5 Reasons Why Summertime is the Best Time to Buy a Home
Posted by Darren Daltorio | Posted on 07/15/2018
Some of the very best things happen during the summer – especially in Los Angeles! The ocean is warmer and waves are bigger, the temps average in the 70’s, there is rarely a rainy day, outdoor movies and concerts are everywhere, and festivals are in full swing. Summer is also the best time to see your real estate broker and buy a house in the South Bay area. Here’s why:
1. Your Kids Have Finished Last School Year
No doubt it’s not easy to switch schools in the middle of the year. That’s why summer is such a great time to look for and buy a house in LA. Your kids will be happy that they have finished the school year with their old friends and will be more excited about joining you on the search for their new perfect home. When school starts, they will be settled in and ready to make new friends at their new school. Families who are ready to move to South Bay or anywhere in the Los Angeles area prefer buying residential real estate and moving to their new home in the summer, before the school year begins.
2. See Better Longer
Most of us still have to work a regular shift during the summer and that can make finding the time to look at homes challenging. But summers solve that challenge! With the longer days, we have extra hours of daylight so that we can still see the homes in their best, most attractive light! You’ll be able to really inspect the South Bay homes you visit and have a great understanding of what you are buying. You can also have a better view of the neighborhood where the home is located as well as the area schools, restaurants, grocery story and other surroundings.
3. More Real Estate Available
Los Angeles real estate brokers keep busy during the summer as more people want to sell their homes. More homes means there is more selection for you and chances are they are motivated to sell quickly. Millea is one of the most well-known and respected Realtors in the South Bay area and is in “high gear” throughout the spring and summer as he finds clients the right property investments for their portfolio.
4. Time For Renovations
Buying a house in the summer is great for those who want or need to spend some time fixing up the real estate so that it is exactly what you want. No matter if your new purchase just needs new carpet and a fresh coat of paint, or it needs a completely new kitchen, summer gives you the chance to make improvements to your new home while the weather is still nice and the kids are still out of school. Then you can move into your finished masterpiece!
5. High Home Demand
Sure there are more homes on the market in the spring and summer, but that’s to fill the high demand from people like you out there looking. Chances are that the sellers are serious and willing to take your offer seriously so that they can move and get into their new place a soon as possible.
