The debate rages on. When is the best time to move a family -- during the summer, or when school is in session? There is no definitive answer, but the decision should be based on the personality of your children, how well they acclimate to a new situation, and how they feel about the move.
Some professionals say that moving during the summer can result in a lonely few months for the children. Making friends is difficult with families traveling for vacation, neighborhood children already registered for local camps and established friendships occupying a child's hours. Unless you have surveyed the new neighborhood and made arrangements to occupy your children's summer days, the doldrums will set in and children will mope and decry why mom and dad made them leave their friends.
Conversely, a move during the school year pulls children away from their established friendships, after-school activities and routines. BUT -- putting them into a school during the year gives them an opportunity to make new friends. Children love to take a new child under their wings and before long, your children will be so busy and involved in their new lives that they won't have time to mope.
Besides, there's always Skype or Facetime!

Just wanted to take a moment to recommend an outstanding real estate agent. About a year ago my wife and I looked into buying a new house. We looked at exit realty's website and the next morning we received a call from Joseph Schneider. He is a true professional with an outstanding personality he will instantly make you feel welcome as if you're working with a longtime friend. My wife had unusual requests for the property and Joseph listened and found the property meeting all our needs. He is patient and knowledgeable I would recommend him to all. We purchased our new home in August and since then Joseph has remained in contact, just checking in from time to time. You can look but I doubt you will find a better agent !"
