Everyone seems to be moving right now…and for good reason, too. The housing market is wild and you are able to make some serious cash on your home. That’s great on one hand, but afterwards, you also have to find somewhere to live. Hence…moving! It has been noted that moving is one of lifes most stressful events and that is because there are so many moving parts. You have to be out of a home by a certain date, have it cleaned up, clean up your new home, do any renovations, move all of your items in, organize, and so much more. Moving is not stress-free by any means, but you CAN have an easier move. Here are a few tips for an easy move…or at least an easier move –
Hire a great team
Hiring a great team to help keep you afloat is essential. You can also get your friends and family involved, as well, but for starters, your team needs to be compromised of the below –
-Real estate agent: Your agent ABSOLUTELY needs to be skilled in knowing the current market, pricing your home correctly, and of course, negotiating, as well. Your agent is probably the #1 most important thing (when it comes to creating a team) because your agent has the chance to make or break your sale and purchase of a home. Start with your friend list – I’m sure you have a friend that is an agent. Then, check out their reviews. This is so important because if you go with a friend or family member who isn’t exactly “skilled,” you could lose out on a TON of money…or even your dream house!
-Inspector: Once you have your agent and you get your dream home under contract, you will definitely need a really great inspector. A great inspector will make it possible for you to go into your new home, without any fears of insanely expensive repairs (that are unknown to you, of course). When you get your inspection report back, don’t be alarmed if it’s long. It is supposed to be! This is when you can re-negotiate with the seller, and ask for fixes, unless you did an as-is offer.
-Cleaner: Next up: moving day! But, before you move in, make sure you have a professional cleaner come in and do a good deep clean on your new home. This is great, especially if you picked up anything on your mold test. A deep clean is an absolutely must!
-Moving team: Last but not least, the team you will love the most…Your moving team! They will SAVE YOU so much time and frustration. Oh, and a backache, too.

Moving isn’t always cheap and it doesn’t always cost a lot, but depending on your circumstances and what you might want to do with your new home (or your old home before you sell), you will want to prepare financially. Plus, a lot of the time, you will need to do repairs shortly after moving in. You do not want to be stressed about finances – trust me!
Stick with your normal routine as much as possible
There might be chaos in your home, but if you stick to your routine as much as possible, you could limit that chaos and make the entire process much less stressful on yourself. Plus, if you opt to eat out, or stay up way too late, your overall health could take hit. Keep working out, eating like you typically do, and sleep enough! Your health is worth sticking with your typical routine as much as possible.
Turn on some music and have some fun with it
Last but not least, you have to move at the point when you sell your home. There’s no way around that. So, have fun with it and stop stressing so much! Turn on some music, invite friends over, and have a pizza party. You’ve got this!
