For me the best season would be April-May if you have a good weather ahead. Coming end of the year is not the best time as it is a bit gray and depressive and one wants a bright start of new life. December is hectic period on one side always party and celebration of important days (St. Nicholas, Christmass, New Year) and a lot of work to finish the year before hollidays.
Pressure with work is normal in April-May, and very soon it becomes a bit less during summer hollidays, also gives a good start.
Housing prices do not differ much in area I live in, but tend to grow a bit after summer hollidays.
During summer there are more tourist offers with low price tickets for transport and culture.
