The Time to Buy is Now

Orange County is buzzing with residents soaking up the sun from San Clemente to Newport Beach. Summer’s almost here and its palpable in the air. As the anticipation for summer and the temperatures rise, so does the active inventory in Orange County, making it a great time for buyers to take action. The market is prime for making a purchase, and if you wait any longer, you’re not only going to have to combat other buyers, but you’ll be working against the heat too. Here are some of the benefits of buying a home before summer arrives.

3 Benefits of Buying a Home Before Summer

Best Time for Inventory

Right now in Orange County, there’s no better time to capitalize on the market and buy a home. The inventory is rising and will continue to rise until it peaks later this summer, usually mid-July or early August. When you’re buying a home, you want options. You don’t want to feel as though you’re settling. Taking action before summer gets here ensures that you’re going to have plenty of options as far as listings to consider. The more listings you have to consider, the happier you’re going to feel when you’re viewing your potential homes and deciding which one to put an offer on. More inventory typically means more competition, but that’s when you call in a top local real estate agent like Rosemary Hieber to help you stand out.

Beat the Heat

Summer is almost here and the temperatures are rising. Sunny 70 degree days will turn into 85 or 90 degree days and even the ocean breeze won’t provide the relief you would expect. Orange County gets pretty hot! And if you’re buying a home before summer, that also means you’re moving before summer. The cooler the weather is when you are moving and unpacking your home, the better off you’re going to be. If you act now, you can beat the heat that’s coming our way in the later summer months of July and August.

Ample Time to Acclimate

Moving is a big change. Even if you’re only moving from Laguna Niguel to Laguna Beach, you have to get acclimated to your surroundings and new environment. For some, that can be easier than others. But it takes time for everyone to acclimate to a new surroundings, adults and children alike. In order to try and make the transition easier for everyone involved, especially if you have children, you should move before the summer. It gives you ample time to get adjusted to your new home, neighborhood and city before school starts in the fall.
