Moving Tips

According the the US Census, more than 35 million people, or approximately 11% of the population, relocate each year.  Of course, not everyone moves to Arizona, but for those of us that do, you will appreciate this.  

If you think Buying or Selling a Home is stressful, try MOVING when it is 110+ degrees outside.  This is Arizona folks, where temperatures over 110 degrees during the summer is the norm.   For various reasons folks like to move during the summer, so I'm taking an opportunity to give some friendly advise.  Don't worry this is short, because I'll be adding more information to this topic all month.   

Step 1:

  • Lighten Up:  Whether you're hiring movers or renting a truck and getting help with the heavy lifting, it pays to lighten the load.  Take the time to go through your belongings and determine what to donate, sell, discard, and what to keep.  Here is the thing, if it's broken, hasn't been used for years, or you just don't see yourself needing it in the future, it's ok to let go.   You can sell it on Ebay or Craigslist if it's unused and in good condition.  Donate items to local charities (get the receipt), and take a tax write-off if possible.
  • Recycle:  Items that are broken or worn out may be recycled.  Call a junk removal service to responsibly dispose of items that should not end up in our landfills.

Tomorrow you'll see some step by step directions for getting this done.  

Stay hydrated and inside as much as possible and enjoy your summer.
