Five Reasons Summer is the Best Time to Move

Are you planning to move soon? If so, now’s just the right time of the year to make the leap. Summertime is the best time to relocate, whether it’s across the country or just across the neighborhood. The sun is shining, the kids are out of school, and the future looks nothing but promising. If you weren’t convinced yet, here are five more great reasons that summertime is the best time to move.

Five Reasons Summer is the Best Time to Move


1. Summer is the best time to sell your home

Statistically speaking, summer is the best time of year to sell your house. June, July, August, and even September are when houses really start to move off the market, and selling your current home is pretty integral to moving into a new one.

2. Moving is easier with the kids out of school

While it might seem easier to plan a move while the kids are in school, trying to organize a move around their school schedule is no joke. An additional benefit of waiting until summertime is that you won’t have to coordinate your big plans around their school attendance. Plus, moving in the middle of the term can be unsettling for kids of any age.

3. The weather is better for a move in the summertime

Let’s face it, even in the stickiest summer month, sweating bucketloads is still better than rain or sleet while you’re trying to move a couch down a flight of stairs without slipping. Even if it’s hot, that’s still better than moldy furniture, frozen hands, or moving in the rain. Summertime is almost a surefire time to have a safer and overall better move.

4. Garage sales are a great way to get rid of clutter when you move

Summer is also garage sale season. If you don’t want to move all your stuff, having a big garage sale can help you clear some of it out. Everyone goes to garage sales in the summer to stock up for vacation and back to school.

5. The power of friendship is never stronger than when you are moving

The best thing about moving in the summertime? Your friends are less busy, and you can usually rope one or two or three of them into helping. In fact, you may even know some college kids home for the summer looking for extra work.
