If you’re planning to move out of this nations capital, then Liverpool is a good place to transition to. Like London, it’s a very large and populated city with any different landmarks, and a melting pot of cultures. It’s also well served by public transport, thanks to its comprehensive underground system. A former London resident should feel right at home in this European Capital of Culture. Though, that’s not to say you shouldn’t prepare. A long distance move like this requires plenty of steps. From selling your house to hiring the right companies, there’s lots to do to prepare your home and its occupants for a move like this;
Selling your home is one of the more important parts of moving. It’s where the majority of your income will be coming from, so you’ll want to take all of the necessary steps. First off, you’ll want to make sure all of the necessary repairs are taken care of. Loose drain pipes, skirting boards, wobbly shelves, all of these should be fixed up before you put your property on the market. Give everything a good clean, too. Scrub the carpets, polish the floors and walls, and give everywhere a good vacuum. Take every step possible to make your old place look as good as new. By taking these steps, your home will not only be made more valuable, but it’ll be a more enticing buy. If the buyer has to do less work to bring the place up to code, they are more likely to put down an offer for it.
An effective way to sell your house is to make any prospective buyers feel more welcome. On their viewing day, leave some windows open to let fresh air circulate, and perhaps even leave a few snacks dotted around. And remember to follow the golden rule – don’t follow them around. Let them experience the property their own way, and let them visualise what it would be like if they owned it. The best way to advertise a property is to let it advertise itself.
Moving home can be expensive prospect, so raising a bit of extra cash is a very good idea. Since you’ll be clearing out your old house anyway, have a good look around for goods you won’t be bringing with you. Old clothes, old toys, furniture you don’t need anymore, all of these are sale fodder. Whether you decide to take them to a car boot sale, have a lawn sale, or if you feel like flogging them on eBay, selling your un-needed stuff is a good way to make some extra cash. That, and it’ll clear out the clutter in the old place.
By conducting this fund raising, you’ll have more spare cash to move with, and one of the best ways to spend it is on some professional help. Moving companies, packing companies and cleaning companies are all viable ways to not only make your move less stressful, but more efficient. You’ll be able to get your old house off the market sooner by hiring a cleaner to help make things spotless, and you’ll be able to move into your new place a lot sooner with the help of a removal company and a packing company. All of the heavy lifting, loading, packing and unpacking will be handled in a swift and professional manner if left up to these companies, and as a result, your new home will be prepared for your arrival before you know it.
These are just a few of the steps you can take to help prepare your old and your new place for removal. Out with the old and in with the new, as they say.
