We all know summer is the peak home buying season, and there’s a good reason for it! With longer and better days ahead, we can make this summer one to remember!
Many times, families opt to purchase a home in the summer so that they can get their children settled into a new school district, or specifically the district they desire, by the start of the new school year.
It's also typically better moving weather in most parts of the United States, but of course, the temps can be a little high depending on where you live (here in Central Florida, the heat and humidity will be something to consider!)
People who are looking to move to a place that will shorten their commute time to work will often look at buying a home during the summer. Why? Similar to starting a new school year, lots of people like to take the time to buy a home and move during the summer, when things might be a little bit slower at work (depending of course on what type of job you have.)
Some experts say that most sellers want to avoid moving during the holidays. That makes summer an ideal time for people to sell their homes.
Some experts have said that historically, there are fewer buyers during the fall season. A lot of times, parents who are homebuyers want to already be settled into that new home by fall -- not moving during the fall.
And hey, if you decide to buy your new home during the summer, there's a great chance you can have a pool party to celebrate your move in day...just sayin'!
