You’re probably thinking to yourself “why would I want to pile more onto my plate right now??” – but the less there is to move, the easier moving day will be. When moving house
, avoid taking things that you no longer need. Aside from taking up precious packing space, taking these items with you also means you will have more to unpack when you get to your new home. As you go through your current home to pack, take a moment to honestly consider if you need or want to keep all those things that you forgot you had. If possible, donate, and if not, walk it to the dumpster.
Finally, your agent should be someone who you can work with. This means flexibility on the agent’s part in terms of communication (if you are unable to take calls during the day, the agent should be willing to communicate with you via text or email), timely communication (at no point should you feel like you are chasing your agent or not getting answers to your questions), and a willingness to listen to your needs (your agent should not be pushing you towards homes that don’t suit the needs you’ve specified).
