Perhaps, you are planning on having your new family home built soon, but you aren’t yet quite sure exactly when is the ideal time to move out/in. Or it may be you have already decided on a season or month when you want to relocate but aren’t sure how long it will take to custom build your new home OR sell your current residence.

Here is some timely, helpful advice to help you better plan and organize your upcoming transition!

When Is The Best Time To Relocate?

There are numerous factors that can affect your decision on the ideal time to relocate. But the most common time of year for moving is summertime and for good reason.

Summer gives you good weather, for the most part. It may be a bit hot and sunny, but at least you avoid the cold and the rain, which are the two worst weather elements when trying to move all your household goods – especially if moving long-distance.

Also, the kids are out of school during the summer and are between grades, which means they don’t have to transition mid-school year. And it also gives you the option of simply combining your move with your summer vacation!

When Should I Start Building My Dream Home?

You say, “I want my new home built and move-in ready by this summer.” If so, how early should you start having your dream home built?

In general, it can take 6 months to a year to custom-build a new home. The exact time will vary depending on the size and complexity of your new home, the weather, city zoning, and the remoteness of the location.

Talk to a custom home builder in the Amarillo Area to find out how long the building you envision would likely take to build from start to finish.

How Long Does It Usually Take To Sell A House?

Typically, it takes only a couple of months to sell a listed home, but it is not unusual for delays of 6 months or more to occur.

That’s why it often makes sense to opt for a home trade-in plan to streamline the transition process. A home trade-in program lets you synchronize your move-out and move-in date, avoid paying a realtor, and avoid possibly having to carry two mortgages for a time.

Experience Homes can speed up the moving process by beginning construction on your new home with as little as $500 down (or by using home equity for the down payment) and by assisting you in finding needed financing. They also offer a convenient home trade-in program. To learn more, contact Experience Homes today!
