Delaware Packing and Moving: This, Too, Shall Pass

 When you first contemplate packing and moving to or from Delaware, it’s advisable to take a deep breath first, then close your eyes and mentally recall the best, most positive moments from past moves.

Okay, if there aren’t any of those, try thinking of some bracing truism like “This, too, shall pass” or “The night is darkest just before the dawn.” Realistically, the packing and moving will be over before you know it. Those visions of jackknifed moving vans and your good china strewn across the Interstate…they’re NOT going to happen!

Not only that, but you can do some painless preparation for the move, whether or not you decide to go with one of Delaware’s professional movers. Here are some reminder do’s and don’ts. Let’s take the don’ts first:

DON’T:

  • Don’t procrastinate if there is any possibility that you will be using professional movers. The best movers can be booked up months in advance, especially if you think you’ll be moving near the end of the month. Get on-site written estimates, of course.
  • Don’t water plants for a couple of days before the move.
  • Don’t buy just one black marker. You WILL set it down somewhere and lose it as soon as the packing gets ferocious (which is when you most need to mark the cartons with where they’re going).

…and my favorite:

  • Don’t move boxes you haven’t opened since your last move!

DO:

  • Take out the measuring tape and determine the dimensions of the destination areas meant to house your furniture. You can avoid going to the trouble and expense of moving furniture that’s too large to fit…(think of it as garage sale fodder).
  • Start collecting cardboard boxes early. All sizes come in handy. There can’t be too many of the small boxes for fragile items: well bubble-wrapped, they’ll fit inside the larger ones.
  • Leave folded clothing inside dresser drawers. You can move the drawers separately if they make the whole thing too heavy (professionals will just pick up the whole thing).
  • Take your time when it comes to unpacking. This can actually be quite fun to do: to arrange things exactly as you want them to be in your new place! Remember these moments, so the next time, you’ll be able to close your eyes and mentally recall the best, most positive, etc. 

Some people do put off hunting for a new Delaware home because of the dreaded packing and moving that goes along with a change of digs. But if your family’s lifestyle has outgrown your current residence, most of the trauma of moving can be avoided by a little pre-move organization. I help with more than just buying and selling: my Delaware real estate clients are able to count on my assistance in all aspects of the process, every step of the way!

Best of the 5 Seasons for Buying Delaware Houses

If you are a well-organized prospective Delaware house buyer, you have been weighing many factors as you prepare to start serious house hunting. One of the factors to consider is seasonal: that is, which of the five seasons is most favorable for buying a house?

It’s a fact that the most heavily favored among the seasonal choices is the traditional “peak selling season,” Spring-into-summer is the traditional busiest period for Delaware residential activity—and logic dictates that there must be persuasive reasons why so many Delaware house buyers opt to make their offers then. But persuasive counter-arguments also abound—both for selling and buying a house. Briefly, here are the most common leading reasons for choosing one season over another for buying a house:

Winter: least competition with fellow buyers, hence fewer prospects for a bidding war

Spring: traditional popularity brings the widest selection of new listings

Summer: most convenient time for travel and concentrated house hunting

Fall: most motivated sellers: highest volume of new asking price reductions

There they are—each of the seasons along with frequently cited reasons why they tend to foster the best buying opportunities. Since you have probably noted that I promised to discuss five rather than just four seasons, here’s that extra one (it’s my choice):

Your season: that is, the season when your financial preparations are complete, your professional and family schedules coincide to allow ample house hunting time, and it also feels like the time is right to get going to find your new Delaware house.

This fifth season is the one that holds the greatest prospects for buying the Delaware house you’ll be excited to call your own. The calendar provides good alternative reasons for choosing any of the traditional seasons, yet the perfect “house of your dreams” might crop up or disappear in any one of them. Your season will always be the best time to get serious about house hunting—and with any luck, that’s when you’ll land a terrific home.

 

P.S. That’s also the season when I’ll be standing by to supply maximum effort for the enterprise! Call/Text me Russell Stucki at (302) 228-7871, email me at russellstucki@remax.net, visit more listings at www.beachrealestatemarket.com
