First time home buyers moving tips
If you are moving to your first home, then you are pretty much excited at last staying within the walls of a place you can call your own. However, you are going to need a smooth transition from where you are to where you need to be. Moving, for whatever reason, is always hectic, and it becomes even more challenging when you have never done it before. If you are a first time buyer, the tips below will do the trick for you:
Get a head start
Do not start packing on the moving day . Get ready as early as three months to the day. Pack whatever you need out of the way first. Get rid of things that just eat up on space and resist the temptation to stay with stuff that will be of no use in your new home.
Finding the right movers will be key
If it’s your first time finding a mover, get your math right. Go for a company with a solid reputation in the area. Be on the lookout for red flags and give companies that do not stand to scrutiny a wide berth. Never go for companies that do not carry insurance because in the case of loss or theft, then there is no hope of recovering the cost of your valuables.
Get a pair of extra hands
Even if you have a professional mover lined up, you still may need to have extra hands on the side. Talk to any friends and relatives who may want to give a hand. Please do this early enough to avoid getting turned down or upsetting other people’s schedules.
Check for power and water
Moving is hectic, and people tend to forget the most mundane of things. Imagine getting to the new house only to find that the water has not been turned on and that the electricity has been disconnected. To avert this disaster, ensure that these things have already been handled from the other end, either by the seller of by your agent. You can even send a family member to check things out a day or so before the move.
