As we approach summertime, that means it’s time to start thinking about buying your new home! While there are benefits to buying a home at any time of year, there are some unique advantages to making your purchase during the summer months. Here are three reasons why summer is the best time to buy a home:
- Families Have More Free Time
- More Flexibility in Scheduling Showings
- More Properties on the Market
The weather is warm, the sun is out, and there’s finally a break in your work schedule. Summertime might just be the perfect time for you to buy a home. But before you start touring properties and logging onto real estate websites, there are a few things you should know about the home-buying process. Namely, that getting a building inspection on your potential property is an absolute must.
A building inspection is an assessment of a property’s condition. Our qualified inspectors will look at the property’s foundation, interior and exterior roof, structures on the site such as garages, car ports and sheds, including other factors such as drainage, retaining walls and fencing, and more to make sure that everything is up to code and in good working order. Getting a building inspection is one of the most important steps in buying a home—after all, you don’t want to purchase a house only to find out later that it needs expensive repairs.
But even if the building inspection comes back clean, that doesn’t mean you should rush into signing on the dotted line. There are lots of other factors to consider before buying a home, like your budget, your future, and your current lifestyle. So, take your time, do your research, and consult with one of our qualified building inspectors before making one of the biggest purchases of your life.
Buying a home is a big decision—but it doesn’t have to be a stressful one. If you’re thinking about purchasing a property this summer, make sure to get one of our qualified building inspectors as part of your due diligence. Our building inspectors are trained to ensure the property is in great condition to make your purchase worth it. At the end, we care about where you spend your money, and making the right purchase is important to us.
