Stress-Free House Move: How Our House Move Storage Seaford Will Help

Moving house is a stressful process with many studies and surveys showing that people view it as being the most stressful thing they will do within their life. And it is not surprising that it is so stressful. A house move creates a lot of change and comes with a lot of decisions to be made. House moving storage Seaford cannot stop the changes or the decisions but it can help to alleviate some of the stress that comes with a house move.

Within this article, we are going to talk you through how house move storage Seaford will help to make your house move less stressful. 

But first let’s get into the ins and outs of why a house move is so stressful.

Why Is A House Move So Stressful? 

There are many reasons as to why moving house is stressful. In this section we are going to talk you through some of the main reasons why it is so stressful.

There Are A Lot Of Decisions To Make

Moving house comes with a lot of questions and decisions that need to be answered. And answering them is on you. 

Where do you want to move to? What is your budget? Which house should you view? Which house should you put a bid on? What if you find your perfect house and the bid is rejected?  How much should you sell your current house for? Which estate agent should you pick? Should you use professional movers or do it yourself?

These are all big decisions and trying to gauge the right answer can lead to stress and worry. If you have someone to delegate some of the decisions to, do that. Or, at the very least, ask for help. You can’t be in control or in charge of every single thing. 

You Don’t Have Complete Control

Speaking of control, another big reason many people feel stressed during a house move is due to feeling out of control. You cannot be in control of every single element of it. Much of your house move will be in the hands of third parties such as mortgage advisors, estate agents, your removal company and solicitors. 

And there is nothing that guarantees that your house will sell as quickly as you want or need it to. Or that your bid on your perfect home will be accepted.

We all feel better when we have some element of control over a situation but, when it comes to moving house, you have to let go. Keep regular contact with your mortgage advisor, estate agent etc. but try not to let it stress you out. 

Financial Anxiety 

Moving house costs money, with the average cost of a house move costing nearly £12,000. This cost includes things such as stamp duty fees, legal expenses, removal fees etc. This is a lot of money and so it adds to the stress and worry. 

A way to alleviate some of the financial anxiety is to sit down and really think about your budget. Write down every single expense that is coming your way. Once it is there in black and white you will be able to see if there is anything that can be scaled back and what can wait. Don’t forget to include things like packing material expenses, removal company fees etc. 

It Is A Lot Of Change 

Even if you are super excited to move into a new home, change can be scary for a lot of us. The fear of change is evolutionary. We are wired to fear change, dating back to our ancestors who lived at a time when change could lead to lack of safety, starvation, dehydration or death. 

Moving house is a big change so our response is to feel some level of stress. Even if you are only moving up the road, there is still significant change that can lead you to feeling stressed and anxious. 

Try and focus on the positive, listing all the reasons why this house move is best for you and your family. Find your reasons for why this house move is necessary and exciting, write them all down and give it a read through whenever you feel stress rising because of all the change. It’s a lot now but it will work out for the best.
