You have heard the saying that “the only thing constant is change” … never truer than in housing transitions.
A client of mine planned to move into a senior living complex that was under construction. She received a move in date and her real estate agent Sharlene Hensrud of RE/MAX Results HomesMSP Team got ready to list her home. Numerous changes happened along the way. The date that her unit would be ready kept being pushed out. During this time, she had a medical emergency that put her in the hospital followed by rehab. Unable to return to her home due to health issues and with her new place in the senior complex not ready she needed to find transitional housing. Meanwhile she needed to get her home on the market quickly. Her daughter who lives out of state contacted me to help with the transition. Her daughter rented a SmartBox and my team and I packed up her condo, filled the box and it was moved to storage. Weeks later her new place was ready, the SmartBox was delivered and my team and I moved her in to her new place.
Although it wasn’t what they had originally planned the transition went smoothly and she is happily settled into her new home.
As we get a chill in the air here in the north, we need to start thinking about prepping for winter. I like to do as much as I can before it gets to cold.
So you have decided to move into a smaller home. Now comes the challenge of what to take with you and what to let go of. Do you have heirloom china or maybe you have an excess amount of cookbooks and cooking magazines? Perhaps you have a garage full of unfinished projects that have ended up in the abyss of good intentions.
