5 Reasons to Buy a Home in Summer from Realtor.com

Summer is a hot time to buy and sell your home. Realtor.com recently summed up why this isn’t a reason to stay away and wait for it to cool off—it’s a popular time to buy because it’s a great time to buy! We’ll sum up their reasons below:

Watergrass 7465 web

1. Prices aren’t always higher. It’s a myth that prices are higher in the summer than the winter—home prices are mainly driven by the number of homes for sale in an area, interest rates, and the job market.

2. More inventory. Because it’s a popular time to buy and sell, you have more to choose from at this time. And at WaterGrass, you always have the chance to buy new from any of our incredible builders! We also have a great variety of move-in ready homes available.

3. Buying and selling simultaneously could be easier. If you have a home to sell before you buy, you will be more likely to have success with your sale when there are more buyers on the market. This could allow a seamless transition into your new home!

4. No school! If you have kids, you know that it’s less disruptive to move them before a new school year begins. Also, you can bring them with to learn about the home you are buying to help get everyone on board.
