As a property stylist, my job is to get the most out of your home when it goes on the market – so over the years I’ve learned a thing or two about selling and moving home. If you’ve already read Part 1: Getting Ready For Market of this series, you’ll have successfully sold your home. Now it’s time for the fun to begin…
Now I know you’ll be relieved to have sold your property, but the hard part is not over. The move can often be just as daunting.
Organisation is key to ensure it goes as flawlessly as possible. Hopefully you have started the packing process as your were de-cluttering and prepping your home for sale. Organise and label every box clearly with an inventory, so you know what’s in it on the other side.
Removalists are an integral part in this process. Choose carefully – pick someone you can trust with your furniture and if you like, someone who offers a packing service as well. Get 3-4 quotes to compare, and ask your friends. Word of mouth is the best recommendation.
Look after your pets on the move too – relocating can be a stressful time for animals, so considering kenneling for a week until you’re settled on the other side.
And of course, don’t forget to let everyone know your on the move – gas, electric, phone, mail etc.
