The Crystal Coast Helpful Relocation Tips

Buying a home in a new place doesn’t have to be overwhelming, especially if you have a local area expert on your side! Here at Linda Rike Real Estate, we’ve got you covered with helpful relocation resources.

Plan Your Move Ahead of Time

Picking up and moving is quite the process. Before the big day arrives, make sure you’ve...

  • Secured a moving company or rented your own U-Haul
  • Stocked up on packing materials
  • Contacted your agent and made plans for closing on your new home

As Moving Day Approaches

Make moving day easier on yourself and don’t forget to...

  • Label (and maybe even color-code) all boxes
  • Donate or sell belongings that aren’t making the move
  • Solidify any last-minute details with your movers

During the Move

Congratulations, you’ve made it! As you’re sealing the deal on your new home, here’s what you should keep in mind...

  • Keep important documents like social security cards and birth certificates with you at all times
  • Designate an “open me first” box with personal essentials you can’t live without
  • Wait to unpack so that you can fully soak up the first sweet moments in your new home
