Considerations When Moving During the Four Seasons

With powdery-sand beaches and amazing weather, Florida sounds almost like a paradise.

Florida doesn’t have to be a quick vacation, although a vacation anywhere is always appreciated. A more permanent move to Florida will take a lot of planning. Work, family, and other obligations need to be fulfilled before your bags are packed.

If you are ready to embrace a more relaxing lifestyle and make your dollars go farther, read on to find out what season may be the best for your move.

A Spring Move to Florida

In my humble opinion, the best time to move is Spring. The state is even lusher with even more greenery than usual.

Homes are flooding the market, and moving costs are pretty average.

You won’t have to worry about the temperature being an issue during your move. The weather is rather temperate this time of year, but still warm enough to plan a beach trip.

Being familiar with the community you live in is a big plus. This will help you know which beaches to visit, close attractions, and even what shopping and dining areas will become your staples.


This is probably the most popular time for families with children to move. School is out, and now you have a couple of extra hands to help pack. Your kids will have time to adjust to their new environment and hopefully make a friend or two.

Summer is also the busiest season for moving, with that comes higher demand and as such prices. Consider moving in the summer months to have your family help you more with the move and be it easier to transition schools.


Consider moving in fall to beat the heat of the summer months. While fall is still considered warm in Florida, it is much cooler than summer in comparison.

Some other benefits of moving in the Fall include enjoying your new humble abode for the holidays. When you move in the fall months, expect to be settled in by the holiday season.


Hitch a ride with the migrating birds. Birds seem to love their winter trips to Florida so much, that they come back every year.

Winters in Florida are cool, you’ll see natives out in puffer jackets once temperatures hit 70. If you are moving from a southern state you won’t have to worry about snow and other harsh road conditions. If you are moving from a much cooler state, don’t forget to factor that unknow into your move.
