Are you thinking of moving house and can’t quite bring yourself to make the first move? Are you happy to go house hunting but worried about the logistics of the move itself?
You wouldn’t be alone. Many house-hunters are put off by the hard work that comes with selling your house and buying a new property.
Here are some useful tips to make sure that moving house is not the chore that people claim it to be.
When it comes to packing your belongings, don’t just pile up as many boxes as possible with items that have long since lost their use. It’s a pointless exercise. After all, when you arrive in your new home, you will almost certainly end up throwing most of it away. So, make sure you de-clutter, room by room. And make sure you are ruthless!
Once you’ve managed to sift through your belongings and have either thrown away or sold on ebay, those items you no longer require, it’s time to pack those that are going with you.
There is also one final, but vitally important part of moving house. Make sure you have a box with your tea, coffee, cold drinks and a packet of biscuits. Maybe a bottle of your favourite red. When you arrive at your new home and have finally unpacked, you will need to sit down, relax and toast your move. Remember, if it’s red wine that floats your boat, you’ll need a couple of glasses too.
