There’s no doubt that the real estate market on the Crystal Coast has been heating up. We’re seeing many families relocating to Carteret County to make our hometown their new home! We’re excited to welcome new folks to our lovely little corner of the world. We understand that moving to Carteret County, or anywhere new, can be challenging and stressful. Here are some tips to help you have a stress-free move!

• Get Organized & Plan Ahead

Give yourself about 8 weeks before you have to actually make the move. Start packing early so that the move doesn’t sneak up on you and cause a very stressful couple of days. Get organized before you ever start packing. Develop a system to label and organize boxes and items.

• Get Rid of Clutter

When packing, get rid of as much clutter and unnecessary “stuff” as possible. Getting rid of clutter – whether it’s thrown out or donated – will help you have less to pack up and unpack again.

• Have A Back-Up Plan

Even if you’re organized, it is inevitable that something unforeseen may occur. Have a back-up plan in case the movers are late, your moving date gets delayed or something else happens. If you’re prepared, these bumps in the road won’t cause you as much stress.

• Keep Your Important Items & Valuables With You

If you’re hiring movers, make sure you keep your important files and paperwork and any valuables with you. No matter how trusted the moving company may be, it’s better to not risk important items being lost or stolen.

• Make A List of Stuff To Do Once At Your New Home

We know that you will have no shortage of to-do lists once you’ve started moving into your new home. However, it will help to go ahead and make list(s) before the move so that you can just check off the items as you go. Make a list of tasks such as contacting the new power and cable companies, getting water turned on, setting up the internet, etc.

If you’re considering moving to Carteret County, we’d love to help you find your dream home. The Crystal Coast is a beautiful and fun place to make home. Let our experienced and local real estate agents assist you in your move to the Crystal Coast!
