If you’re thinking of moving house this year, you might be waiting until nearer the time to get organised. There is nothing wrong with this approach, but as some people say moving house is one of the most stressful things you can, why not get organised now? 

Anything that you’re able to arrange in advance is one less thing to when you’re ready to move – and that makes things much easier.




De-Clutter

One of the biggest jobs when it comes to moving house is packing up everything you own. As a general rule, the longer you have lived in a house the more stuff you have to pack and move. If you start de-cluttering now you’re going to make life much easier in the long run. You don’t have to go mad at this stage, especially if your home move is pencilled in for the distant future. However, throwing away a few things a week and even selling the odd thing you don’t use over time can make a difference. If you have a spare room or a cupboard under the stairs that gets used a home for anything that doesn’t really have a place, make your way through this and see what you have been hoarding and can get rid of.


Research Utilities

When you move house it is the perfect time to get your bills and direct debits organised. If you have an idea of where you would like to move to, you can spend some time researching likes like utility companies and broadband providers. Of course, prices and packages may change when you come to actually move but you’ll at least get an idea of who can offer you cost-effective services. You can even look into things such as broadband reviews so you can see which companies come out top for service in the area you’d like to move to.


Who Will You Use To Move House?

Looking into the likely valuation of your home is a good idea too. This gives you an idea of what you can afford when you move and how your finances lie. If you’re planning a move in the very distant future then an online valuation is a great place to start. If you’re looking to move in the near future then getting a valuation now and also looking into which estate agent you might use is a good idea. By getting these things researched and planned now when you feel it is the right time to move, you can hit the ground running.
