5 Reasons to Buy a Home in August

What do flowers, skiing and whale watching all have in common? They all have seasons. But what about homebuying? If you’re looking for ideal inventory levels, minimal competition and gorgeous sunny moving conditions, August just may be your home market sweet spot. Here’s 5 reasons to start packing and get ready to purchase that new home in August:

Less Competition

One of the most trying parts of the homebuying process is the search to find that perfect home, the one that checks every box from beautiful countertops to a prime homesite location and outdoor living space to enjoy evening sunsets and morning coffee. So, when you are lucky enough finally find the one, the last thing you want is another buyer with your same taste to purchase it first! April through June are the most popular time to purchase a home. So, with peak season coming to a halt, August marks a prime opportunity for buyers to shop the market with minimal competition!

Just in Time for the School Year

Even in the most ideal scenario, moving is a task that affects the entire household. When it comes to the kids, things such as, sport seasons, pick-up and drop-off logistics and potential school transfers are top of mind. Planning your move for August may allow just enough time to get the kids enrolled and in class by the start of the new school. But even if the school year has already started, students will only miss minimal time in their new school. Plus, a new home might even have more space for homework – or allow kids to have their own room!

Settled in By the Holidays

In homes far and wide the holiday season is one of the most beloved times of year. The last thing you want is for the stresses and undertakings of moving to taint your holiday spirit. Planning your relocation for August allows ample time to settle into your new abode before the holiday seasons kick off. Whether you’re hosting gatherings or simply looking forward to creating cherished memories in your new home, having that extra time to adjust and make it your own adds a touch of comfort and joy to the holiday season. 

Natural Lighting and Landscape

Interior design and landscaping are a huge part of making a new home your own. With peak sunny weather and prime gardening season right around the corner, August is an ideal month to move and put your personal touches on your new space. There’s nothing like seeing the sun peak through the window and shine perfectly on your carefully curated living space. As sightly as the fall and winter months can be, August’s sunny skies and clear views of the space and lighting allow for ideal furniture arrangement and wall fixture planning.

Enjoy the Last of Warm Weather

Coast to coast, the warm temperatures of late summer are some of the best weather conditions of the year, making August an ideal time to navigate the ins and outs of moving day. Better yet, the comfortable late summer temperatures offer a perfect opportunity to take a summer “staycation” in your new home and explore your new community. Taking some time off work to enjoy and curate your new home is a gift that will keep on giving! 

Buying a home in August offers a slew of benefits that make it an ideal time to make your move. Overall, buying a new Lennar home in August not only provides practical advantages, but also creates a smooth and enjoyable experience for you and your loved ones. So, seize the opportunity and embark on your homeownership journey this month!
