Ultimately, the burden is on you to make sure everything goes correctly. I’ve got some tips to share with you that will help you do exactly that. The first thing you should do is start calling around to get price quotes, whether it’s for a moving company, storage facility, or anything else you’ll need for your move. You want to plan and prepare to vacate your house at least a day before closing, if not sooner. When you begin the moving process, start small. Take the things that you’ll never use to goodwill or another charity. You could also sell unwanted things on Facebook or Craigslist if you have time. It’s okay to disassemble some of your larger items and store them in the garage for an easy and quick move when the day comes. While early move-in on a new house is most of the times not possible, your Realtor is a trusted expert who could facilitate that. Once you’re done moving everything out of the home, be sure to allow extra time to thoroughly clean it once it’s completely vacant.If you need your proceeds to be able to close on your new house, schedule the closing in the middle of the day and have the existing home close earlier in the day. When you move, have simple items like water, toiletries, and snacks on hand to help minimize breaks and keep you moving on moving day. If you have any questions or want more tips on moving, give me a call or send me an email. I would love to hear from you.
