If you’ve been thinking about moving to a new house or apartment, you might be overwhelmed by all of the planning, including scheduling the ideal time. Between your busy work and school schedules, residential moving can be difficult to squeeze in, but luckily, one of the best times for relocating is upon us! In fact, there are several reasons to pack up your home and schedule a move this spring.
Optimal Housing Market
If you speak to any real estate agent about the ideal time to buy and sell, they will tell you to get a jump on the spring market. Many people are getting prepared for summer moves, so it is a great time to put your house on the market and start searching for your new home.
For renters, spring is still an ideal moving time because these months are usually slow for property managers. With fewer new leases coming in during spring, you are more likely to find a place that offers a move-in special.
Arrangements for Kids
Some people prefer help from their children, while families with young children prefer that they stay out the way. During the spring months, there are more options for finding someone to watch your children, especially as more people find themselves on spring break. As your friends and family start to make summer plans, you might have a harder time finding a babysitter, so you’re better off getting a jump start on things.
Align with Spring Cleaning
Everyone knows what a pain spring cleaning can be, but what if you could kill two birds with one stone? When you move, you usually have to clean your current home and your new one, so why put yourself through spring cleaning just to turn around and start cleaning as you prepare for a summer move?
Time off Work or School
A lot of people choose to move during the summer because they’re kids have more time off, but with spring break and other long weekends, you can find plenty of time to relocate without taking your children out of school. Most importantly, you might find yourself with time off work so that you don’t have to use as many vacation days.
Ideal Weather Conditions
Last, but certainly not least, we recommend that you schedule a spring move because the temperate weather makes it one of the best times. In the summer, temperatures can soar leaving you hot, tired, and at risk for a heat stroke. At this time of year, the snow has finally melted, and the temperatures are comfortable enough to pack up and move all of your things.
