You have probably heard the buzz on the street about the brisk market in Texas but is it the right time for your family to make the move?
Most believe that the best time for moving is the summer months. This is primarily due to school schedules and work flexibiliy. Moving in the summer gives children time to adjust to their new home and neighborhood before they begin at their new calendar year. In contrast, it also means more possible competition securing and selling your home.
In contrast, others believe that moving during the middle of the school year is the best time. The thought is that the teachers will be able to give your children more attention than they would at the beginning of the school year. Also, your child might be able to meet new friends before summer starts. Of course, each child is different and only you know what is best for your family.
If your looking for financial savings, some of the best months to move are November through January. This is when moving companies are the slowest. The flip side is this is also when your kids are in school and most people don’t want to move right before the holidays.
Another savings tip is to plan your move mid month, this will often get you the lowest moving rates. The beginnings and ends of months are typically the busiest times for movers and their rates can often reflect this.
The best days of the week to move are Monday through Thursday. Most people plan their moves for the weekend, when they are not working, so any given moving company will likely have the fewest reservations during the week. Therefore, you will get the best price.
While these are general tips for moving, there are other special considerations to be made for when to plan your move, only you will know if it feels right.
