Getting ready to move is a fun and exciting time. With all of the change happening around you, itís good to have a solid plan in place for moving that will get you through. Perhaps the most chaotic time is two weeks leading up to moving day. Donít worry, we have a checklist ready for you, so you can be prepared. 


2 Weeks Before The Move


First, you should make sure that your car is ready for the drive, if youíre driving to your new house. Even if youíre hiring a moving company, youíll need to know that your car can handle the trip and that your movers and you have maps available. Even in the age of GPS, this is a good idea just in case you lose service on the road.


Next, youíll need to get cleaning. You should begin cleaning any of the rooms in your house that have been emptied out including closets. This is a good time to make one last check that everything has been packed. If you need to make any kind of arrangements to have your old home or your new home professionally cleaned, you should do so at this time. It will be much easier to have your new home painted and cleaned before you arrive with all of your stuff.   


You need to get your records in order. Any prescriptions that you have must be transferred to a new pharmacy nearby. Itís a good idea to keep all of your important documents in a safe such as passports, financial statements, deeds, titles and wills.  


Youíll need to get your family prepared for the move as well. Be sure that you know where pets and kids are going and how theyíre getting there. Collect all other valuable items such as jewelry and family heirlooms and pack them somewhere for safe keeping.  


One Week Before The Move


The last week in your home might be kind of stressful and emotional. Make sure that everything is packed at this point. Label each box for easy unpacking once you get to your new place. You could easily forget whatís in each box by the time you get there! 


Other items of concern:

  • Confirm the move-in and closing dates with your real estate agent.
  • Arrange to pay your movers.   
  • Make a plan in case the movers end up running behind and you get to your home before your stuff does. 
  • Back up your computer and keep a drive with the files on it in the safe. 
  • Dispose of anything hazardous within your home like paint and chemicals.
  • Change your address with the Post Office if you havenít already done so.
  • Cancel or change newspaper and magazine subscriptions. 
  •  Find meals that you can make using the remaining food in your fridge. 
  • Empty lockers at school and the gym. 

Return borrowed items to friends and family.

There will be quite a bit left for you to do once you get to your new home. Youíll need time to get established. Moving is exciting and stressful all at the same time! With a plan, youíll be on your way to a smooth move!

Are you a productive homebuyer? If not, you may miss out on an opportunity to acquire your dream residence.

A productive homebuyer understands the ins and outs of the real estate market. As such, this individual may be better equipped than others to purchase a top-notch residence at a budget-friendly price.

Ultimately, operating as a productive homebuyer may be easier than you think Ė here are three tips to ensure that you can become a productive homebuyer in no time at all.

1. Narrow Your Home Search

If you know what you want to find in a dream home, you can maximize the time and resources at your disposal.

For example, if you prefer a home in a big city, you can start searching for houses in the city of your choice. Or, if you enjoy the unparalleled serenity of small town life, you may want to focus exclusively on houses in various towns.

You also should consider your day-to-day activities as you kick off your home search. If you attend college classes every day, you may want to find a house close to school. Comparatively, if you regularly take the bus to work, you may want to consider homes that provide quick, easy access to public transportation.

2. Establish a Price Range

Although you know that you want to buy a home, you may have no idea what it will cost to obtain your dream home. However, if you enter the housing market with a home price range in hand, you can quickly and effortlessly navigate the homebuying process.

Meet with banks and credit unions in your area. That way, you can learn about myriad home financing options and choose a mortgage that complements your finances.

Don't forget to ask bank and credit union professionals for mortgage recommendations and suggestions as well. These mortgage specialists are happy to teach you about many mortgage options and ensure that you can make an informed home financing decision.

3. Work with a Real Estate Agent

A real estate agent is a homebuying expert who will do everything possible to help you optimize your productivity. If you collaborate with a real estate agent throughout the homebuying process, you can increase the likelihood of getting the best possible results.

A real estate agent will set up home showings, negotiate with a home seller's agent on your behalf and help you get the best price on a home. By doing so, this housing market professional will ensure that you can enjoy a seamless homebuying experience.

Let's not forget about the advanced housing market knowledge that a real estate agent possesses, either. A real estate agent understands the challenges of buying a home and will help you identify and overcome these difficulties. He or she will even answer any homebuying questions, at any time.

Become a productive homebuyer today Ė use the aforementioned tips, and you can maximize your productivity as a homebuyer and reap the benefits of a quick, efficient homebuying journey.
