Why winter is a good time to move home

While the chilliest season may not be the conventional choice for moving, it certainly has its perks that can make your moving experience a smoother one. So, don’t let the chill deter you! Here are just some of the key reasons why winter could be the best season to make your move.
New year, new possibilities
Winter buyers are often motivated by New Year’s resolutions and the promise of a fresh start, so tap into this market while it’s still there! You could also embrace the “New Year, New Me” mantra by making a fresh start in a new home. The winter season symbolises a time of renewal, making it an ideal period for a significant life change. Embrace the quieter moving season, and let the winter landscape be the backdrop to your exciting new chapter. 
You won’t break a sweat

Moving requires a good deal of manual labour, and while the weather is cooler, you’re less likely to overheat. This is also important if you’re moving with children and pets, as keeping them cool in the heat can slow things down. The cooler temperatures make the physical aspect of moving much more bearable, allowing you to focus on the excitement of your new beginning without the added discomfort.
Get settled before summer
Summertime is ideal for kicking back and enjoying your surroundings, so it makes sense to get your move out the way now and enjoy the fruits of your labour when the weather is right. Moving in winter also allows you to settle into your new home well before the hustle and bustle of the summer months. By the time warmer weather arrives, you’ll be fully acclimated to your new surroundings, making it easier to enjoy the outdoor activities and social events that come with the season.
You can show off your home’s energy efficiency

In winter, buyers are looking for someplace warm and cosy, and if your home has a high EPC rating, now is the time to show it off! Cold weather means the heating system will be put to the test, and potential buyers or guests will appreciate a warm and inviting environment. Highlighting your home’s insulation, efficient heating system, and draught-proof windows can make a lasting impression.
