We all know that the spring season is usually one of the busiest times of the year for the housing market in general, especially down here in sunny Tampa Bay, Florida. But as the weather continues to heat up and the days drag on just a little bit longer, summer can also be a good time to buy a Tampa home despite countless myths out there that say otherwise. And to prove it, here are 3 simple reasons why you might consider starting your home search, well, right now…
Less Buyer Competition
With so many home buyers locking down a new place to live in the spring time, chances are you’ll be facing less buyer competition when searching for a new Tampa home in the summer time, which means you might run into a more motivated seller or lessen the risk of a bidding war. And in either case, that could sometimes mean big, big savings.
School’s Out For The Summer
Moving can be stressful, plain and simple. So if you can find a new place sometime during the summer when the kids are out of school, it might make your life a little easier during the entire home buying process. Or at the very least, you’ll be disrupting their daily lives a little less, which is always a good thing, right?
Sellers Get Serious in the Summer
If a home just hit the market during the busy spring season and failed to sell during what’s widely considered a busy time of the year, a little bit of panic may set in and you might come across a much more motivated seller. And of course the longer a home has been sitting on the market, the more creative you can get with an initial offer.
