Ultimate Guide to Moving Houses

Moving home is always going to be challenging but there are plenty of things that you can do to make it less stressful. By planning carefully and calling in the relevant professionals to help you, you can make your relocation as smooth and as hassle-free as possible.

Prepare your house for the sale

Your ultimate aim is to get as much money for your home as possible. There are two factors that will affect the price of your house. The first is its location and there is nothing that you can do about that! The second is the condition of the house and this is where you can make a lot of money with very little effort.

It is worth giving your house a lick of paint before potential buyers view it. It makes it looks fresh and gives the impression that it has been well-maintained which makes it attractive to buyers. You also need to focus on the kitchen and the bathroom. These are vital when you are trying to clinch a sale. You can make a big difference to a bathroom with a new vanity and new shower curtains or screens.  

Dirty houses don’t sell for high prices! Give yours a thorough spring clean before you put it up for sale. When you choose professional movers you get a full service including the supply of packing supplies, storage space hire and even help with that all important de-clutter before you move. You can rely on the employees who have been background checked for your safety and peace of mind. This is far less stressful than trying to organize it all yourself and cram all your belongings in the back of a hired van.

Pets and children don’t help

On the day of the move, it can be easier if pets and children are cared for elsewhere. Pets can become very distressed by a move because they will not understand what is going on. You will have enough to worry about without chasing a distressed cat or dog around the house. It is also easy for pets to go missing during a move because the doors are left open. If you do not have any neighbors who can mind them, it would be worth putting them into a boarding kennels or cattery for the day.

Older children can be very useful during a move because they can help to pack up and move things around. Teens would rather pack up their own things and will not appreciate you poking around their bedrooms. Younger children may find it confusing and upsetting and may find it easier to stay at a friend’s house during the move. You can help them pack up their things and explain in terms that they understand what is going on. Let them take a few favorite toys with them to help with their feelings of security.

With some planning and professional help, you can make your house move a tiring but happy experience and you can look forward to settling into your new home.
