Moving is hard. There are no ifs, ands, or buts about it. There are so many things you need to take into consideration in the process. Where are you going, how are you getting there, and picking the right people to help you along the way.
If you have children, the process just got harder. Two fold. There is nothing more difficult in the moving process than doing it with children. Emotionally and physically.
It’s hard enough telling your kids that you are moving. But you also have to figure out what to do with their stuff. They have a lot of stuff. You have a home to sell. Your real estate agent is going to come in and tell you to make room! Clean closets, pick up the toys, and take down the posters. They are going to stand in your kitchen and stare at the bottles, formula, Cheese Nips, dirty dishes and the 3 o’clock snack remnants and tell you it all has to go. Not only do you have to clean it, it has to stay clean. Your home needs to look like it isn’t lived in. And you are going to think your agent is crazy. But you also want to make as much money on your home as you can. And this is the professional who is going to help you do that. Here are a few tips to help you out along the way.
Moving with kids isn’t easy. Moving isn’t easy. Try to make it as smooth for yourself as possible. Start early, be prepared, and prepare your family. Then make sure you are using every resource available to you.
