While most people are chomping at the bit for summer to arrive, you might not be if you’re planning to move to a new home this year. Moving is a long, complicated and stressful process at the best of times. And summer can be the best of times and the worst of times to make a move.
But, good or bad, summer is the most popular time of the year to move. Here are just a few reasons why and their implication for your move this summer.
1. Good Weather
If moving’s not easy, imagine doing it in the middle of a winter storm. So most people try to avoid that scenario and pala to move during the summer months.
2. A Good Time for Leases to Expire
If you have tenants in the basement, or if you’re the landlord of a larger building, you should prefer leases that start and end in the summer. If you do, summer’s warm and dry conditions means less energy lost, less mud and dirt tracked through your property, and an easier time to complete any repairs and painting to get ready for the next tenant.
3. It Fits School Terms
Families don’t want to move in the middle of a school year. Leaving one school at the end of the school year and starting at a new school at the beginning of a new year is ideal and that means summer is the only time for them to move.
What Summer’s Popularity for Moving Means for Your Move
In two words: get going. From booking your movers and any other services you need, to reserving elevators and renting trucks, they should all be done sooner thatn later to have them all ready for yur desired moving dates. If not, try to have some flexibility in your plans. Also, if you can move during the week, that will be helpful.
