June and July are the most active months in Oakville real estate, which means it’s the perfect time to buy and sell your home! It gives you enough time between the kids being out of school for summer break and your own vacation. With great dry warm weather you’ll be able to move without worrying about bad weather, making the kids adjust to a new neighbourhood, whther it be South or North Oakville homes for sale. If you're holding off until later, you’ll find that early spring (February and March) is also a great time to sell your home, and the best days to buy a home are Easter and Christmas Day.
When is the Best Time to Sell Oakville Real Estate?
The best time to sell is almost always a couple weeks before and after Canada Day. People are loving the weather, they’re in great moods! The grass will be green, the sun’s shining and it’s a good time to sell some property. Since the Toronto real estate market is booming and prices are beginning to soar, you’ll find more and more people coming to Oakville looking for homes. You’ll be able to upsell the fact that they’ll have all the room they need, are close enough to commute and best of all Oakville is the safest community in all of Ontario. It’s a great place to live and you can use this to your advantage to make sure your Oakville real estate sells.
When is the Best Time to Buy Oakville Real Estate?
When you’re looking to buy Oakville real estate, you’re going to have a few more options than you would if you were selling it! Like above, summer is a great time to buy a home; you’ll have enough breathing room to get the kids settled before school starts back up again. Holidays are also an excellent option when you’re trying to find a great home too! Easter and Christmas Day are two of the best days to buy a home (because who else is shopping for a house?!)
Know What You Want Before You Shop
Knowing what you want and what you need before you start shopping for Oakville real estate is important! If you start shopping even on great days when prices are the best but you don’t know what you want, you’re not going to be able to find the right home. Make a list of the things you wish your current home had, the things that it has now that you don’t want. Know what you want before you start looking at houses so you don’t try and force your needs to fit inside a house.
