Is Spring the Best Season to Buy a Home?

If the winter season had you reaching for the blanket and hiding underneath it for as long as you could, we feel your pain. Winter tends to bring out the homebodies inside us all. It tends to be one of the most stressful seasons as well. From the holidays to the beginning of a new year, the many changes we experience between the months of December and March can have us reaching for anything that feels familiar. Buying a new home certainly isn’t one of them. So if you put off your home buying plans, that’s okay. The warmer days are ahead and it’s time to pick right back up!

Why Buy a Home in the Spring? The Weather is in Our Favor

Yes, the Sun City is fortunate to have mild winters but we’re also not excluded from the cold temperatures that brace the majority of the nation in the peak of the winter. Driving to different open house events when the weather isn’t ideal can put a damper on your plans, perhaps even causing you to leave early or completely skip one. With warmer weather comes more energy and more willingness to go outside. Moreover, when we push our clocks an hour ahead on March 10th, we’ll have more sunlight to take advantage of.

You Can Really Hone In On Your Concepts for a Home

If all goes according to plan, you’ll have a couple of solid warm months to get your home situated. Whether your plans include landscaping for the front and backyard or simply moving all of your belongings, you can achieve the most during the spring, before the Sun City warms up.

A Note of Caution: Spring Also Brings About Competition

With more people making their way to open houses and stopping at the same homes for sale as you, you could be faced with stiff competition. If you are serious about locking down a home, we suggest you get pre-approved for a home loan and begin securing the funds for that down payment. Since it’s possible to see a home one day and then it’s sold the next, you’ll want to be one step ahead of the game. Let your realtor know exactly what you have in mind and how soon you’d like to move in so that he or she can be prepared to act on your behalf.
