Moving house is incredibly exciting. You are beginning a new chapter in your life and, if you are also moving to a new area, you will be able to make many new memories exploring your new home.
With that being said, moving house can also be completely and utterly terrible. You have to make an awful lot of decisions and yet do not have control over the buying and selling process.
There is a lot of waiting and it can lead to a build up in stress. A 2021 survey by YOPA found that 60% of people actually put off moving home because it is so stressful, with worries including that new neighbours could be noisy or the area could have a lot of traffic.
But you cannot live your life thinking about the ‘what if’s! You will find yourself stuck and miserable, wanting to move forward in your life. A big part of that is often a change in house or location.
If you are thinking about moving house Brighton, it is important that you take your time with the move.
Moving house Brighton? Here are some tips…
Find the right area
Find the right house and the right area and once the move is in progress begin packing nice and early.
Brighton is a bustling city with a high student population. If you are after peace and quiet, you must look for areas with a low amount of student housing.
Start packing early when moving house Brighton
Once you have found the perfect area and the perfect house and the buying process is in full swing, start packing.
You do not want to be rushing around in the days before the movers are due to arrive trying to pack up the whole house. This will only add to the stress.
Have a clear idea of what needs to be done at your new house
Does everywhere just need a lick of paint? Do you just need to make it your own?
Or do you need to make bigger changes? A new kitchen, a new bathroom?
These are all the questions you need to have answered before you begin moving in so, if you do need to make bigger changes to the house, you can be ready to do and make arrangements for your belongings.
This does lead to another question: what do you do with your belongings to keep them safe?
