Moving Tips to Vegas

Finding you're dream home is exciting, but let's face it. Moving is not fun. Luckily, our real estate agents have learned a thing or two about moving, and we're here to share some of our hard-earned knowledge.

Whether you're listing your Las Vegas home for sale, or are getting ready to move into your new home, our agents are dedicated to making the process as easy as possible. These are the most common things people forget when they move, and how to avoid forgetting them:

  1. Turning Utilities On and Off
    Few things are more frustrating than arriving at your new home and realizing that the gas hasn't been turned on, or there's no electricity. Be sure to notify your utility companies before you move so all your services are discontinued at your old house, and either moved to or started at your new one. The same goes for Internet service, cable TV, and trash pickup. 
  2. Getting the Right Moving Supplies
    Moving is hard enough, to begin with. Don't let a lack of supplies make it harder. Be sure to stock up on all the packing materials you need, including:
    • Boxes. Get them in a variety of sizes: big ones for lightweight stuff like pillows and bedding, and smaller ones for hefty items like books and kitchenware.
    • Packaging tape. Don't skimp; get the strong stuff so you can be sure your box won't fall apart while you move. 
    • Labels. There are a few different ways you can go, but make sure you have some way of labeling every box, so you know what's in it.  
  1. Making an "Essentials" Box
    Too many families pack everything they own without thinking about what they might need on day one. That can cause a lot of headaches, so save yourself a lot of trouble by packing an "essentials" box that has everything you might need the first day after you move. The precise contents of this box will be different for everyone, but good things to consider include:
    • Toiletries and cosmetics
    • Clothes for your first couple days
    • Snacks and beverages
    • A few of your kids' (or pets') favorite toys
    • Any tools you might need to get set up
  1. Packing All Your Stuff
    Seriously, you'd be amazed how much stuff gets left behind when people move, and not always on purpose. It's easy to accidentally leave things behind when you move, so take extra care to double- and triple-check every corner of your old house before you turn in your keys. Some of the most commonly left-behind items include:
    • Valuables and jewelry 
    • Kitchen appliances like coffee makers and microwaves
    • Personal records
    • Lamps
    • House plants
    • Chargers
    • Trash cans and recycle bins
  1. Letting Everyone Know You've Moved
    You don't want your birthday cards and magazines—or worse, credit card statements and tax returns—sent to your old house after you've moved. It can be exhausting to inform everyone in your life that you've moved, but you'll be glad you did. You can also fill out an official Change of Address form from the U.S. Post Office to cover all your bases. And be sure to tell the DMV!

Relocating with pets - Wardley Real Estate

Las Vegas homes for sale have everything you and your family are looking for, even the furry members of your family! Once you find the home of your dreams and moving time is upon you, you'll need to do some planning to make relocating your pet a success. Being prepared can make things less stressful for everyone and help moving day go smoothly.

  • Start early
    The earlier you can start the moving process the better for your pet. Some pets handle change better than others. You'll be making big changes to their current environment by packing, and doing that a little at a time will make it less disruptive. You'll also be introducing them to a new neighborhood and surroundings. You may have to get them used to staying in a travel carrier or riding in the car. And you'll probably be disrupting their routine with travel and moving day. Giving them time to adjust to all the change can help avoid major problems.

  • Keep your cool
    Dogs and cats can pick up on their owner's stress levels, so keeping yours in check is a necessity. If you don't, your pet may get agitated, over excited, aggressive or otherwise act in a way that isn't going to make things easier.
