Every year at this time, many Redding homeowners decide to wait until after the holidays to put their homes on the market for the first time. Meanwhile others who already have their homes on the market decide to take them off until after the holidays. Here are six great reasons not to wait:

  • Relocation buyers are out there looking for homes in Redding. Local companies are not concerned with holiday time and if the buyers have kids, they want them to get into school after the holidays.
  • Purchasers that are looking for a home during the holidays are serious buyers and are ready to buy.
  • You can restrict the showings on your home to the times you want it shown. You will remain in control.
  • Homes show better when decorated for the holidays.
  • There is less competition in the market as a seller right now. Let’s take a look at listing inventory as compared to the same time last year:


The supply of listings increases substantially after the holidays. In Redding, and many parts of the country, new construction will continue to surge reaching new heights in 2017 - which could lessen the demand for your house.
