The Benefits of Buying a Home in the Summertime
Larger Inventory Pool
Spring usually heralds the more busy real estate season, so the inventory will likely be broader during the summer months. A large inventory pool means you will have a better chance of finding your dream home. More importantly, it will give you peace of mind because you would not necessarily have to settle for a home that does not meet your requirements for fear of failing to find a suitable home. Moreover, a large inventory pool would give you more leverage for price negotiation.
Sell and Buy at the Same Time
If you need to sell your current home before you buy a new one, you will likely have an easier time doing that in the busier summer property market. However, it is important to remember that it usually takes time to sell a property, so you should list your property as early as possible, preferably in early spring. Similarly, it may take some time to complete the home buying process.
Maintenance and Home Improvement Projects
In the summer months, you would have more hours of daylight and ideal weather conditions to undertake maintenance and home improvement projects such as updating the landscaping, pressure washing the decks and exterior painting, among others.
Summer is usually synonymous with yard sales. This means that it is an ideal time to get rid of the items you no longer need before moving to your new home. A yard sale will not only help you get rid of your unwanted belongings, but also make the moving process easier.
