How To Plan A Relocation

by Mignon Lagatta Real Estate Group 10/27/2019

Planning a move is not a decision made quickly - even if you are moving just some streets away from your present location. It requires a detailed arrangement followed to the letter. Poor planning gives rise to poor calculation and poor execution. As soon as you are sure of a relocation, the earlier you began to make plans – the more comfortable the whole process would be for you. 

Planning a move is like trying to solve a puzzle – every piece must be at the right place to ensure you achieve your big picture. If you miss a step in your relocation process or you forget to schedule a stage at the right time, you might end up messing things up and having a disorganized relocation. To help you plan your relocation move, consider the steps below.

Determine Your Moving Timeline

Before you start making your moving preparation, the first thing to do is to ascertain how much time you have before the move. Doing this would help you make your plans and execute them within the time frame. Even if you have a busy schedule, taking an hour or two out of each day to plan and organize would go a long way. 

Prepare Your Moving Materials

Moving materials like boxes, tapes, old newspaper, etc. are some of the items you can get for free from your grocery store. Other things you might need for relocation – you can get from friends and family members. 

Determine Your Budget for The Move

To ensure you don't spend beyond what you can afford, draw out a budget plan. Relocation most times require much money, especially if you are relocating to a long distance. If you are getting assistance from work, ensure you document every amount spent. Determining your budget would give you an idea of how much you can spend on various moving activities. 

Ditch Your Junk

Moving with all your belongings would cost you a fortune, and it's not a wise decision. You do not possibly use all the things you possess and even if you did, not as often as others. Planning a move is the best time for you to be brutal with your luggage selection. Pack only items of necessity and family heirlooms you cannot afford to part with – other things you can give to charity or sell. 

Determine What to Sell

Items that don't make it into your relocating list; you can sell or give to charity. You can decide on what to sell by determining what is essential to you in your new location. Whatever doesn't fit into these criteria – put up for sale. The money generated from selling some of your belongings might come in handy. 

Compare Moving Fee Quotes

If you would need the service of a moving company, ensure you get quotes from more than one moving company – this helps you compare prices.Planning your relocation makes it easier to move without hassles. Ensure you hire a quality moving company to help you get to your new home safely.

Hi, and thanks for visiting. Please allow me to a share a bit about myself and my background.

I’m a Native Nevadan, born and raised in Carson City, and have resided in Reno for the last 13 years. I have two beautiful children who are my first love next to Real Estate. I love the Reno-Sparks-Tahoe lifestyle and all it has to offer and am very proud to call Northern Nevada my home.

I grew up in Real Estate with my mother owning her own Real Estate brokerage in Carson City. Prior to Real Estate I owned my own business in Reno which provided me the knowledge of how important customer service is and that customers always come first.

With each client I deliver personal attention. I listen to what you want, work hard to achieve your goals, and help you manage the entire process. If you ask my clients, they will tell you they felt as if they were my only client.

With putting you first, my knowledge of negotiating the best contracts, of Nevada real estate practices and of individual neighborhoods from Sparks, Reno to Lake Tahoe, it makes me your best choice to sell your home or find you a new home.

In addition to my license as a Realtor, I’m also a Certified Distressed Property Expert, a Certified Residential Specialist, a member of the Northern Nevada Association of Realtors and of the National Association of Realtors. I am the founder of Thank You Ma’am Reno, a local non-profit giving back to other non-profits in the Northern NV community.

I am happy to provide references upon request. Contact me today and let me help your dream of owning a home in Reno, Sparks or Lake Tahoe a reality. Call or text me at 775-771-1557. Or you can email me at [email protected]
