As the weather starts to warm up in the greater Baton Rouge area, home buyers begin to emerge from their winter hibernation and start looking for their next dream home. Spring and summer are traditionally busy seasons for the housing market, and for good reason. Let’s explore why the warmer weather brings out home buyers and what you can expect if you’re looking to buy a home in the Baton Rouge area this spring or summer.
- More daylight hours mean more time to search for homes.
One of the biggest advantages of the spring and summer months is the longer days. With more daylight hours, home buyers have more time to search for homes and attend open houses. This makes it easier for those who work during the day to squeeze in a viewing or two in the evening.
- Good weather makes it easier to view homes.
In addition to longer daylight hours, the warmer weather makes it more pleasant to be outside, which is especially important when viewing homes. In the winter, homes can feel cold and dreary, which can make it difficult to envision yourself living there. However, in the spring and summer, homes are filled with natural light and look their best.
- Families with school-aged children want to move before the school year starts.
For families with school-aged children, the spring and summer months are the best time to move. This allows them to settle into their new home and neighborhood before the school year starts in the fall. For this reason, many families try to time their move to coincide with the end of the school year.
- Sellers are more likely to list their homes in the spring and summer.
Sellers also prefer to list their homes in the spring and summer months. This is because the warmer weather tends to bring out more buyers, which can lead to quicker sales and higher prices. Additionally, many sellers want to take advantage of the longer days and better weather to make any necessary repairs or improvements to their homes.
