Why it isn’t ideal
There is so much to do in the summer, but selling your house is not one. Waiting until school starts can be a better option when deciding to sell your home. This is because people vacation, kids are out of school, and summer activities can play as a distraction to some homeowners.
To conclude, there’s too much happening during the summer, so deciding to sell your house isn’t the greatest idea. Most of the time sellers would much rather wait for fall before selling their home.
The market is competitive
It’s very common for the housing market to be saturated with listings, making it a big deal to sellers that the appearance of their home is at its finest. This means that you will definitely have to make time to clean, repaint, stage, and even do some decluttering!
There is so much to do in the summertime! This means there’s tons of trips to make and plan for. Unfortunately, if you decide to sell your home, this could hinder any traveling or vacation plans made. This is especially inconvenient if you’re doing “For sale by owner”. Don’t forget you’ll have to invest time prepping the house prior to listing it on the market.
Summertime doesn’t mean you get a 3-month break from work, but it does mean your kids get a break from school! This will only add to your list of things to take care of when showing your home to potential buyers. This means having to figure out where your kids will go while your showings take place.
If you’re thinking about moving in the summer, be sure you’re aware of all the inconveniences that can arise in doing so. Once you do, ask yourself if there’s a chance to rethink a plan that takes place during a different season.
