There are few things in life more stressful than moving. You start out hopeful and starry-eyed with an armful of empty boxes and a dream of a home with an open floor plan and lots of natural light. The next thing you know you have accidentally packed away your cell phone and every home you have looked at brings new meaning to the term “fixer-upper”. Luckily, there are professionals that can help cross some items off your moving to-do list.
Just Like Tetris
Nothing fills up a friend’s weekend faster than asking for their help to move. Suddenly the beloved Aunt they have never mentioned is in town, or an old golf injury is acting up and you know that no amount of pizza or beer will be enough to bribe them into helping. When it comes time to pack up, on top of lifting furniture that gets heavier with each step, you find out that all the hours of Tetris you played as a kid didn't adequately prepare you to fit all your boxes on the moving truck. It is almost enough to have you scrap it all and become a minimalist. But before you swear off material possessions forever, consider hiring professional movers. They are experts at square pegs and round holes and will have it packed in no time, leaving you to work on your Tetris high score.
Location, Location, Location
Finding the right home for your family to live in is akin to finding a needle in a haystack. Sorting through houses looking for one that fits your needs in a good school district with an easy commute to work is perhaps the most difficult task of all. It can be both time-consuming and frustrating trying to do it yourself. Having a real estate agent, like those at the Olivia Cooley Group, is like having a genie. They take your wish list and just like magic, they return with houses that meet your criteria, making it easier to find your home. The right agent will have you in the perfect place that fits your family and budget before you can google what exactly escrow means.
Moving can be a stressful event, but with the help of professionals, it does not have to drive you to insanity. They are there to do the heavy lifting, sometimes literally. Finding the right real estate agent, and hiring movers can save you time and stress, allowing you to concentrate on more important things like making new memories.
