Looking to move into your next dream home? Don’t wait! Summer is the perfect time to pack your boxes and start your house hunt. Buyers and sellers can both benefit from real estate this season. Here are five reasons why:
Nicer weather. Sunday marked the first day of summer, which mean we’ll be experiencing more sunny weather in upcoming months -no snow and no freezing temperatures. This is the most obvious reason why you should start planning now if you haven’t already! When the weather is warmer, more homebuyers are out and about, which means sellers will get more visits at their open houses.
Better for the children. Moving to a new state or community can be stressful for your children. To make the process a bit more seamless, think about making the transition when they’re on summer vacation. Not only will your little ones have more time to adjust to their new house, but they will also have a better chance of making new friends before classes begin at their new school.
More sunlight. With the longest days of the year upon us, you can make your move into a one-day event. Between loading the moving truck and getting yourself settled, you’ll be better off when there is more sunlight. The last thing you want is to put yourself in harm’s way because it is too dark outside to see where you’re walking!
Garage sales. Did you know that summer is the most popular time of year for garage sales? It’s true – you’re likely to sell more of your unwanted items when the weather is nicer and more people are outdoors. You can even think about joining a group sale in your community – an ideal way to declutter and increase your odds of earning a little extra money and!
More houses on the market. Since there are many advantages to moving in the summer, more people are eager to put their houses up for sale. The more options you have, the easier it will be to find the right fit for you and your family. And if you’re the one selling your house, you’ll benefit from having more buyers and ultimately more offers.
