Is summer a good period to buy a convertible?
If you are intending to buy a convertible then the worst time to do it is on spring or early summer. The main reason as to why you should not purchase a convertible in the period lies in the law of demand and supply. Many people with interest in buying a convertible will always buy in the warm periods. Dealers will always give a small discount in summer as the number of people intending to buy them in the period would be large. The second hand dealers will also get high demands and therefore they will not reduce the price or offer any discount.
Always it will be important if you can hold and wait until the winter season when the demand is low. Due to the many discounts and offers in the season, you will be able to save large amounts of money and also get a quality convertible. The problem that will result from buying it in the winter period is that the convertible will have to remain in the garage as you wait for the warm seasons. The other problem will be that many people may withhold the sell of their convertibles as they wait for the summer period when the demand is quite high.
