How to Plan a Home Move and Sell Your Current Home
Moving homes is always exciting.
In most cases, it feels like you’re starting the next chapter in your life. It’s invigorating. But it’s also hard work. Moving homes is no easy feat. You have to plan the relocation of almost everything you own (except the things that you’re planning to sell, but you still have to deal with those).
And while you can always hire a company like Move Coordinators Inc to help you organize and deal with your move, you still have a lot of work in front of you.
So, we decided to sit down and share our experience with moving home with you. From what you need to pack quickly, to going over other super essential steps during the packing and moving process.
Preparing the budget is one of the most important steps of the whole home move.
Figuring out the budget before you actually start the home move is one of the most important things that you have to figure out before you start.
Depending on how far away you move, you should budget roughly between $2,000 and $10,000. And by roughly, we mean those are just median costs of a home move.
But of course, it all depends on things like are you moving all your furniture, do you have to transport cars, and are you moving to the other side of the country.
The only way to get a super accurate cost estimation on your move is to actually call a local moving company and request a quote.
Start listing your home for sale only after you’ve found your next place to live.
Most people need to realize that selling a house might happen super quickly, but in most cases, your house is listed for months before you sell the property.
But, it’s better to move to another home and list your house for sale only after you have found and purchased your next home. That way you can be sure you won’t be rushed to purchase your next home only because you’re pressed to make the purchase.
Packing may seem like a straightforward process, but in fact, it has a system to it.
And make sure you’re ready to do the heavy lifting because packing is no easy thing. You will have to make a system that suits you and your family.
Also, make sure you keep everything organized. Label boxes, when possible place things in smaller boxes. That way, once you start unpacking, you won’t have to deal with the chaos that comes with moving homes.
Start planning at least two months before the actual move.
And finally, start planning your move at least two months before you actually move. Make sure you notify all institutions that may be interested like your local post office or your local government.
Contact different moving companies and compare quotes. That way you can be sure you’ll get the best price for your move.
