While the official start of summer isn’t until this upcoming Thursday, June 21, the season has seemingly been here for a couple of weeks now. Summertime is typically when people start feeling a certain type of itch: an itch to move, an itch for a change of scenery, an itch for a new job, the list goes on. If you’ve been on the hunt for a new place to live, you may be wondering when a good time to begin the whole process is? While it’s certainly one of the busiest seasons for movers, summer can be the perfect time to pack up and head on over to your new home address.
Two Words: Nice Weather
This is a big one, as there can be no worse situation than moving at the height of winter. While the summer can bring rainstorms, the winter can be a tumultuous mix of snow, sleet, hail, and absolutely frigid temperatures. By choosing to move in the summer, you get to avoid all that. A summertime setting will likely see the sun shining brightly on the day you arrive at your new home ready to live in it. Can you imagine a better scenario? We certainly cannot.
Summertime is Garage Sale Time
As you prepare yourself for the move, you’ll likely run into a lot of possessions you either forgot about but want to get rid of entirely. Luckily for you, the summer is a great time to host a garage sale. Plaster signs promoting your garage sale about your neighborhood and soon enough you’ll have folks flooding your yard looking to make a purchase. Not only does this help rid you of excess belongings, it’ll also put some extra bills in your pocket. That’s certainly a win-win right before the big moving day.
The beautiful thing about summer is that the sun typically doesn’t set until after 8 p.m. The moving process can be all-encompassing for months leading up to move-in day but when it’s time to get down to business, most people want the process to be done in a single day. With the extra hours of daylight afforded to you in the summertime, it’s the perfect mix to getting your move done smoothly and quickly.
While summer is a busy season for moving, it’s usually your best option. The weather is nice, for the most part, and your kids will have more flexible schedules since school is no longer in session.
