5 Reasons To Move During the Summer
Did you know that the summer months are among the busiest for apartment hunting in Boston? When you think about it, the kids are out of school, the weather is bearable, and schedules are a bit more flexible. But what exactly makes the summertime the best time to move in Boston? Here are 5 reasons that may encourage you to start your apartment hunt with Forest Properties this season!
1. Sunshine > Snow
Let’s start off by stating the most obvious reason to move in the summer… no snow! Managing winters in the Boston area is a handful to begin with, so why add an entire move from one apartment to another on top of it? Whether you’re moving DIY or hiring a moving team, the summer heat definitely trumps cold weather, icy roads, and slippery sidewalks.
Pro Tip: If you’re aiming to move in the summer, start your apartment hunt in the early spring. This will give you more time to explore options, available units at Cloverleaf Apartments, and plenty of time to pack!

2. Peak Real Estate Season
For all the reasons why you should move in the summer, there are just as many factors that support this peak time in real estate. Here are a few:
- College students are preparing for the upcoming semester
- Parents are looking to enroll kids for school before September
- Increase of seasonal work (and employees relocating)
If you’re making plans to move in the summer with the help of a professional moving team, remember to book fast and early (The Other Guys is a favorite of Boston Magazine!). With peak season upon us, moving companies are in high demand. Another option is to phone a friend (or a few!) and weigh the possibility of a DIY-style move.
3. School’s Out for Summer
If you ask kids what the best part of summer is, they will most likely reply with summer break. If you ask parents the same question when preparing for a move, they may respond with the same answer!
The most popular reason for moving during the summer with kids is that your move will not disturb their academic year, after school activities, and sporting events. This is especially true if your move involves settling into a new school district. This gives both children and parents a chance to adjust to new routines before September rolls around.

4. Have a Yard Sale
Besides moving season, the summer months are also yard sale season. If you’re downsizing from a single family home to an apartment at The Parkside, hosting a yard sale at your current address will help minimize the amount of stuff you’ll need to pack before moving. For example, if you’re moving from a 4-bedroom home to a 2-bedroom apartment, selling extra furniture is essential. Plus, why not make a little extra money while getting rid of unwanted items?
