As the holidays quickly approach, you may have put the thought of purchasing a home out of your mind – at least until after the new year. But the reality is that there can actually be a number of nice benefits to moving during the holiday season.
One of the biggest perks is that you could find highly motivated sellers who are seeing little traffic, and would be happy to accept a lower (yet reasonable) offer price in order to get their home sold.
In addition, other than moving on the actual day of a holiday, moving companies are not typically busy during this time of the year. So, it is possible that you could get an “off peak” discount rate.
If you have children that are away at college during the bulk of the year, moving during the holidays can also provide you with some additional helping hands if they’re on semester break. This, in turn, could end up saving you both time and money.
Likewise, during the holiday season, it may be easier for you and / or your spouse to take some time off work. This can allow you to focus on the move, without having to worry about missing important work-related meetings, conferences, and deadlines like you would during other times of the year.
