Minimizing Stress

Did you know that for most people, moving ranks as one of the most stressful experiences of their life? Here are some things you can do to minimize stress when you are ready to make a move:

  • Choose a real estate agent who communicates clearly and frequently, keeping you up to speed on every step of the process.

  • Consider how long it will take from the time you make an offer on a property until the transaction closes. Once an offer is received and accepted, it may take from 30 to 45 days to obtain financing. Being pre-approved for a loan can shorten that time frame considerably.

  • Decide whether you want to move yourself or have professional movers handle the job. If you hire a moving company, be sure to book them well in advance.

  • Think about cleaning services. After everything is packed and moved is a great time to have someone come in and clean your old home.

  • Arrange at least two weeks in advance to have utilities and phone service disconnected at your old house and reconnected in your new home on the move-in date.

  • Get referrals from your doctors, dentists, and veterinarians for providers near your new home. Take your files with you instead of waiting for them to be sent
