Selling Your Home Before the School Year Starts
Preparing Your Home For a Move
Preparing your home for a move can oftentimes be the most daunting part of moving. Packing, sorting, cleaning, and getting rid of all of the unnecessary items you have collected over the years can be tricky if you do not have a plan in place.
Start by making a list of all of the items you know you will need right when you move into your new home. If the timeframe is close to the start of the school year, make a separate box of all of the items your children will need including bookbags, school supplies, lunch boxes, and school clothes so you can easily access them.
When you declutter and organize your boxes before you move, you will feel more prepared and will spend less time moving in and more time getting acclimated to your new community! We also suggest decluttering your home before you sell. This way, your home’s true colors shine in photos and videos. Once you move, your new home will feel much cleaner with reduced clutter lying around.
Saying Your Goodbyes
While listing your home with Mark Spain Real Estate, you will not need to stress or worry about the sale of your home. Your agent will guide you through the process and ensure you are in the best hands possible from the beginning of the transaction to the very end at the closing table. After you decide to start selling your home before the school year starts, it is time to say goodbye to your friends and family in your community.
A fun way to bring a positive, fun light to the situation is throwing a goodbye dinner for you and your friends. Invite their kids and have a grill out in the summer as your last hoorah. This way, you can make joyous last memories in your old home with your loved ones. The children will have fun and will remember it forever. Many sellers might worry about dirtying up their homes before the move. When selling your home through our Guaranteed Offer program, you will not have to worry about a clean home for showings and open houses. You can continue to make memories while we source buyers for your home!
Visiting Your New Home
If it is possible, visit your new home a few times to get your children used to the idea of moving. If they see a multitude of children playing, amenities, and a place they can fit in, they will be more apt to the idea. If you are close enough to your new home, let your children start sports teams or recreational activities beforehand (or right when you move if you are far away) so they can make friends their age easily!
Also, check the school’s website to see when tryouts are for sports teams. Some tryouts are in the summer or the prior school year. If your child missed the tryouts, you can see if the school will grant them a tryout due to being a new student! Here are some ideas of sports teams or recreational activities we would recommend for you and your family:
- Softball or baseball
- Cheerleading teams
- Swim teams
- Church camps
