Summer or the dry season is a great time to go and see houses, the sun is shining, everything is in bloom and houses generally look their best. However, the best time for a buyer to purchase a home is during the rainy season.
A continual downpour will help reveal a whole host of issues that sunny weather hides. From the house to the surrounding environment the rainy season will give you the opportunity to see a property in the most honest manner possible. In this two-part post, we look at six reasons you should buy a home during the rainy season.
An opportunity to bargain
Not many people will be on the hunt for a property during the rainy season meaning less competition on the market and a little more room to negotiate on the prices. This is especially true if the sellers are in a hurry to move on, and since you’re buying during the rainy season you’ll be able to scout the quality of the property so you won’t be stuck with a dud.
You can focus on the side of the house that gets the worst of the weather
Regardless of location there will always be one side of the house that bears the brunt of the bad weather and viewing during the rainy season will give you a chance to see this. Why is this important you ask? Because this is the side of the house that is likely to have issues so pay close attention.
You can check how surrounding infrastructure handles the bad weather
During your house hunt, be sure to take note of the surrounding infrastructure during the rainy season. Do the roads flood? How is the traffic? Is the power affected in anyway and if so how often does this occur? Are the mobile networks stable? These questions are essential for ensuring your safety and comfort in your new home during the rainy season.
