Nothing Beats Springtime in the South
Springtime in the South is simply amazing. With warmer weather, spring blooms and a wealth of outdoor activities opening up, it’s nature’s way of telling us we picked the right place to live. It’s also the best time to look for a new home. And here’s why.
By April, property listings are springing up like azaleas. It’s simply a much easier time to get people into homes and properties. Plus, communities look their best when the lawn is green, the flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping and the sky is blue. There’s more time for house hunting, as well. With longer days, there are more hours to see homes in full light, allowing you to check out every detail.
Buy a Home Before The New School Year
Another reason to look for a home in the spring is school. If you’ve got a family, you’ll probably want to be in your new home by the beginning of the new school year. That way, you can figure out transportation to school and all of the kids’ after-school activities from your new home. Plus, it’ll give your kids a chance to make friends in your new neighborhood before they start school. With a standard transaction taking 60 to 90 days to close, you’ll need to be in contract by mid-June. Which means you’ll want to get serious about house hunting in April and May.
There’s also a financial benefit. With the holiday bills paid, tax refunds in hand and summer vacation in the future, you may have the added funds you’ll need for extra inspections and moving costs.
So, start planning your house hunting now. You’ll definitely want to check out builders with a range of homestyles in a range of communities. Lennar offers homes in locations from Cumming to McDonough and everywhere in between. Plus, their homes come with everything you need, even Wi-Fi throughout. Which can be a big consideration when you’re trying to get the best value for your money. Happy hunting this spring!
