Why People are Moving During the Summer
Summer is “Moving Season”. Not everyone spends their summer on the beach, relaxing poolside or vacationing. A high percentage of people are relocating during the summer months. From Memorial Day to Labor Day professional movers are normally experiencing their busiest season. This can be a very smart season to move for many families. But why are people moving during the summer? Here are the top 3 reasons we’ve heard.
School is Out
Most schools still provide students a summer break from their studies. This time away from school frees up families schedules and avoids changing children’s classes’ mid-year and disrupting their learning. Having the children home provides an extra pair of hands (or more) to assist with all that needs to be done to prepare for the move to!
It also doesn’t hurt that employers are more flexible in the summer when it comes to “personal time requests”. For many companies, business slows in the summer months. This can be a good time for employees who are planning a move to request a couple extra days off.
With the winter months still a fresh memory, people often choose to make their relocation when the roads are no longer icy, risking snowstorms, high winds and unexpected weather delays are mostly “behind them” for them year. It may be hot and wet, but daily afternoon thunderstorms can be planned around and staying hydrated is easier than tracking in ice and snow while fighting freezing temperatures.
An extra bonus includes more daylight hours! Having these extra hours of daylight makes the long days of packing and moving more bearable. Everyone enjoys the few extra hours of daylight to get things done!
Summer is Hot for Real Estate
Spring brings out contracts for home sales. As the real estate market heats up some locations can see as much as a 25% increase in available homes on the market.
