Why Summer Is the Best Time to Move to a New Home

A family ready to move

Summer is the most popular time of the year for real estate, and as an extension, moving. Are all of these people just following some arbitrary unwritten rule that says you should only move during summer, or is there a reason why the season is so popular for moving? Actually, there are several reasons why it is best to move during the summer. Read on to find out what they are.

Good Weather

No matter where you live, chances are the weather is nicer in the summertime than it is during winter. Packing and lugging heavy boxes around can be a pain (literally!) when you are struggling to keep warmth in your frozen fingers. Not only that, but you may also have ice, snow and other hazards to contend with. In summer, on the other hand, you'll enjoy warmer weather and probably plenty of sunshine, making it easier and more enjoyable to get the job done. Don't forget to drink plenty of water, though!

No School

This is one of the key selling points for moving in the summer for families with children. Moving in the middle of the school year can be incredibly disruptive to a child's education and social circle. By making your move during the summer, your child will have time to get settled in before the new school year starts. If you move early in the season, they'll even have time to make some new friends before heading back to school.

Opportunities for Garage Sales

When the weather is nice, people are more inclined to go walking around their neighborhoods, making summer the perfect time for garage sales. As you are packing up your belongings, set aside anything you no longer want or need so you can host a garage sale. The money you bring in can contribute to covering your moving expenses, and you'll have a lot less stuff to move. At the end of your sale, give away or donate any remaining items.
