Preparing Your Family For a Move

September 7, 2010 - Updated: September 7, 2010

There are a lot of preparations that need to be made when buying and selling a home.  You have to arrange financing, prepare your property so that it's attractive to potential buyers, start the process for a new home, and on and on.

A great REALTOR will help you do all that.

But there is one item on the list that's as important as the rest : Preparing yourself and your family.  You want to make sure everyone is prepared for the excitement- and, yes, sometimes turbulence- of selling a home and buying another.  Here are some tips to help you do just that :

Engage the Kids

Get them involved, as much as possible, in the decisions.  Ask them to make a list of the features they want most in a new home.  Get them excited about the new friends they'll be able to make in the new neighbourhood and assure them that they can keep in touch with their current friends after the move.


Stay Healthy

With all the additional activities associated with buying and selling a home, it's all too easy to skip exercises, home cooked meals and other healthy activities.  Make a commitment to not let that happen.


Keep Up With Family Time 

Like going to the beach with the family on weekends ?  Enjoy a game of golf with your spouse or kids ?  Kids involved in soccer, baseball or other sports ?  Do your best to keep up with these activities.


Ask For Help

Even the most well organized move doesn't go smoothly 100% of the time.  When you and your family are feeling some stress, don't be afraid to ask for help.  Give your Realtor a call !!
