Purchasing a new construction home can be a rewarding experience any time of year and in any season of life. However, there are many reasons behind why some say summer could be an ideal time for you to purchase.


1.      Great Weather Conditions

Pleasant weather allows for a smooth construction process. Builders can work more efficiently without interruptions that can come with colder or wetter months. Summer sunny days mean fewer delays and a more predictable timeline for completion.


2.      Time for Moving

If you have younger children, moving during the summer means less disruption to your kid’s school year. It gives them time to settle into the new home and neighborhood before the new school year begins. Additionally, many people this time of year have longer weekends or more flexibility to schedule the moving process in their busy lives. This can reduce any stress associated with packing, moving, and setting up your new home.


3.      Immediate Enjoyment of Outdoor Spaces

Summer is the perfect time to set up and enjoy your new patios, covered porches, and more in your new backyard. You can immediately take advantage of these features in your new home. Plus, it allows you to see the full potential of your landscaping and make sure your garden is in full bloom for your first couple months in your new home.


4.      Active Community Life

Summer is the time for community activities and events, providing amazing opportunities to meet your new neighbors and integrate into the community. If you are in one of our amenities filled communities, you will even get a jump start in reaping all the neighborhood benefits which ranges from pools, playgrounds, walking trails and more.


5.      Favorable Market Dynamics

If you need to sell your current home, the summer market is the way to go. Typically, this time of year is more active and can help you sell your home faster. The increased activity in both the buying and selling markets can also lead to a more coordinated transition from your old home to your new home.
