3 Items to Sell Before Moving Day Arrives

by 55+ Active Adult Community -Founders' Ridge 01/05/2020

If you recently sold your home and plan to relocate to a new address, you may need to pack up your personal belongings. And in some instances, there may be items that you can sell before moving day arrives. These include:

1. Furniture

Although your couch, sofa, loveseat and other furniture may have served you well for many years, there is no guarantee that they will fit in your new residence. Furthermore, even if your current furniture fits perfectly in your new house, there may be a risk that it won't complement your new home's décor.

If you have furniture that you don't want to bring to your new home, there is no need to worry. You can always list furniture online or host a yard sale prior to moving day. Or, you may want to donate your furniture to a local charity.

2. Appliances

A refrigerator, washer, dryer and other home appliances can be large and heavy. Therefore, it sometimes may be beneficial to purchase new appliances when you arrive at your new residence rather than allocate time and energy to transport your existing appliances to your new address.

For those who want to get rid of large appliances before an upcoming move, lots of options are available. In addition to selling or donating your current appliances, you can offer your appliances to the individual who is buying your residence. Also, if you face a time crunch, you can provide your appliances free of charge to the person who is buying your home.

3. Home Decorations

Various decorations may have looked great in your current residence. But if you want to give your new home a fresh look and feel, you may want to sell your current decorations prior to moving day.

Generally, there is no shortage of online buyers or yard sale shoppers who may be willing to purchase your home decorations. You can donate your home decorations to a local charity or give them to family members, friends or other loved ones as well.

As you get ready for an upcoming move, you may have a lot of work ahead. Fortunately, moving companies are available that can help you streamline the moving process.

A moving company employs courteous, knowledgeable moving professionals who are happy to assist you in any way they can. These moving professionals can provide recommendations and tips to help you prepare for moving day. And if you have moving day concerns or questions, moving day professionals are ready to address them.

Lastly, if you need to sell your home so you can quickly move from one address to another, you may want to employ an expert real estate agent. With a real estate agent at your side, you can receive plenty of help during the property selling cycle. Best of all, a real estate agent will make it easy for you to sell your residence, get ready for moving day and ensure you can seamlessly relocate to any location, at any time.
