How to Make moving into a new home happen this year

new home for 2018

Here we are at the beginning of a New Year and yet already one month in and all those promises and resolutions we made are falling away.

One of the things many of us think about doing at the beginning of a new year is moving home and yet as the year goes on we put obstacles in our path and talk ourselves out of actually doing it. We tell ourselves it costs too much money to move, it’s too stressful or the weather is too bad at this time of year, we even blame others telling ourselves “I want to move but my partner or children don’t”.

Whatever the reasons we come up with that prevent us from moving they are just excuses! If we really want to move we need to stop procrastinating and just do it!

Moving home can be a refreshing adventure bringing with it the joy and excitement of a new start.

However, the key to a successful move is getting motivated and planning. Sitting down and writing a check list of all the things you need to do before you move and organising this list into a time frame helps to keep you focused on the task ahead and helps to alleviate stress.

The beginning of the year is an excellent time of year to move. As fewer people are moving at this time Estate Agents, Solicitors and Removal Firm are not as busy and can give you more personal attention.

We can’t control the weather but preparing for bad weather on removal day will help to limit its effects – simple things like having old sheets or card to put on the floors to absorb wet footprints, easy access to spare warm dry clothing and equipment to make warm drinks.

If your partner or children are reluctant to move be prepared to answer their reasons for not moving and present them with all the benefits.

Are you ready to make 2018 the year you finally move?!
