If you’ve ever made a move in the past, you are likely well aware that there is a long list of items that need to be taken care of before you can put your feet up and relax in your new living room.
But, in addition to the packing and unpacking of boxes, showing your current home to prospective purchasers, and coordinating the entire process so that it runs like a well-oiled cog in a wheel, there can still be items that either get left on the back burner – or that are completely forgotten about.
To help you with ensuring that all ends up in the right place, though, here are a few things that you should keep at (or at least very near) the top of your moving to-do list:
- Completing a change of address notification with the post office
- Contacting your children’s school(s) (if applicable)
- Contacting your homeowners and auto insurance agents
- Updating your computer
- Making arrangements for pets
- Notifying your banks, credit card companies, and subscription services (like newspaper and magazines)
If you’ve got enough on your plate during your moving process, it could be beneficial to delegate some of the key tasks to a professional. For instance, hiring movers an allow you to get your things where they need to be much more quickly – and without having to visit the chiropractor afterwards in order to get your back into place!
Having a professional and experienced real estate team list and sell your current home can also provide you with well-needed time to focus on other pressing needs. When you trust the right realtor to selling your home, you know that you’ll have a marketing plan to follow, which not only provides a track for presenting your home to the right potential buyers, but that also allows you to leave the showings and paperwork to someone else, too!
