    Tip Tuesday: Moving To a New State

    Moving to a new State is a frustrating task, but it isn’t a process you can simply avoid or turn a blind eye to. What you can do is be well informed of the challenges that will be involved and prepare yourself for how to overcome/deal with these challenges.

    Did you know…..A person in the US moves an average of 11.7 % in their lifetime?

    Did you know….19.4% move related to jobs, 30.3% move related to families, and 48% move to decrease their payments on mortgage or taxes?

    Whatever your reason may be and whether you’re moving into or out of CT; we have a few tips to help you along the way.

    1. Contact Harrison Real Estate.  Even if you’re just moving in your state but are in a different state and don’t know where to start…contact us.  Whether you’re in MA, CA, or TX, we can help you begin the process.  How?  Turn to the team you can trust to help you in making a connection with a Realtor in your State.  We can help interview Realtors and connect you to someone you can trust just as much as us with your purchase/sale.  Contact us today.
    2. Early Bird Gets the Worm.  Start planning your move 3-6months in advance.  You are going to need time-off of work to potentially visit your new home State to plan for housing, you’ll need to start the process of getting licenses and banks changed, and you’ll want to research the most cost effective ways to either store or transport your things.
    3. Don’t forget about your Fur-Babies.  Find out about facilities for your pet in your new State such as Vets, daycares, etc.  Also, speak to your current Vet about how to make the move a stress-free one for your pet.  Take a look at Coldwell Banker’s tips from their Homes for Dogs project.
    4. Off-Season Perks.  Moving in the off-season can save you up to 30% because many companies lower rates in the winter.
    5. Stay Healthy.  Moving is stressful…especially when dealing with completely new surroundings in a new State.  Keep yourself healthy by eating right, hydrating, and sleeping enough.  The last thing you need to add to your stress is illness or weakness.
