1. More accessible properties
During the summer, all leases end and for landlords and tenants, this is the perfect time to move. Indeed, many property offers are available on the market. Nevertheless, the number of available dwellings is high and the demand is also excessively high. On the other hand, during the winter, fewer homes are available for rent or sale, but there are also few requests.
During the winter, you are more likely to find accommodation at an attractive price than during the summer season. Faced with declining demand, homeowners tend to reduce the price of housing at this time of year, for fear of not renting or selling. During the winter, bargains are appearing on the real estate market!
2. More flexible dates
In summer, landlords and tenants rush to a mover as soon as the lease is signed. In fact, in the face of strong demand, movers are quickly booked and last-minute removals are almost impossible.
In winter, the low season of moves allows homeowners and renters to take the time to compare and choose their moving company. In addition, there is a good chance your moving date will be available, even for last-minute moves. In addition, movers are more flexible in the event of a snowstorm, in order to shift the date of your move accordingly.
3. Lower prices
Moves in June, July, August and September are the most expensive because of strong demand from moving companies. When only a few dates are still available, movers can afford to raise prices quickly, knowing that their last dates will be reserved.
In winter, the trend reverses. Movers have greater availability and a lower clientele. Throughout the winter season, moving companies reduce their prices, in order to get more customers. Your bargaining power is stronger.
However, take the time to learn about the moving company and select a company that is used to winter moves. For this, a high-performance equipment adapted to the weather conditions is required. It is also essential that all your furniture is well protected so that it is not affected by the cold.
