Selling Your Home During the Holidays
It's beginning to look a lot like a home sale! Homeowners across the city are listing their Harrisonburg homes for sale during the most wonderful time of the year. If you're interested in listing your home during the winter, our REALTORS® have eight things you should know about selling your home during the holidays.

Eight Tips for Selling Your Home During the Holidays

  1. Winter is an excellent time to list your home.
    Despite the colder weather and busyness of the season, the winter is a uniquely advantageous time to sell your home. Typically, there is less inventory on the market which lessens your competition. Many buyers are also more motivated to secure a home as quickly as possible, as many are buying to meet their immediate family or career needs.

How to Stage Your Home for a Holiday Sale
Believe it or not, the holiday season is a fantastic time of the year to sell your home. Although many home sellers may think that weather or festivities will interfere with their viewing potential, there are plenty of potential homebuyers that are highly motivated to purchase a home between November and January. Our REALTORS® have created this list of helpful tips on how to stage your home for the holidays without hurting its sale potential.

  • Festive Yet Functional
    Before you plan any interior or exterior holiday decorating, always remember that your goal is to present your home in the best manner possible. Too much holiday décor — especially if your everyday décor is quite prevalent — may create a feeling of clutter in your home. You don't want your viewers to feel cramped or to cover prominent features of your home with temporary decorations. Keep the festive decorations to a minimum.

Military and Veterans Buying a Home
Buying a home as a veteran or military member comes with its share of unique challenges, but you also have advantages that aren't available to the average buyer. Whether you're shopping for your first home or looking to upgrade from your current one, there is plenty that you can do to make sure you're getting a deal on a home that you'll truly love. Our REALTORS® are here to help you find a great deal on your next home, with six tips for military and veteran home buyers.

  1. Learn the Advantages of VA Loans
    As a military homebuyer, you have the benefit of being able to access VA loans when you purchase a home. VA loans offer a number of unique advantages, including no down payment requirement, and no monthly mortgage insurance payment. However, as with any loan, you need to meet the requirements to qualify for a VA loan. That means you'll want a clean credit report and a steady source of income.
