Yep, it’s summertime for backyard barbecues, lazy days at the beach, and sipping cold drinks on the patio. Luckily, in South Florida from Palm Beach to Jupiter Island, you can enjoy these summer activities all year round. And summer is a “hot” time to purchase a home as prices tend to drop in the summer months. Here are some tips and tricks to help you find your dream home in South Florida.
Get A Feel For The Ambiance And Energy Of the Neighborhood
Some home buyers want to find a lovely home in a quiet, mature community. Others may be searching for an active community with kids playing freely in yards and joggers, walkers, and cyclists circling the neighborhood. There’s good news: there are plenty of communities and neighborhoods in South Florida and a Tauber Real Estate Specialist can help you find the perfect one to suit your lifestyle.
Look At Neighborhood Amenities
Amenities in a neighborhood are important for many homebuyers, and you can easily check out a neighborhood’s amenities by driving through the area. Look for everything from a fitness center and community swimming pool to parks and hike and bike trails. Homebuyers may look online to see what a community or neighborhood has to offer, and your Tauber Real Estate Specialist can assist you with this research.
Remember- It’s Easier to Move with Kids
Kids are out of school in the summer, so if you’re planning a move, it’s the perfect time. Changing school districts can be stressful for both parents and kids, but choosing to move in the summer may help to ease the adjustment for the whole family.
Fewer Buyers Means Less Competition
In Florida, there is less inventory during the summer, but there are far less buyers looking at homes. That means less competition for you when making an offer on your dream home in South Florida.
Summer is the best time to buy if you’re looking for big savings. Savvy homebuyers know they can often negotiate the best deals in the summer because the housing market slows down a bit. Because so many people from Palm Beach to Jupiter Island head out of town to cooler climates, serious buyers have an edge, not only on price but on upgrades or amenities.
