Why you should buy a home in summer

Buyers   |   June 11, 2021   |   twentytwo


You may have heard spring is a good time to buy property however, summer has become a more popular choice in recent years with the weather being the main weighting factor.

We also understand that each personal circumstance is taken into account when deciding on such a big decision but if you have been thinking about buying, now could be the right time for you to be browsing and making a move.

Here are some reasons why:

  • Check out neighbourhoods

With it being warmer, people are likely to be outside which will help give you a feel of what the community is like. Also, if you’re busy working during the day with the much longer, lighter days you can drive or walk around after you finish work to get a feel for the neighbourhood.

  • More viewing opportunities

In addition to checking out the neighbourhood with the longer days, it also allows longer viewing times. Sellers may want to extend their available viewing times as they will still be able to sell their home in a good light.

  • Less competition

It’s known many go away in the summer for holidays or getaways. Although, the news for travelling abroad right now is still uncertain and messages are mixed people are planning staycations. Therefore, with people being away and preoccupied you can expect there to be less competition for properties so you have a chance of getting the one you really want.

  • More options

The lovely idea of warm weather and sunshine will lure sellers onto the market and give you more options to browse when searching for your perfect home. Or, more properties for us to recommend and show you that fit your requirements.

  • School’s out

If you are moving with children, they will be on their summer holidays and when the time comes to move, there’s less disruption. Not just their school routine but also any extracurricular activities that happen during term time, their schedule is clear – one less thing to worry about when buying.

If the sellers have children they may be more inclined to close a sale in time for school starting as they understand and are probably looking to move themselves before the term starts again.

  • You can sell too

Since the summer season is becoming popular and if you are selling before buying your new property, it could be a perfect time. Selling and buying could be easier and more seamless with the demand. Do remember if you are planning this, be prepared for your transaction to ensure it moves along in a timely manner.

In addition to the above reasons, don’t forget the latest government schemes and legislations that have come into effect in favour of buyers.
