The summer is here, and as temperatures rise, so do the number of houses for sale. For the California housing market, the next three months present a special opportunity for people who are eager to buy property in San Diego. In fact, summer is one of the busiest times of the year for both buyers and sellers. Competition is high between the months of April-July, with the number of properties sold reaching a peak in June. Due to the fast-paced nature of the housing market during this time, the summer has become a popular time to buy property, especially among people who value a rapid home-buying process.
If you’re uncertain if summer is the right time for you, here are a couple of things to consider when making your decision:
If you enjoy having a wide selection of properties to choose from, then you may want to consider buying during the late spring and early summer months. Many new properties are put on sale each day, which allows buyers to close a deal and settle into a new home quicker compared to other seasons when the market is slow and the total home inventory has decreased. A buyer is more likely to find their dream house—one that includes all the special features on their wish list—when properties are constantly being added. During this time, you can work closely with a Skoglin real estate agent to narrow down the options, so you can purchase a home that fits your needs and personality.
If you have kids, summer is also a great time to buy a home. School is out for three months, which means parents won’t have to worry about disrupting their children’s learning. During any other part of the year, parents may have to transfer their kids to a new school district and have them miss classes while the whole family moves to a new house. This process can be taxing on both the parents and children, who may already be nervous due to the change of scenery. Moving to another community during the summer allows children time to adjust to their environment, make new friends, explore the community, and start the academic year without any complications.In addition, some parents may want to bring their kids along to showing sand include them in the decision-making process. After all, buying a home is significant event for the whole family.
Southern California is known for its long days of sunshine. During this time, people who are buying property from outside of San Diego County can take advantage of the extra sunlight to assess the effects that weather has on certain properties or communities. For example, if you want to buy a home surrounded by large trees and a blooming garden, searching for a home between the months of April-June may be most convenient, because flowers are in full bloom. House-hunting during provide spring and early summer provide buyers a special opportunity to evaluate properties when they are most beautiful and it’s easier to see the future potential of each home.
