Summer’s a Sizzling Time to Move

School’s out. Longer days beckon. And, according to the Beach Boys, “everyone is having fun, fun, fun!”  Summer is also the most popular time of the year to buy and sell a home. And, while looking for a new home can happen any time of year, summer offers some distinct advantages. Here’s just a few.

More Variety
There is more to love because summer is the season when you will find the most housing inventory available. Larger inventory translates into more opportunity to find a specific school district, neighborhood or amenities that you love, at the right price point. Plus, builders like Trendmaker Homes have plentiful choices already constructed and ready for quick move-in.

 School’s Out
For families with kids, this factor is a no-brainer. A summer move earns an A+ for being the least disruptive to school and athletic schedules.  Moving in before the school year starts means your kids can get settled in their new home and potentially get a jump on meeting new friends at the community pool, park or a summer sports league.

 Less Transition Stress
Many people need to sell their current home before purchasing another. More individuals and families are actively looking in the summer, so you may find a buyer more quickly than in non-summer months. If this is your situation, be sure to have your current home on the market as soon as possible after Memorial Day to allow time for your current home closing and transition time into your new home.

True Colors
You can get a better idea of a potential home when the days are longer and the weather is nice. Can you see yourself on the outdoor deck enjoying a frosty beverage, or is there plenty of room for your pup to play? Check out the landscaping, community amenities, commute times, and proximity to work and schools. While exploring the neighborhood, get a feeling for how friendly the area is and maybe chat with some of your potential new neighbors.

Easy Move-in
It just doesn’t get any easier than when you find the perfect new home that is already completed. In a Trendmaker home, you’ll find features like open-concept floor plans, designer-selected finishes, luxury baths and indoor-outdoor living spaces, all perfect for entertaining and enjoying summer living without the stress of building or buying a previously-owned home. Check out the Trendmaker website to browse this summer’s selection of homes that under construction and ready for quick move-in.
