Pros and Cons of Moving to El Paso in the Fall

Moving to a new homeBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Moving, anytime of the year, might be equal elements exciting and stressful. Moving in the fall presents its own distinctive perks as well as challenges. A lot of households are finding that relocating in the autumn season results in a better, more pleasant changeover; others, as a result of unique circumstances, choose to hold off until a better time. As professional movers in El Paso, we'd like to discuss with you some advantages and disadvantages associated with relocating during the autumn season:


1. The weather is typically good

If you choose to move during the summer months, you could probably have to address high temps along with humidity. In other words, you may perspire plenty while you load and unload your stuff. However, the winter season conditions might make moving frigid, miserable, and even dangerous.

The autumn is a popular time to move since you steer clear of extremes of cold or hot. Autumn temperatures are typically pleasant, and you most likely won't have to be concerned about snowy or slippery driving conditions.

2. Professional movers could have cheaper prices plus more availability

Summer is normally the peak season for moving. Considering that fall comes after peak season, you may be able to get a better deal when employing a moving company in El Paso. Additionally, the moving company could be in a better spot to satisfy your moving dates, given that their schedule is not as packed.

3. Home prices may be reduced after peak moving season

Another advantage of moving through the autumn is that the costs of buying a new home might be less than at other times of the year. If you plan on purchasing a house, you might be able to find a good deal on your new dwelling.


1. It may be more difficult to sell your home

If you don't currently rent and haven't sold your residence yet, then fall might be a tough time of the year to get a purchaser to close on it - at least for the price you desire. There might be a couple of factors behind this. For example, many young families do not wish to make the move during the fall as it's the beginning of the school year, and they do not want to abruptly uproot their young students. Moreover, potential homebuyers who are employed in the educational field are going back to work and may not have the time or desire to carry on their search.

2. It could be difficult to "settle into" a new house just before the holidays

Many people are consumed by the holiday season, either on an individual or a business level. Moving to a new location can be anxious at any time but might end up being even more so right before the most busy time of the year (at least for many individuals). Additionally, for those who have youngsters, you will need to really coordinate the move so they can transition into a new place with marginal stress - and fall probably are not the best time to make that materialize.

3. The elements could be unpredictable

Fall conditions are normally enjoyable, and without any extremes in temp or humidity. However, there may be still an element of unpredictability regarding fall weather patterns. For instance, if you are moving to or from a northern climate, there's always the chance that a sudden snowstorm may strike at the end of autumn - potentially in November, or even October! Additionally, there is a chance that you will have to deal with an unexpected heat wave, or rapid declines in temperature.

Of course, whether you elect to move in the autumn or not, you should always consider using the assistance of professional movers to make your transition as effortless as is possible.
