Buying a home is the most important investment you will ever make. There are many reasons why you may want to move. Whether you’re looking for a bigger home, downsizing, or looking to change neighbourhoods, the spring season is the perfect time to buy a home. Here’s why:
Ready for Summer
Imagine buying a home in late fall, and having to wait months upon months until you can enjoy your new backyard retreat, tend to that nice garden, or take a dip in the pool. When you buy a home in the spring, you have time to get settled into the house and get fully prepared for the fun experience of summer in your new home. By the time the closing date rolls around, you’ll be all set for a summer of fun in your new digs.
Less School Disruption
Late spring is one of the best times to buy a home if you are looking to minimize school disruption for children. Especially if you will be changing neighbourhoods, which necessitates changing schools, moving at other times of year can be quite problematic. A late spring home purchase means your children will be close to summer vacation by the time you move in. The whole family will be completely settled in and comfortable in your awesome new home by the time the next school year comes around.
Easier Access to Services
Do you want to rent a moving van on July 1st or try hiring movers for a September 1st move? Good luck! These are peak times for moving services, with university students and apartment renters driving up demand. Fortunately, when you buy a home in the spring you don’t have to compete with this high demand. Rates are more affordable and schedules are more open in the spring, with everything from moving companies to carpet cleaning to appliance delivery. Save yourself time, stress, and money with a spring move.
This spring is a great time to buy a home in Ottawa. Interest rates are excellent right now, and you’d be wise to take advantage while it lasts. There is also a lot of variety on the market right now, meaning you are more likely to find the right home for you and your family at a reasonable price.
Moving in the winter is no fun at all. From attempting to park the moving van next to head-high snowbanks to having to carry in boxes in freezing temperatures, the whole process can be quite miserable. When you buy a home in the spring, you avoid these problems all together. Have a more pleasant move without the snow, frigid temperatures, and dangerous driving conditions of winter.
