Making your move simple


Having an efficient, well-managed move will save you time and money, and also create a smoother transition into your new home.Your move should be pleasant for your family, so everyone can enjoy the new home.

Here are 10 proven tips to help make your move a trouble-free experience from start to finish:

  1. Set a budget and stick to it.
  2. Hire reliable movers and be clear about your expectations. Also understand their company policies.
  3. Take care of the details, such as: shut off or transfer utilities, contact your bank, contact credit card issuers and any other company that regularly sends you mail. Be sure to change your address with the post office.
  4. Make a packing list. Go room to room and make an inventory list. Organize first by room, then by type of item (furniture,linens, fragile items, etc.). Once you have a full list, use highlighters to color code all items into three categories: keep, sell or give. 
  5. Get rid of everything you don't want or need!
  6. Start first by boxing things you use less often, such as off season clothes, extra linens, or tchotchkes. Clearly label each box with its contents the the room it will go to in the new place.
  7. Plan to transport the valuables yourself.
  8. Prep your new home. If possible, go to your new home before moving day to clean and make sure the utilities have been turned on.
  9. Show the movers which items you want loaded last, and therefore unloaded first. Have as many items as possible ready to go- this should be almost everything in your home. 
  10. Donate canned goods and food items so you don't have to move them.Organizations can help you clear our your pantry while also helping those in need.

Tips to Thrive in a Seller's Market

Right now home inventories are low. This is a seller's market. Buying in this situation can be difficult, and there are often bidding wars for homes. These tips will help you ensure you get the home you want to closing.


  1. Treat your hunt seriously. House hunting must be your priority, not your weekend hobby. Check new listings regularly, be prepared to drop everything to view a home when it hits the market, and be ready to make a quick decision. 
  2. Bring paperwork, not promises. Want to be taken seriously by the seller? When you visit homes, bring a mortgage pre-approval letter and a “proof of funds” form from your bank showing you have enough to cover the down payment. 
  3. Consider waiving what-ifs. Homebuyers often include contingencies when making an offer so they won’t lose their deposit if, for example, the home doesn’t pass inspection. Waiving contingencies could help you close a deal, but this defnitely is not a move for the faint- hearted. To gauge your risks, consult your Realtor and check www.realtor.com/ advice/buy/what-really-happens-when-you-waive-contingencies. 
  4. Don’t play hardball. This isn’t the time to  try to lowball on price. Bid aggressively—while still staying within a monthly budget you can afford. 
  5. Widen your search. You’ll increase your chances of finding a property if you’re willing to consider homes outside your ideal neighborhood and houses that may need some remodeling or renovations. 
In this market The Mark Card Team wants to help you find the best home in your price range. We will work with you and for you to help you thrive. For more information check us out at www.MarkCardTeam.com. Or contact us at (386)566-8091.
