Moving to a Luxury Condo Needn’t be Stressful
Looking for a cheap condo for sale? Thinking about relocating?
You’re not alone. Over 6.5 million households in the United States moved in 2010, although many of them were short distance moves. In 2012, more than half of recorded moves in the US were within the same county. And although the annual migration rate may be on a stead decline over the last few decades, approximately 15% of the population moves each year.
Finding a new condo for sale is just one step in the process. People often feel that the process of moving is quite daunting, but there are steps you can take to make it less of a hassle for all concerned.
One of the nice things about moving to a luxurious condo is the availability of new condo floor plans, which can help you get an idea of what the space is like even at a distance.
But whether you’re looking for a cheap condo for sale or luxury condos near a golf course, make you life easier with a few moving tips:
Especially when employing a moving or packing service of any kind, take inventory. Make lists of all furniture, items of value and packed goods for your own peace of mind.
Have a “Go-Bag”
Have each of your family members pack a suitcase that will cater to their daily needs for the duration of the move. Include an extra days or two’s worth of supplies in case of unexpected delays.
Put a schedule together for the entire process. Be sure to include the disconnection of all services at your former location one day after you leave, and have everything turned on at the new location one day before you arrive. Schedule an appointment with the moving service you’ll be using to go over the details of your plan and make sure everyone is in agreement about the price range. You may not end up being able to adhere to the schedule 100%, but it gives you a structure to work from.
Statistics tell us that the biggest factor in moving to a new neighborhood is its proximity to work. Whether that’s your concern, or if you’re just looking for a cheap condo for sale, be sure that whatever complex you move to has a good condo maintenance plan.
