Moving can be quite the process, especially when you have to sell your current home and buy another. Whether you’re moving across town or across the country, these tips will help you relocate with ease.
Give yourself plenty of time. If you know that you are looking to relocate, begin the home search right away. Finding a new home can take some time, and then the closing process can take even longer.
Find a real estate agent willing to work on your timeline. We know relocating can be quite the process, so it is important to find an agent that is familiar with what relocating entails. Check out the testimonials on realtor websites to learn more about the area and who will best fit your needs.
If you have to relocate on short notice for employment reasons, check with your employer to see what kind of moving assistance they can provide. Depending on your company and position, you may be eligible for moving assistance like packers, a stipend for housing before you close on a home in your new location, or even potential financial assistance with buying and selling your home.
Instead of paying for new boxes, check with local businesses for used boxes. Often times businesses that receive large shipments will allow you to take the boxes from their recycling at no cost to you.
If you have children, research local schools to get them excited about the move.

Research the local schools so that your child can have an idea of where they’ll be spending their time.
