The advantages of going on holiday in September

The month of August is nearing its end and this means it will also be the end of the holidays for many Spaniards. However, some people prefer to extend their time off by a few more weeks or they opt to go on holiday in September. If this is your case, do not worry as there are many attractive reasons to go on holiday in September and more people are tempted to do so. Below, we will show you some of the advantages of taking a holiday in September as this is also a good time to sell a house in Madrid.

The first factor to take into account is the fewer number of travellers that we will find whichever destination we choose. Given that the vast majority of professionals usually take that well-deserved break between July and August, tourist influx is reduced significantly from 1st of September. The beaches are less crowded, the restaurants offer better service, the queues to access some establishment are significantly shortened, and the congestion of airports and motorways also eases. In short, the month of September will be a good time to take a break.

Likewise, the fact that the level of occupancy in hotels and other accommodation establishments begins to remit always leads to cheaper room rates. Hotels are cheaper as are airline tickets and a good number of the services that will be accessed at the destination. This is what happens when supply stays more or less unchanged but demand falls. All this allows a better planning of the activities, including the possibility of extending your stay and paying less.

Of course, we can not forget the best weather conditions that are usually enjoyed in the month of September. Traditionally, July tends to record the highest temperatures of the year, which fall steadily from mid-August. In this way, the ninth month of the year always offers a few degrees Celsius less than the previous month. This drop creates a milder climate without feeling uncomfortably warm. It will still be possible to enjoy the beach throughout the day (for example) but without the summer heat.

As a last resort, the return of those who enjoyed their holiday in August contributes to an increase in the presence of locals in the streets, neighbourhood communities and housing estates. Thus, the sense of security is much greater than when houses remain practically empty. The risk of burglary is therefore significantly lower compared to the summer months.

But what happens if you want to sell a property in Madrid precisely at the end of the summer? Engel & Völkers takes this possibility into account and for that reason, all its Madrid offices have remained open during the summer and will continue to do so in September. Keep in mind that the Spanish capital receives an enormous amount of national and foreign visitors, who can take advantage of their stay to take an interest in the available real estate offer. Therefore, our offices are still working to sell properties in Madrid while you take a break.
