When is it Time to Move? Some guidelines to follow


With the arrival of the New Year and spring right around the corner, people in the Washington Metropolitan area may be asking the question “Is it time to move?” It is common knowledge in the real estate community that the best time to prepare for a move is during the winter months with household repairs, home improvements and renovations to your home.

Readying your home in winter is the best time, in order to put it up for sale during the busy spring and summer months which is the most convenient time to move. Typically, during the summer months kids are off from school and vacation can be scheduled, people pick this time to try and schedule a move.
