The word – ‘moving’has the potential of causing the fever for most of us!We are just too scared of it, most of the time. The very first task of finding an alternative housing arrangementto settle-in, just sends the thrill waves all across!Not to forget,the cumbersome and tiring exercise of packing and unpacking again and again; along with the probability of things breaking down while on the move – is alone such a big impediment that people often choose against moving or lethargically delay it till eternity. And most of the times, as it so happens, that something or the other, break down!
All of us are well- aware of the stress involved in it. So, just try to weight the amount of effort, which would be required, when you have to shift to a different country; I mean,of course, there exist international moving companies to help you with your chores.
Also, looking out the picture-perfect house in the impeccable neighborhood is a challenging assignment. You need to find out the right broker or the real-estate agent who shows you all the appropriate properties; fitting well within your parameters; matching not just your taste, but more importantly, your budget as well. The key to finding such a dream house is to keep on looking. People keep on looking for weeks and months before finally shifting-in. All of this may seem really cumbersome now; howsoever, I am here to elucidate the process of shifting by sharing some of the tips:
- Empty Your Previous Home
When you are shifting to another house, something needs be done to your previous house. You need to make sure that you get an amazing buyer; an individual, who is very keen to take your place at the price of your desire.
But, I would like to caution you against keeping unrealistic hopes! You need to know, well in advance, the appropriate market price of your house before you put it up for sale. You also need to make sure that your house looks as unoccupied as possible when buyers come to have a look of it. Your couch and carpet might be a great counterpart combination, but when the prospective buyers come in; they, for sure, want to see the void space. Why? Because, this would be lending a helping hand to them; for realizing how their stuff would gel in with the place.
- Be True To The Customers
No virtue has ever been achieved by deceitful means! So, while you are listing the price of your house; list it at a reasonable price, taking into consideration, the number of repairs which are to be made by the future buyer. While your potential customers show interest in your house, be honest about all the faults and repairs required before moving in. It would be an honest gesture of being truthful to the customers; if you offer to pay half of the repair cost. Always keep in mind that, you don’t have to lie about anything – as much as meager it may be; while selling your house.
Finally, the time shall come when you have to move out! You need to pack everything up; obviously, the international moving agencies would help you out, but still, you need to supervise everything. Preferably, use recyclable or used packing boxes, which is an eco-friendly option. Don’t forget to clean up the mess left behind before you shift. This would help you a lot while unpacking at the new place.
