When is the best time of year to build a home?

There are plenty of characteristics to consider when deciding the best time of year to build a home. Typically, in the real estate market, there’s always a best month or season to buy. Broader market trends, like the current state of the economy or your local job market, can also dictate if it’s a good time to buy or not. Furthermore, it’s important to remember that build times can also play a huge factor when building a home.

As far as the weather is concerned, the best time to build is when it’s cool and dry. The exact time of year of cool, dry weather depends heavily on where you live and the weather patterns associated with that area. Luckily, at Maronda, we have decades of experience successfully building homes year-round in differing climates. Therefore, no matter what season you’re hoping to break ground, we have options for you!

If you’re building in an area that has a very mild winter season and builds time is not a concern, breaking ground in the fall or winter may be the right choice for you. Here, days will be cooler, prices will be lower, and there will be plenty of time to get the house started and closed-in/dried-in by January. Typically, as long as you hit the dry-in phase before January, fall is a great time to start construction.

On the contrary, if you’re building in an area where the winter season is full of freezing temperatures and snowstorms, winter may not be the most optimal time to build.

Maronda is here to make your new home construction dreams come true, regardless of when or where you choose to build.
