    Don’t Wait For Summer to Buy Your New House


    Here at Fanticular Real Estate in Houston, we often hear prospective buyers say they are waiting to find a house until closer to the end of the school year. For a variety of reasons, many people think summer is the best time to move.

    Across the country, moving companies will tell you that the summer months are their busiest times. But the truth of the matter is that moving during the school year is probably better for your pocketbook and your children.

    Saving Money

     When you opt to buy a house now instead of waiting until summer, you avoid the markup that moving companies typically add during their busy times. Just like anything else, the higher the demand for the moving company’s services, the higher the prices. Choosing to move during the off time means that you avoid paying those premium prices.

    Easier Transition for your Children

     Many parents, even when buying a house in a better school district, say that they want to put off moving until the end of the school year, to avoid the disruption for their children’s education. And as parents ourselves, we understand this thought process. Your children may be objecting to the move, not wanting to leave a teacher they are comfortable with or a plethora of friends. So we as parents think we are doing them a favor by waiting until summer to move.

    Unfortunately, we might be doing them a disservice.

    The problem is that just like our jobs are one of the primary ways adults make new friends, school classrooms are the primary way for children to make new friends. So if you move your children to a new neighborhood as soon as school gets out, you may be cursing them to a very long and lonely summer. Sure, they might meet other kids in the neighborhood, but they might not.

    Moving during the schoolFantastic!   year gives your children a chance to adjust to the new area and make new friends before summer vacation.

    Moving in the Summer is HOT!

     In addition to costing you more money and making it harder for your children to adjust to their new home, moving is summer can be downright uncomfortable.  Unless you enjoy lugging boxes in a humid Houston summer, waiting is not necessarily a great idea.

    And the best thing about not waiting until summer to find your new home is that you don’t miss out on houses that are on the market now!  If you start looking now and don’t find the perfect house until later that’s okay, but you certainly don’t want to start looking in May only to see the perfect house listed as SOLD.
