Advantages of Summer House Hunting

Summertime is right around the corner, and is a favourite season for home buyers. The warmer months have so many advantages that make finding a property a fun and fruitful endeavor! Here are the top reasons why summer is a great time to search for your dream home:

  • More inventory! The real estate market tends to be more active in the summer, leading to a higher number of available listings. Sellers often wait until the warmer months to list their homes, resulting in a greater variety of properties to choose from. This increased inventory can enhance your chances of finding a home that meets all your criteria
  • More potential! Homes tend to look their best during the summer. Gardens are in full bloom, lawns are green, and outdoor spaces are inviting. This enhanced curb appeal can help you better visualize the potential of a property and make it easier to imagine yourself living there.
  • Nice weather! One of the most obvious benefits of summer house hunting is the favorable weather. Clear skies and pleasant temperatures make it easier to tour properties and explore neighborhoods. Additionally, longer daylight hours give you more time to visit multiple homes in a single day, increasing your chances of finding the perfect property.
  • School's out! For families with children, summer is an ideal time to move. With school out of session, you can avoid disrupting your kids’ education and give them ample time to adjust to a new environment before the new school year begins. This also allows for a smoother transition as you can focus on the move without the added pressure of school schedules.
  • Visibility! Inspecting a home is easier during the summer when you don’t have to worry about snow, ice, or extreme cold. Issues such as roof damage, landscaping problems, or foundation cracks are more visible, allowing for a more thorough assessment.
