Benefits to Moving in the Fall
1. Cooler Temperatures
You can expect sunny days during the summer months, however, you can also expect it to be hot and humid. One benefit to moving in the fall is the nice cool weather. The fall is a wonderful time to move because you avoid the humidity and heat of the summer as well as the cold, icy weather of the winter season.
2. Less Competition
The busiest moving season is summer, and with that comes competition. The summer season is highly competitive and if you are selling your home or condo, that may be a good thing. However, if you are buying this could be a hindrance, as homes may be more expensive due to bidding wars. If you plan to move in the fall, you won't have to worry as much about your dream condo being snatched up before you have a chance to put in an offer. You'll have more buying power, as fewer people tend to move in the fall.
3. Lower Cost
Summer is a popular time to move, which means moving companies are in high demand. Often times the price will reflect this high demand. After the busy season is over, you could see more reasonable rates. You could also have better luck finding time and dates that work with your schedule, as fewer people are trying to move at the same time.
Tips For A Fall Move
1. Dress Accordingly
The weather starts to get a bit cooler in the fall. However, you are still moving around and working up a sweat while moving, so make sure you dress appropriately. You may want to wear layers, so you can take a layer off if you get too hot. It may also be a good idea to bring an extra jacket if it gets chilly as you are taking a break. Although it may not storm as much as it does in the summer, there is still always a chance of rain, so plan accordingly.
2. Be Careful of Leaves
Fall leaves are gorgeous to look at, but could lead to potential danger while moving large boxes or heavy furniture. Leaves, especially when wet, can be very slippery. Make sure you clear your path of leaves before you begin moving to avoid slipping and damaging your possessions, or worse, injuring yourself.
3. Plan Ahead
This is a good idea no matter what season you move in, but it will be especially helpful in the fall. Making sure your utilities are all set up before you move into your new home can help make your move seamless. In the fall it is important to make sure your utilities are all in working order as it is colder and gets dark earlier than in the summer. You do not want to be freezing the first night in your new home because your heater doesn't work.
