At it’s best, packing and moving your things when you buy a new home is a lot of work. At its worst, it can be downright dangerous if you aren’t careful when lifting and moving heavy items.

A necessary evil of moving to a new home, packing is probably the least favorite part of moving for your average homeowner. However, there are ways you can make this process easier, saving you time and ensuring that decorating your new homes is a simple and satisfying task.

In today’s post, I’m going to run down the list of 5 packing and moving tips to help make your move faster and easier than you thought possible.

1. Cleaning and decluttering

One of the best times to clean out your home is leading up to a move. First, if you’re selling your old home, it will pay off to make the house as clean and uncluttered as possible to attract potential buyers. However, you’ll also likely find that there is a lot of junk that you simply don't need to bring to your new home.

When packing each room, keep a garbage bag with you for things you might want to donate or throw away. A good rule of thumb is to ask yourself if you’ve used or appreciated the item in the last two years. If not, you might find that it’s easier just to get rid of.

2. Schedule your packing

There are some items in your home that you’ll want available up until the day you move. Others you might not need for weeks or months until after you’ve settled into your new home. You can lessen your workload by spreading out your packing process across the span of a month or so, tackling a few items each week.

A good example of planned packing is to start packing your seasonal clothing that you won’t need until the next winter or summer.

3. Have someone carry away your old junk

If you have bulk items or furniture that you plan on getting rid of, put them on Craigslist or call a donation center with pick-up a month in advance of your move. This will help you get rid of large items without ever having to leave your home.

4. Hiring movers

Hiring movers might be out of some new homeowners’ budgets. However, there are certain times of the week that you can get lower prices. Movers are typically the busiest on the weekend, often making weekdays a more affordable alternative.

5. Find your local box stockpile

There’s typically no need to spend money on boxes if you give yourself enough time to find a good supplier. Some grocery and department stores will give away their boxes for free because you’re saving them on recycling costs.

Another good option is your local liquor store who probably has several empty wine and beer cases to give away.

If your home has lingered on the real estate market for many months, there is no need to worry. Revisit your home selling strategy, and you can find innovative ways to promote your house to the right groups of buyers.

Now, let's take a look at three tips to help you revamp your home selling strategy.

1. Consider the Homebuyer's Perspective

One of the reasons why your house might have failed to generate interest from homebuyers is you have not effectively accounted for the buyer's perspective. Fortunately, now is a great time to take a fresh approach to highlight your home to dozens of prospective buyers.

Think about why you bought your house in the first place. Then, you may be better equipped than ever before to prioritize home upgrades and ensure your residence matches or exceeds buyers' expectations.

Furthermore, it may be beneficial to cut down on clutter inside your house. Because if you have a clutter-free home, you can make it easy for buyers to envision what life may be like if they purchase your residence.

2. Assess Your House Listing

A home listing is important, particularly for a seller who wants to stir up significant interest from buyers. If at first your home listing misses the mark with buyers, you can always revise it as needed.

Ensure all of the information included in your home listing is accurate and up to date. That way, you can help buyers make an informed decision about your residence.

In addition, include high-resolution photographs in your home listing. With top-notch photographs incorporated into your home listing, homebuyers can view each room of your house at their convenience. Plus, these photographs may help you differentiate your residence from other available houses.

3. Reinvent Your Home's Curb Appeal

Curb appeal can make a world of difference in any housing market, at any time. If you enhance your house's curb appeal, you may be able to move one step closer to selling your house.

Trim the hedges, mow the lawn and perform other home exterior improvements as soon as possible. Also, if you need assistance with home exterior upgrades, you can always reach out to landscapers and other home improvement professionals for support.

Hiring a great real estate agent may help you streamline the home selling journey too. In fact, a real estate agent who understands the ins and outs of the housing market can offer lots of guidance as you sell your home.

A great real estate agent will set up home showings and open house events, negotiate with a buyer's agent on your behalf and help you prepare for a home closing. And if you ever have concerns or questions along the home selling journey, a real estate agent is available to respond to them.

Accelerate the home selling journey – use the aforementioned tips, and you can rework your home selling strategy and boost the likelihood of a fast, profitable home sale.
