Moving is never a fun experience, but there are things that can make it more bearable. And moving all of your earthly belongings during a snowstorm is just plain miserable. Whether it's your schedule or the weather, many people find summer to be the best time to move.
Plenty of Sun. On average, Reno has 252 days of sun each year. The national average is only 205 days of sun. That chance increases significantly during the summer months. If you're pulling a full day or weekend of moving, you'll get more daylight and less chance of wet weather during the summer.
Kids Aren't in School. This might be the biggest reason why summer moves are most popular. Moving during the summer helps kids maintain their routines and gives them a chance to settle in before the school year begins.
College Moves. The first day of fall 2019 classes at University of Nevada, Reno is August 27. That means students will be lining up their housing before then. Graduation for most programs was in mid-May. So students will be moving both in and out of the area during the next few months.
Work Transfers. In many industries, summer is the slowest season of the year, so companies will often transfer employees during this time. Because it's easier for families with children at home to move during the summer further enforces this trend.
Hot Selling Season. Because of the above mentioned reasons, lots of people are selling and buying during the summer months. So if you're a buyer, you'll have more options for homes. If you're a seller, you'll have more potential buyers in the summer.
