Relocating 🏡 ? Here are some helpful tips and tricks!

Where oh where should you relocate to? Whether you’re relocating for a job in a new city, or just moving to get closer to family, a little bit of planning can go a long way in avoiding the stress and anxiety related to relocation.
I’m Maya Crelan Ray with David Lyng Real Estate. You can’t find your things, boxes are everywhere, then add children or pets to the list of things to manage, and it can an uphill battle. And on the other hand, it can also be a time of excitement. Your first step in moving to a new place is to research your new location–Maybe you already have a home lined up, maybe you don’t. Either way, research is your best ally before you relocate somewhere new. Find out the options for entertainment and leisure at the new place. If you have children, research school options. If you’ll be job hunting, look up jobs and companies online before you move so you’re ready to apply and interview once you get there. Then, choose a neighborhood–try visiting your new home or neighborhood before you move in, or use Google Maps to give you a good idea of what to expect of your neighborhood and nearby transit. And finally, plan your move–Moving checklists and labels will come in handy. Remember to label all of your boxes to make unpacking easier and avoid your essential items getting misplaced. Keep important documents and personal items readily available and make eating and sleeping arrangements beforehand. As an extra hint-let, your children decorate their boxes that way you know exactly where these go and they feel a part of the process.
Relocating has different effects on different people, but the process is exhausting for all. Starting over in a new place is indeed challenging and requires patience and determination. But you can do it, and with the tips mentioned above, I hope your relocation will be more comfortable.
