1. Less Competition - Fewer houses to choose from during the holidays means your property would have less competition. Less competition = more money 

2.  We can decide on showing times up front - Showings can be restricted to when you want your home to be shown. Marketing specified showing times is easy and simple to communicate up front.

We know that hosting holiday guests can be one of the most stressful times of the year. That's why we put together this short list of tips to make you feel like the hostest with the mostest!
