Moving homes can be a daunting task for anyone. But before you get all nervous about it, there are a few things that your Calgary realtor wants you to know.
1) Plan Out The Move Way Beforehand
With so many homes for sale in Calgary, we understand the joy that comes with finally buying the perfect home. And we know the excitement that comes with moving in as soon as possible. But you will need to relax and slowly plan out your move. Break down the move in sections within a timeline, so you know what to do, and are well-prepared beforehand.
2) Declutter Your Home
Moving homes is a great time to declutter and get rid of stuff that you don’t need. Over the years, you would have accumulated a wide variety of clothes, items, furniture and appliances that either you no longer use, or can’t fit in your new home. While packing, put aside the stuff that you no longer need. You can either throw it away in the garbage, donate it, or hold a yard sale and sell it.
3) Get All Your Utilities Sorted Before You Move
There is nothing more annoying than spending a whole day moving to find that you can’t turn on the tap. A mistake that many people do is that they don’t transfer or sort out their utilities before they move in. The smart move is to prepare your internet, gas, electricity, water and garbage beforehand, so you are ready to roll when you move in. Another little Calgary realtor tip: start changing your mailing address as soon as you can.
4) Move Progressively
While it is tempting to move everything in one day, it is always smart to move out progressively. This way, you have less stress placed on you to get everything sorted in one day. Slowly moving items across will lessen the pressure and give you time to recuperate. At the same time, it will mean less money spent on hiring moving companies, so you just hire them for moving big items like furniture.
5) Your Calgary Realtor Can Help
Your realtor is not only there to help you find a Calgary home for sale, but can also help you with the process afterwards. They care about your well-being and want to make sure that you have a smooth transition from your old home to your new place. With their connections, they can put you in touch with people who can help (like movers) as well as provide you with tips on the best way to move.
