What Is the Best Time to Move?

What Is the Best Time to Move?

Normally when we move, it is done out of necessity. A job is relocated, a family member becomes sick, or maybe we simply feel the need to start over. When this happens, it is normally not a task that we can take extended amounts of time with. If your job is relocating, you likely can’t ask for a few months to leisurely pack up and find a new place to live. They often want you to change as soon as possible. Even if you are waiting for the end of your lease, there is a set date that you need to move before. This doesn't always allow for the possibility of extra time. If you could choose, however, what would be the best time of the year to move?

Well the short answer to that is, it depends. It depends on many different factors, such as where you are moving from and too, and whether you are able or willing to pack and drive during some seasons. No one really wants to deal with packing everything up in the dead heat of summer, but most people also don’t want to have to worry about a snow storm while they are driving all of their furniture to their new home. It can be argued that there is no truly good time to move, but that it rather depends on what works better for you personally. That said, there are certain times that may be easier to move in than others.

Many people move during the summer and into the beginning of September. This is mostly to avoid uprooting kids in the middle of the year, and it also often has to do with college kids moving in for the upcoming school year. This means that there will likely be a lot of open apartments around the beginning of summer, but it also means that many landlords know that they can ask for a little bit more during this time. Studies have shown that it is cheaper rent-wise to move during the winter, but there is less choice. As with anything in life, there is a balance that needs to be struck. The best time to move for you is going to depend on your specific requirements, so let Talley help you find a new place at whatever time of year works best for you!
