Why to Buy & Move Fall 2019 in the Triangle

Thinking about buying and moving to Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill or Holly Springs? While summer can seem like the opportune time to home buy, it should be argued that fall proves to be the best season to move due to multiple financial and logistical reasons. Here are our top reasons to choose to buy, relocate and move this fall:

Falling Prices. As a homebuilder, we generally choose to begin seasonal pricing incentives beginning in late September and early October. We have observed that the Triangle real estate market responds well to new homes finished in late summer priced extremely competitive going into autumn months. Home prices tend to fall due to builders pushing for remaining summer inventory to sell. There are always a handful of homes that are completed at the end of summer and are perfect for prospective buyers who may have missed summer buying opportunities. We specifically incentivize our inventory homes with competitive fall pricing that allows homebuyers to buy, move and settle-in before the holiday season, which alludes to the next reason to buy this fall…

Holiday Hustle & Bustle. A majority of homebuyers tend to purchase and move during the summer season due to lax schedules with work and school. Folks also choose to move in June, July and August since these months contain little to no major holidays. Scheduling appointments with a builder, real estate agent and mortgage lender for tours, walkthroughs and closings during Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years can simply be a nightmare. Buying in the fall allows individuals and families to accomplish the entire home buying experience right before the holiday madness. September, October and early November can also be more ideal for buyers who have busier summer calendars and more streamlined autumn schedules. Not to mention that moving boxes in the cool crisp air is a winner around here…

Moving Day. While moving during the slow and steady summertime can seem ideal, anyone who has lived through a North Carolina summer knows it means one thing: humidity. Summers in the Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill area are susceptible to intense heat and extremely sticky air. Simply walking from the front door to a car can induce one to be drenched in sweat! This is why we believe that the most opportune time to physically move is in the fall. The manual labor of moving furniture and boxes can almost be enjoyable in low comfortable temperatures. The Triangle also tends to have dryer fall weather, which means you are less likely to be caught in a downpour the day you move to your new home. Furthermore, moving companies such as Two Men and a Truck, College Hunks and All My Sons Moving have peak seasons in the summer, so booking movers in the fall for specific dates should not be an issue.
