Whether you're relocating for a new job, to be closer to family, or to simply have a fresh start, there are things you should do to make this process a smooth transition.
Moving costs can quickly add up when relocating to a new area, so be sure to sit down and calculate your budget. Having a list of potential expenses is important to gauge how much of your savings should be allotted to these costs. Consider adding purchases you will need to make immediately after moving to this list, which could include things like storage fees, new furniture, and cleaning services for your new home.
To become familiarized with the area you're moving to, there are a few things you should research:
If you are relocating, you will need an exemplary real estate agent to help you sell your old home and purchase a new one. Depending on how far you are relocating from the area you currently live in, you may need to hire a second agent that is local to the community you're moving to.
Whether you need us to sell your old home or purchase a new one, our realtors at Triangle Experts can help you during every step of this process.
As moving day approaches, there are several things you should do to ease the stress of relocating:
Moving can be a stressful event, especially when you have heavy furniture and dozens of boxes to transport from one place to another, but it doesn't have to be. Consider hiring a professional moving company to relieve some of the stress during moving day. Most companies offer tiered services from basic to specialty, so make sure to choose the service that best suits your needs.
If you're moving for a job, your new employer may offer moving incentives, including help that covers moving fees. Depending on the contract, this could include coverages on moving companies, gas, and any hotel stays that may be needed should this be a larger move. Keep receipts of all transactions.
Moving day can be stressful. Doing several self check-ins throughout the day is beneficial in ensuring this process is a seamless one.
Unpacking right away may seem daunting, but it's important to check for any damages to furniture or valuables that may have been incurred while moving. To avoid overwhelming yourself, consider unpacking one room at a time before moving on to the next. Start with rooms you'll use immediately upon moving like the kitchen and master bedroom.
Take a leisurely drive through your new town, soaking in new parks, businesses, and eateries as you go. A great way to meet new friends is getting involved in the community, so be sure to take a look at local events and programs available. When you're settled in, say hello to your new neighbors, host a housewarming party, or grab a drink with your new coworkers.
