Top 5 Reasons to Move to OKC This Summer With Homes by Taber

July 2, 2024

In the vibrant heart of Oklahoma, you’ll find the ever-growing Oklahoma City, where the possibilities are endless and the quality of life is unmatched. At Homes by Taber ®, Oklahoma’s Favorite Builder ®, we take immense pride in crafting new homes in OKC that become the backdrop to your life’s most cherished moments. Although the city is ready to welcome you with open arms year-round, there’s no doubt that summer in the 405 is the perfect time to make your move. With our deep roots in the community and our Proudly Overbuilt ® promise for homeowners across the area, our team is a trusted resource here to share the top five reasons why making OKC your new home this summer is the best decision you can make.

1. Move just in time for the new school year

One of the most compelling reasons to move this summer is to synchronize your relocation with the start of the new school year. For families, this timing is invaluable. OKC boasts some of the best school districts in the state, and Homes by Taber is beyond proud to build in prime locations such as Norman, Edmond, Deer Creek, and Moore. These districts are renowned for their high academic standards, dedicated educators, and strong community support systems. By moving before or right as the school year begins, your children can start the year with a fresh start, making new friends and settling into their new environment without the disruption of a mid-year move. This seamless transition can significantly enhance their academic and social experiences, setting them up for success.

2. Enjoy the low cost of living without sacrificing amenities

There’s no doubt that Oklahoma City stands out for its remarkably low cost of living, especially when compared to other major metropolitan areas. This affordability extends to housing, utilities, groceries, and transportation, allowing you to stretch your dollar further—which can be even more beneficial in the summer, when vacations and expensive excursions tend to be at their highest. However, a lower cost of living doesn’t mean you have to compromise on amenities or opportunities. OKC offers a vibrant urban lifestyle with flourishing career prospects, diverse cultural experiences, and an array of recreational activities.

Plus, at Homes by Taber, we take this value a step further. Our new construction homes in OKC come with an array of standard features that other builders consider upgrades. Energy-efficient practices, spacious floor plans, high-quality finishes, and innovative home technologies are all part of the package. This means you’re not only saving on the cost of living—but also getting exceptional value for your investment. In essence, you get more bang for your buck with a Homes by Taber home in Oklahoma City in every aspect, allowing you to enjoy both financial savings and a higher quality of life this summer and beyond.

3. Summer: The perfect time to explore OKC

Summer in OKC is synonymous with endless exploration, as the city comes alive with lush greenery, lively events, and fantastic outdoor dining options. It’s the perfect season to immerse yourself in the local culture and discover all that the city has to offer. Cool off at Hurricane Harbor Water Park or spend a day at one of the city’s many beautiful lakes, such as Lake Hefner or Arcadia Lake. These spots offer everything from boating and fishing to picnicking and hiking, providing ample opportunities for family fun and relaxation.

Farmers' markets in OKC are another summer highlight, offering fresh produce, artisanal goods, and a chance to connect with the local community. Places like the Scissortail Park Farmers Market and the Norman Farm Market are bustling hubs of activity where you can sample local flavors and meet friendly faces. Furthermore, the outdoor dining scene in OKC is truly at its peak during the summer months, with numerous patios and rooftops offering delicious cuisine and stunning views. Whether you're savoring a meal in the heart of Bricktown at Bourbon St. Cafe or enjoying a cocktail on the roof at Social Capital, the outdoor dining and drinking options are one-of-a-kind. By moving to Oklahoma City in the summer, you can fully experience the vibrant lifestyle that OKC has to offer and start creating lasting memories in your new city.

4. Enjoy your new Taber home to the fullest

Settling into a new home during the summer allows you to take full advantage of the outdoor living spaces that Homes by Taber meticulously designs. Each of our new homes in Oklahoma City features thoughtfully crafted outdoor areas perfect for entertaining, relaxing, or simply enjoying the beautiful OKC weather. Whether you’re hosting summer barbecues on your patio, watching your kids play in the backyard, or unwinding in the evening with a good book on your patio, outdoor living has never been more serene.

Additionally, our new home communities in OKC are designed with an emphasis on outdoor living and neighborhood interaction. Sidewalks, playgrounds, green spaces, and community amenities such as ponds and sports courts are integral parts of our developments. This design philosophy encourages a strong sense of community and provides residents with ample opportunities to enjoy the outdoors without leaving their neighborhood—and there’s no doubt that summer is the peak time to experience these amenities. The warm weather and long days make it ideal for outdoor activities, and moving now means you can immediately start enjoying all that your new home and community have to offer. From morning jogs on scenic trails to evening strolls with your family, the possibilities are endless.
