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:
…and my favorite:
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.

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 email@example.com, visit more listings at www.beachrealestatemarket.com.
