Summer doesn’t just bring blue skies and sunshine. Seasonal changes also impact the real estate industry. Here’s how the housing market usually shifts in summertime:

Families are on the move. 
To keep from disrupting the school year, parents often plan moves for summer, which kicks off a busy season.

Homes sell faster. 
Facing a three-month window, buyers are motivated and competition is fierce. If you’re a buyer, work with a loan officer to get pre-qualified for a mortgage and be ready to move quickly.

Prices and inventory tend to increase. 
Whenever there’s an influx of buyers, prices go up. But more sellers listing their homes could mean a higher supply of homes to choose from.
