Get ready for a Summer move with Homelink

Spring has long been the traditional time for moving home and while there is never really a bad time to sell up and move on, it is easy to see why many people are keen to move at this time of year. Selling and moving on in spring allows people to be in their new home by summer time, so this time of year is an active period for both buyers and sellers. If you want to plan ahead and make the most of the summer months, get ready for a summer move with Homelink.

When it comes to the property market, it is important to know that things don’t happen overnight. There are many factors that are involved with the speed of selling a property but even the best properties can take a few weeks or even months to go through the selling process. This is why one of the most important factors of selling up in time for summer is being prepared in spring. Working with Homelink to promote a property now is the ideal way to be on the market in time to have things wrapped up by the time summer rolls around.

Moving in the summer is convenient for many people
There are many reasons why people are looking to move in time for summer, or even at the start of summer, and a major reason is school holidays. There is a level of convenience moving property when you don’t need to worry about children’s education at the point. Some people will want to move at the start of summer so children’s education isn’t disrupted and some families will want to move so children are properly settled in time for a new school term so there are practical reasons for wanting to move at this time of year.

There is also the fact that it is more convenient for many adults to take holiday leave during the school holidays (perhaps relating to their work or the need to provide cover for watching their children anyway) so being able to move at summer makes sense for many people.

In preparing for a summer move, it is important to take advantage of the changing of the seasons and the improvement in weather. If you have a garden area, cultivating a bit of life and colour at your property can have a hugely positive impression. You should also look to freshen up your home as much as possible so open up windows and doors to create a cooler and more seasonal atmosphere in your home. In spring, there is an optimistic mood in the air and if you are looking for guidance on how best to present your home to take advantage of this mood change, come and speak to Homelink.

Moving home provides a chance for a fresh start but when you are ready to move in summer, you have the chance to make a fresh start at the most exciting and invigorating time of year.
