Moving doesn't have to be hard

Ever since our family has grown by three, we have outgrown our house. We have been planning on finding a bigger house for the last year. There are many decisions to make when you decide to move.

First, you have to make is deciding what real estate company to go with. Choosing the right company doesn't have to be hard. Think about what you want out of your real estate agent and do your research and ask other people that recently moved for their opinion. Picking someone who is right for you is important since some Realtors have you sign contracts, binding you with them. Some bigger real estate companies that might be a good choice are Mel Foster and Ruhl & Ruhl.

Another decision to make is whether to hire movers or not. There are lots of moving companies out there. This could be overwhelming without help. The Internet can be a great help in finding good deals on moving. One such site is Billy's Money Saving Club. They can negotiate deals with moving companies and let you compare different moving companies prices and services. For example, if you are looking for Phoenix moving companies, you can find out the best deal you can get from local moving companies in Phoenix.

The best way to make moving easy is to make a checklist of important things you need to do. Go through your checklist so you don't forget anything. Keeping organized is the key step in making moving go smoothly. Soon, you will be all moved in and enjoying your new home!

Oh Moving!! We did it about two years ago from a house we lived in for 11 years! I am embarassed to say we filled a very large dumpster! It was overwhelming at the time, but so glad we did it. We only had 7 kids then, but still needed the room. Good luck!

The first time we moved 7 years ago, we hired moved and I was stunned at the cost - $1000! And we were only moving 10 miles away! But honestly, it was worth the cost if only for the peace of mind - kwim?

The last time we moved we hired a moving company and it made it seem so effortless. Next time we move we'll definitely be hiring movers again!!
