Is There a Best Time to Move?

When we move, we always want to make sure we’re finding the best space for us. However, best space doesn’t always mean the best option and could also mean finding the best space at the right price. So if you are if you’re looking to find the best options and the best prices, it’s important you know the right time look for them.

Time to MoveIf you are looking for the largest range of housing options, then you’re going to want to search between May and September. Most Americans move during this period mainly because kids are starting or graduating college. Due to this, there is a great deal of turnover in houses and apartments during these months, meaning you will have more options to choose from.

However, as previously mentioned, this is also the busiest period in terms of moving which means you won’t be the only one moving – or competing for the same locations. With so many options and people searching at this time of year, a lot of people could be lusting after the same unit or house as you, meaning that you need to be prepared to act quickly once you find the right spot.

On the other hand, if you are looking for the best possible deal, then October through April is when you should be conducting your search. While the spring through fall months offer a high level of apartment turnover, the winter months do not. This means any available properties at this time of year are usually put up due to extenuating circumstances, and renters are eager to get tenants to fill their vacancy.

While conducting your search during this time, keep in mind that you’ll tend to find a better deal on an apartment in markets that have a greater supply of housing than demand. So do your research and see what areas have a lot of spaces to offer and you might just find a great deal.
