Packing Tips

Now that your home is sold, it is time to think about moving day.  It can make you worried that there is so much to do and you may not even know where to start.  We are here to help you break this down into small steps that make it easier to accomplish.  If you are feeling anxiety, take a breath and let us help you make this simple. 

Here is the Closing Timeline Overview and how it impacts Moving:

Once you have a contract on your home, start thinking about how you are going to move yourself.  Will you hire a mover, use a POD or get a moving truck and do it yourself?  This is a big decision.  Be realistic about what you physically can do. 

Inspection - Scheduled for 7-10 days after contract execution.  

If there is a financing condition- Appraisal takes place.  

Begin packing and sorting.  Preparing for your move is really important.  One of the common issues that clients have when they are moving is underestimating how much they have. Starting early is key. Some easy areas you can start with are the closets, the garage, and the attic.  Think hard about what you will want to move.  If you do the sorting early, you will avoid paying to move things you will end up throwing away.  Do you love it?  If yes, move it.  Will you use it?  If not, get rid of it.  

You can decide which mover you are going to use.  

It is time to decide what you are going to do with any of your items that you are not going to take with you.  Are you donating, selling, doing a yard sale, giving it to a friend or family member or throwing it out?  If you are doing a yard sale, go ahead and pick your date for the yard sale.  If you are donating, call and get on the schedule for your chosen charity.  

If there is a mortgage, we will be monitoring the process.  When we are comfortable that all is well, you can commit to a moving date with your mover.
