Tips for Seniors to Make Moving a Hassle-Free Experience | alecsalameh.com
Whether the ‘sold’ sign has gone up or you anticipate its arrival soon, this means one thing is steadily approaching: moving day. If you are a senior with your sights set on a fresh chapter in a brand-new area, the move is all that stands in your way, but it might seem like an impossible obstacle. The good news is that with a little research and planning, you can turn the key to your new home in no time with a stress-free move. Realtor Alec Salameh shows you how.
Moving isn’t a race. A home houses a lot of stuff (and even more memories), so break it down into manageable tasks. It’s also helpful to create timelines for major to-do list items (when to start packing, for instance) or milestones (such as what needs to be done four weeks before your move). These articles can help you get and stay on track.

Prepare Your Home for Sale
Unless you’re planning on keeping your current home to use as an investment property or a vacation home, you’ll want to sell it as quickly as you can, which is where working with an experienced realtor like Alec Salameh becomes critical. Every day that you hold onto it costs you money, which adds up, especially if you move into your new home before finding a buyer for it. In addition to the initial 5 things you must do before listing a home for sale, these tips can help you sell your home in record time:
- Redesign your mailbox or put a splash of fresh paint on the front door to add some curb appeal.
- Repairs to address before listing your home for sale.
- How to deep clean your home before listing it for sale.
Bring In Help
One of the simplest ways to take the stress out of moving is to hire professional movers. You’ll have peace of mind knowing all your things will be loaded and unloaded with care and arrive at your new home in one piece. If you have items you don’t have a place for in your new home that you don’t want to get rid of, you should also consider renting a storage unit near your new home. Your movers may even be able to unload the items you’re storing there for you.
