If you are moving soon you have probably thought about packing, hiring a mover and moving day but, have you considered what to do after the move? After the money has changed hands and the boxes are piled up in your new home, the question is… now what?

1. Create a game plan for unpacking

First determine which rooms you will unpack first. You may want to choose one room to unpack and make feel “homey” before moving on to other areas of the house. This way you will have one room in your new home that feels settled.

2. Make the kids feel at home

If you have kids you might want to put unpacking a “kid zone” at the top of your priority list. Moving can be stressful on children. Set up space with their familiar items to help make them feel at home in the new house.

3. Meet the neighbors

Take time to introduce yourself to the neighbors. Become involved in area events and activities as soon as you can. Sign the kids up for sports, after-school activities or other community events.

Buying a new home and making the move can be stressful, but it is what comes after the move that matters most.
