2. Think About Your Needs, Over Your Wants
Here at Greenaway, we swear by lists, lists can literally help you solve anything. It can be very easy when planning your dream home to think about all the things you want, but when you come back into reality, those things can potentially not be possible. So, when it comes to moving house, make a list of the things you need and the things you want, this way you can put it all into perspective when it comes to preparing your move.
3. Prepare For Emotional Ups and Downs
Like most things, moving house can cause your emotions to be up and down, you have a lot of things that you need to prepare and organise, which can lead to you being in a stressful situation. However, it is important to think about the positives as well; you are about to start a new life in a new home.
4. Research and Plan
Once you have bought your home and it is leading up to the big move day, you need to figure out how you want to move. For example, are you going to do it yourself, or do you need to hire a professional? Consider your budget, this way you know what you can afford and what you can’t. Discuss moving options with different companies so you can guarantee you are going to get the best service for your money.
5. The Packing Process
Before you start boxing everything up, figure out a timeline for the packing process. Ideally, you need to pack all non-essentials first so you know you are not constantly going to be going into boxes to get things out leading up to the move. Non-essential items can include, books, home decor items and electronics. As the moving date gets closer, that is when you can start packing essentials. These can include, kitchen items, clothing and toiletries.
Useful tip: Make sure you label your boxes.
The most important thing to remember is to stay positive and don’t give up, as estate agents we are there from start to finish and even though it can sometimes seem like a battle, it is worth it in the end.
