Wake Forest-Rolesville Area Relocation Tips

With the right resources and the right real estate professional on your side, you'll find your dream home in the area in no time. If you're getting ready to make a move, then check out a few of these pointers!

Plan Your Move Ahead of Time

If you're gearing up for a move, then you should ideally start prepping a month or two in advance. During this stage, you'll be kicking off the bulk of your packing. Here's how you should get ready:

  • Stock up on packing materials — Snag a few boxes from local stores, get some bubble wrap or packing peanuts, and buy a few rolls of packing tape.
  • Start small — Try packing up one room at time, starting with the spaces you use the least often.
  • Be selective about what you pack — Odds are, you have a few things you could bear to part with. Host a yard sale, post them online, or donate to a good cause.
  • Review all moving documents before signing — This is only necessary if you're using movers, but if you are, make sure to iron out the details well beforehand. 

As Moving Day Approaches

In the days and weeks leading up to your move, you'll want to finish up your packing, keeping these key things in mind:

  • Label everything — Use some sort of system to label which boxes belong in which rooms—your future self will thank you!
  • Pack fragile items last — Wrap glassware, china, and other delicate things in bubble wrap, towels, or spare clothing to prevent breakage.

During the Move

During the move, you won't have access to your things, so you'll want to make sure you keep what you need close by. Lessen the stress of moving day by keeping these tips in mind:

  • Prepare an "essentials bag" — A change of clothes, chargers, cash—keep things you might need on you at all times in a nearby backpack.
  • Make an "open me first" box You're going to want some things like toilet paper, towels, and sheets right away, so put them in a clearly labelled box near the top.
  • Wait to unpack — Take advantage of that empty space in your house, and do a deep clean before you officially move things in.
