This is the second part of our series on tips that will make moving in the winter easier. If you wish to read the first in the series, you can find that here.
Another great option to minimize the stress of moving during the winter is to remain flexible with your expectations for your move. This doesn’t simply mean be more thoughtful when packing or making arrangements, nor does it insinuate you should not have set standards in place–but rather to approach the moving process with more patience, as external forces are working against you. This can include factors such as the unpredictable weather or busy holiday events that may take up your time. Approaching the move with the understanding that not all things are within your control can take much of the pressure off of you as you work through your preparations.
Also, by spreading your move over multiple trips, you’re able to lessen the burden by spreading the work out. For instance, coordinating your closing date to allow you to have some overlap, even as little as a few days can make all the difference. For this step, some private buyers will provide sellers with the convenience of selecting their closing date, such as BC House Buyer. These off-market buyers bring an added level of convenience to sellers, and will often accommodate the move to work for them at no extra cost.
Overall, moving during the winter can be more stressful than moving during the warmer summer months–but it doesn’t have to be this way. By following these few simple tips, your relocation will go off without a hitch.
