Here is Part 2 of my 2-part series discussing the relocation services I provide to buyers who are moving to the Carlsbad area or other North San Diego County communities, and Carlsbad area sellers who are relocating out of the area.
If you missed Part 1, we talked about (1) my blogs that are a great resource of information, (2) my Relocation Checklist (you will want a copy of that!), and (3) the value of videos and photos and how I use them to help you in your house hunting.
Questions to Ask Your Movers – A Checklist
If you are hiring a moving company there are some important questions to ask the companies you are interviewing. It’s critical to pick the right one to pack and move your household goods to your new home . Not all moving companies are the same, and the more detailed information you have, including estimated moving costs, the better your decision will be. This checklist will help you focus on the relevant issues and get the answers you need to make the right decision about who to hire. ASK ME ABOUT THE CHECKLIST!
Relocation Tips Video Series
To give you a great overview of relocation, I created a video playlist, Relocation Tips and Advice on my YouTube Channel. There are 19 short videos on most of the matters you should know about before you relocate – things like getting pre-approved, moving with a corporate relocation package (if applicable), renting vs. buying when you are relocating, making the most of house hunting trips, and other important topics. Check these videos out on the go on your smartphone!
And if there are other issues important to you let me know and I will write an article and do a video for you!
Believe it or not I have lots of boxes – REAL moving boxes in different sizes – and paper, and I continue to collect them from different clients I work with, and share them with those in need. If you are moving locally, or out of the area, I am happy to drop some off at your door, then pick them up when you are done if you are moving locally. Or feel free to keep them if you wish, or otherwise donate them.
And when we are preparing your home for the market, these boxes might come in handy to help get your home ready for showings (you are moving anyway, so why not start packing!?).
Plus if you move here from out of town and buy a home through me I will pick up and recycle your unwanted boxes after you are done unpacking.
Relocation is a tough journey, from start to finish – in terms of planning, preparation, and emotionally – and a trusted REALTOR to help you navigate all the steps is important. If you are thinking about making a move to the Carlsbad area, or from here to another part of the country, let me know – I’m happy to help you make the purchase or sale of your home, and the overall relocation, as trouble-free as possible and share MY personal and business experience with you.
I hope you will give me a call at (760) 840-1360 so we can discuss your needs and plans, and answer any questions that you have. I’m happy to help you in the planning and preparation process, even if your move is in the future. And perhaps you are just considering a move and need to talk about the issues with someone who knows!!
