What Season is the Best Time To Buy?
Every season has its time. You’ve heard it before:
To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.”
Sew so when is the best time to buy items like TVs, appliances, cars, wine, houses, boats, air conditioners, wedding dresses, bikes and more?
Let’s take a look at the different seasons and what they have to offer as far as deals, discounts, bargains, and supply and demand. Some of these you may be familiar with and some may be a surprise.
Spring is the best time to buy television sets. Many Japanese manufacturers end their fiscal year in March. So there’s usually a push in the spring to move out last year’s models. April is a great time to buy and get a great deal on a new TV. April is also the cheapest time to book a cruise along with some gym memberships as people are heading outdoors for sun and exercise.
Summer is the time to look for sales on furniture and appliances especially during holiday weekends. Wine is often cheaper in late summer before the harvest. Summer may also be a great time to get a deal with your heating and cooling company for furnace repair or servicing.
Fall is the best time to buy a new car as car makers are looking to unload the year’s current models by September. Late fall is the best time to buy anything related to a wedding. Dresses and supplies are cheaper because fewer people get married in December and the winter months. Fall is a great time to buy tools, hardware and other items that are mainly used outdoors in nice weather.
Winter is the best time to buy gas grills, air conditioners, fans, outdoor patio furniture and off-season sports gear like bikes, fishing gear, roller blades and more. It’s also a good time to go house or boat hunting. Many sellers in the winter months especially during the holidays can be a little more anxious to get their home sold. Of course if you can, wait until after Christmas to buy seasonal items, decorations, trees, etc. After Christmas is also the time to buy toys, calenders, coats, jewelry and watches. Without expecting many buyers, some sellers may be willing to be more flexible and negotiate a deeper deal. Every seller is different and it may require a bit more work, but it may be worth it.
