Planning a move to Chicago? Like many others, you’re probably thinking about making your big move in the summer. Your kids may be on summer vacation and you can likely count on the summer weather. There are some advantages, however, to moving to Chicago in the spring. With some forethought and preparation, the spring could be your ideal time to move. The moving experts at UNITS Moving & Portable Storage of Chicago have listed the top three benefits to moving in the spring below.

Avoid the summer rush. Like we said, the most popular time to move almost anywhere in the country is the summer. Moving and storage services in the Chicago area typically become most expensive in the summer due to the high demand. Come September, and you’ll find that not only are these services less expensive, but that they’re also easier to schedule according to your needs.

Skip the sweat. We’re not sure if you’ve ever experienced a Chicago summer, but they can be a doozy. Rather than hauling your belongings in and out of your new home in the sweltering heat, think about moving during a crisp spring day with a nice cool breeze.

Hot housing markets. Yes, the house market is smaller in the spring. However, this can give you certain advantages. A smaller, less crowded market means you’ll have less pressure to make an offer. There’s less chance that you’ll enter a bidding war with another buyer. I think any home buyer can agree that a higher chance for an accepted offer is a tempting advantage!

Benefits aside, there are certainly some disadvantages to moving in the spring. For example, you might find that foliage and debris can get in your way or you may run into some inclement weather. These factors are easily mitigated with some preparation, though. Ultimately, the choice is yours!
