According to Scott Alliy President of AudioHomeShowings.com and HomesandRealty.com the keys to a successful moving experience are to make sure that you are mentally prepared and that you have an organized plan of action.
A wise thing to do before you begin your home selling and moving experience says Scott is to take pictures of collections of artwork or personal display items on shelves. This will help you in getting reorganized in your new home.
Secondly, as clean and organized as your house may be there are always items that you may have lived with that could turn potential buyers away. Some items that are very easy and inexpensive to fix include nail holes in the wall and plaster cracks in the ceiling that are inevitable especially in the South because of the clay soil that hardens and shrinks under the foundation.
Paint and flooring are two of the most inexpensive yet potentially valuable activities that you can perform says Scott who witnessed the transformation and profits by doing this when recently selling his own home.
Make sure that you home looks lived in but not cluttered is another great piece of advice for home sellers. Too many display items and too much furniture will confuse a home buyer who will wonder where their items and furniture will fit. Too little furnishings and display items leave that buyer with the impression of an empty house that must be sold and this could lead them to offer less for your home thinking that you must have already moved and therefore that you must be a motivated seller.
When it comes to moving Scott suggests that you visit your local box store and purchase a wide variety of box sizes and pack your personal items and clothes yourself. You'll save money by saving the movers the time to pack and you'll have your items safely packed the way that you want them to be.
Finally if you are planning to sell furniture and have the time Scott suggests that you advertise your items in as many local papers as possible up to three weeks in advance of your move. Be sure to post your items for sale on the bulletin board at your workplace and ask friends and relatives to do the same.
Moving can be stressful so be sure to take frequent breaks and reward yourself for each milestone that you reach along the way to completing your successful move.
