell Your Alaskan Home During the Holidays?

When you think about the holiday hustle and bustle—shopping, events, decorating—it may seem like the last thing you should add to your plate is selling your home.

After all, aren't spring and summer the best times to list your home in Alaska? In the past, that may have been the case, but this year is shaping up to be different and the holidays could end up being the best time of year to sell your home in Fairbanks, Anchorage, Eagle River, Palmer, Wasilla, North Pole, and beyond.

Why? A recent Foot Traffic report from the National Association of Realtors shows that there are more buyers out right now than there have been at any time in the last twelve months. This also means that there are more buyers currently looking for homes than there were during the busy spring real estate market!

It all comes down to supply and demand and in today's market, that means supply is currently low (with housing inventory much lower than it has been in past years) and demand is soaring!

Supply
The number of homes currently for sale is much lower than it has been in the past, but as a home seller in Fairbanks, Anchorage, Eagle River, Palmer, Wasilla, North Pole or the surrounding areas that also means you have less competition. Fewer homes for sale means fewer to compete with and if Alaskan buyers decide yours is a fit, they might just spark a bidding war to make sure are the ones who get to move in!

Demand
As we mentioned above, buyer demand is high in Alaska right now! Buyers no longer look for homes during just one season of the year. In fact, with smartphones, tablets, you name it, buyers can search for available properties 24/7— many even have new listings that meet their criteria emailed to them! Buyers are ready to purchase a home during the holidays if the price is right—not to mention if the location and features meet their needs—so you won't want to wait!
