It’s summer time in Austin Texas and during this time of year most families have their kids out of school and they’ve left town for their vacations.

If you’ve been thinking about buying a home in Austin Texas, or elsewhere in the United States but aren’t sure if summer is a great time to buy or not this article will provide you with reasons why you should buy a home during the summer months.

Reason #1 – There’s More Inventory to Choose from During the Summer

Even though we had a warm winter in Austin many homeowners waited to list their homes until June and that means many listings are coming on the market right now, giving you more options to choose from than during other times of the year.

Reason #2 – Less Competition from Other Buyers

Yes, it’s true, summer is also a great time to buy a home because many people will be putting their home buying plans on hold until they get back from their summer vacations or the fall months when their kids are back in school.

Reason #3 – More Sellers Are Willing to Negotiate During the Summer

Another benefit that comes from buying a home during the summer is that you may find potentially softer prices because more sellers are willing to negotiate since there is less demand from buyers.

Reason #4 – You Will Have More Time to View Homes During the Summer

Last of all, but most important, when you search for homes during the summer months you will have more time to view homes thanks to longer days compared to viewing homes during the fall and winter months when you will have less time in the day due to Daylight Savings Time ending in November.
