Moving doesn't have to be stressful

Michael Hodges - Thursday, September 15, 2016
Moving can get you out of breath just thinking about it, and while it’s not always pleasurable there are ways to make it stress-free with less anxiety.

Before you move
  • Immediately start making a list of everything that needs to be done from change of address, to lining up a mover, to organizing a yard sale. Keep this list up-to-date and make changes/additions as you think of them. In the long run, this will help keep unexpected events to a minimum. 
  • Once you find out that you are moving, take photos of the inside of your new home as well as doorways and the garage entrance. From those photos, make a rough sketch of where to place the furniture. This will help so you only have to move it once, then make minor adjustments. 
  • Look at those same photos to help plan how to get the furniture in the house in the easiest manner with little to no damage to walls, door jams and the furniture itself. Are there tight turns going through the front door that would make it difficult to bring in a sofa? Maybe it would be better to bring the sofa in through the garage. You get the idea.
  • Take photos of your important documents and belongings, then store them in the cloud or on a flash drive. Dropbox and Google Drive work perfectly for this. 
Moving day
  • Take photos of the back of your TV or sound system with your cellphone. When you get to your new home, this will make putting it back together much easier.
  • Make arrangements to have your small children stay with family or friends. 
  • Don't forget about  your pets! Either board them for the day or have them stay with family or friends. The stress of the move may be too much, so when the moving van is gone, you can introduce them to their new home.
  • If you are moving yourself, put the things you’ll need right away on the truck last. When you get to your new home, they’ll come off first.
  • Pack a box of items that you’ll need in the first 24 hours when you get to the new home. This might include things like medications, coffee maker, coffee and filters, snacks, and food for pets. 
After the dust settles
  • Gather all your receipts. There may be expenses that you can deduct on your taxes. Check with your CPA.
  • Keep a cleaning kit handy for quick wipe ups like fingerprints that can easily be removed. 
Finally, there will be a point that you will have move. If you plan well in advance, the worry and hassle of a move will be greatly reduced. For more tips, click here

Congratulations Tim!

jeannie fredrick - Thursday, September 08, 2016

Congratulations to Timothy Blanchard, a Florida REALTORS® member, who was recently awarded the Graduate, REALTOR® Institute (GRI) designation.  He  joins other top producers in the residential real estate industry who hold the designation across the nation.

Tim earned the “Graduate, REALTOR® Institute” (GRI) Designation by attending a minimum of 60 hours of classroom instruction, covering a variety of subjects including: contract law, professional standards, sales and marketing, finance, and risk reduction. 

In addition, he has learned the fundamentals of brokerage and other areas of real estate specialization. With this designation and through increased awareness of current topics important to the real estate professional, such as legal issues, these REALTORS® can better serve prospective clients and customers.

The GRI designation sets the individuals who have attained it, apart from other practitioners because it indicates to the public that the individual has obtained a professional educational foundation on which to base the services they provide and that they are a member of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®. 

Obtaining the GRI designation is a beneficial way for a REALTOR® to advance their professional image. The extra measure of knowledge and prestige achieved by completing this course work is a tool that will advance a career in real estate on attracting and building new business.

The REALTOR® Institute has been in existence for more than twenty-five years and has graduated thousands of REALTORS®.
