Black Friday is traditionally the start of the holiday shopping season, and is named for when retailers traditionally turn a profit “into the black.” One lesser well known aspect of Black Friday is the real estate deals that can be found around Hendersonville, NC. A survey by Realtor.com last year found many reasons for why Black Friday can be an ideal time to shop, or to sell, your home. Here’s why:
Why Should Buyers Buy on Black Friday?
Since home buyer traffic drops in the winter, those serious about selling their home often drop their asking prices anywhere from $2000 to $10,000. Some get into the holiday spirit by throwing in freebies with the home purchase to help entice buyers. Some of them include big ticket items, such as washer and dryers, refrigerators, and big screen TVs, at no extra cost. If you’re in the market for a home, there are serious Black Friday deals waiting. [Talk to an Agent about current Black Friday Deals]
Why Should Sellers Sell on Black Friday?
On the flip side, given the above reasons for why buyers should buy, why should you think about selling your home on Black Friday? One is that people looking for a home during this time need to move. They wouldn’t be out looking for a home during the holiday weekend unless they have to. So if you’re looking to get a deal done, this can be the time to do it! [Learn More About Selling Your Home]
