Moving can definitely be a stressful time because there are so many small details you have to keep in mind. One important question you will ask yourself is what time of the year is the best time to move? Choosing one season over another can make a big difference in how smoothly your transition will go. Here are five reasons why summer is a great time to move! The Weather Cold weather with snow and icy roads can make winter moves unmanageable and can quickly become an impossible task. Summer weather is definitely more conducive to moving, and you’ll be able to life and move boxes without fear of slipping on any ice! School Is Out One of the best reasons for moving in the summer, especially for families with kids, is that the move will happen when school is not in session. Even if your new home is close by, it’s a good idea to wait until the kids are on summer vacation to move. Moving can be a big adjustment for kids so making the transition to your new home during the summer months will give them plenty of time to adapt. Work Schedule During the summer, work schedules are usually much more flexible when it comes to being able to take some time off. This flexibility will allow you to prepare more for the move and not be as stressed. If you’re able to take time off, that might be all the reason you need to plan your summer move! Yard Sale Season Chances are when you start to pack up your house you’re going to find some things you don’t want to take with you. Summer is the season of yard sales so if you plan your move right, this is a great way to get rid of the things that don’t make the cut for your new home. On the other hand, if you’re in need of something for the new house, a yard sale is a perfect place to find what you’re looking for at a cheaper price. Make someone else’s trash your very own treasure! Meeting the Neighbors Summer is a great time to hold a cookout. Once you get settled in, take advantage of the warm weather and invite your new neighbors over for some delicious food. This is a great way to get to know everyone in your new neighborhood! Summer is a great time to have a stress-free move. To save yourself some hassle, wait until the warmer months to make your move in your brand new home!
