If you are eager to move to pastures new but you can’t bear the stress of listing your property, viewing new homes, organizing the removals people, packing, and dealing with property lawyers, you may be tempted to stay put instead. Moving home should be fun, exciting, and help you to feel more optimistic about the future. All too often, you are pulling your hair out because your house isn’t shifting but you’ve found your dream property and the real estate fees can be astronomical. While a stress-free move sounds like something out of a fairytale, it can be done. Read on to find out how.

Selling Up

If you want the ultimate stress-free move, forget about listing your pad in the first place. If you sell to Seller’s Advantage, you can part with your property by selling to a cash buyer. These sales go through swiftly and without any hiccups. Cash buyers are eager to get the transaction done as fast as you are. While you might not get the biggest bang for your buck, you can offload your dwelling without stress allowing you to move to your dream pad quickly. All you need to do is instruct a property lawyer to guide you through the sales process and you can pocket your equity to put towards the deposit on a new pad.

Removals Firms

If you are nervous about packing up the belongings that you have accrued over the last decade, consider whether you need it all. If you have lots of ‘stuff’ in your attic gathering dust, don’t assume that you need to take this with you to a new home. Moving can be a great excuse to declutter. Consider listing those items that you haven’t used in over twelve months on a site like eBay. Start your auction low and simply pocket any cash that you make. Donate anything that isn’t sellable and dump those things that are broken and taking up space.

If you still have a mammoth amount of furniture, knick-knacks, and heirlooms to pack, don’t do it alone. There are plenty of removals firms now that have a dedicated packing service. Professionals will head to your home complete with premium quality packaging materials to ensure that your antique mirror remains protected in transit. Opt for a firm with excellent reviews and take a load off when it comes to packing.

Budget

If you are tempted to look at those houses out of your budget, stop. There’s nothing worse than finding a home that you fall in love with only for it to be out of reach financially. This can cause a lot of stress. Instead, stick to your budget and only look at pads within your financial limitations. Consider purchasing the worst house on the best street if you are excited at the prospect of getting your hands on a fixer-upper to put your own stamp on a pad. This can help you to outperform the market and create your forever home with plenty of equity in it. 

Follow this guide and you can discover the bliss of a stress-free house move.
