Dallas Real Estate – Moving To The Dallas Area? Effective Moving Tips!

At Team Nelson, our Dallas real estate agents understand that for many people, moving to a new home is a real hassle. The worst part? Packing up all of your belongings, then wondering where everything is when you arrive at your new home. If you’re moving to Frisco, Denton, Flower Mound, Highland Village, or any city near the Dallas-Ft.Worth metro area, we have a few “odd” tips to help make the move easier.

Real plates on foam plates. Packing up the dishes can really be a job; you don’t want to break your dinnerware! Instead of wrapping your plates in newspaper, buy some disposable Styrofoam plates and place one between each of the real plates. Voila!

Take pictures. There may be certain displays you have now in your home, such as a China cabinet or breakfront, where the items inside are arranged “just so.” How will you get everything to fit and back in its place when you arrive at your new home? Pictures! Pictures also come in handy should anything get damaged in the move and you need proof for the insurance company.

Stemware and socks. This may sound strange, but it’s great. For breakables such as wine glasses, socks make for great protection – and you’re cutting down on moving supplies and space. Think about which of your belongings may be useful in protecting other, more delicate or breakable belongings.

Ditch the box labeling. Sure, you can spend hours labeling your boxes “kitchen,” “family room,” etc. – but why not use color dots? Create a legend designating which color is for what room, then just stick a colored dot on the carton. Colored duct tape can be used as well. Easy-peasy!

Leave the television for last. Unpacking the TV first isn’t such a great idea; you’re likely to get sidetracked and find yourself sitting on the sofa, rather than unpacking those boxes. After all of the unpacking is done, unpack the television, sit back, and enjoy your new surroundings knowing that most of the work is behind you.

You may also want to consider using old sheets to cover the mattress, sofa, etc. to protect your property from stains and tears, or bagging a cluster of hanging clothes in a trash bag secured around the hangers for faster, easier moving.

    This may be a good firm overall but my experience with Tyna Haygood specifically was one I regret. What she does not tell you is that once your home you are selling is under contract, she will not help you whatsoever with the purchase of your new home. She will not answer her phone and you will be left to negotiate on your own. Very unethical practices by this realtor.

    My husband and I were relocating to Colorado and were very unfamiliar with Denver. We're thrilled we got in touch with Zac because he made the process the easiest it could ever possibly be. We've purchased 2 homes in California before, and this was the easiest process. He was amazing with learning what we were looking for in a home, visiting the homes and sending us video walk-through tours while we were still out of town, and helped us find & close on the home of our dreams! Throughout the process, he was extremely responsive & easy to get ahold of, thoroughly answered all of our questions, and provided us great advice. The rest of his team that help with all the escrow and closing logistics were equally as helpful. On top of it all, they are just good, friendly people that are a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend them!!

    We moved to the area 12 years ago and the Nelsons helped us find not only the perfect home, but the perfect neighborhood, neighbors, schools, etc. It's hard to find a realty team that is patient, available and genuinely concerned in making your home buying experience pleasurable and flawless. We found that with Bill & Andra Nelson and their team and wouldn't recommend anyone else or use anyone else to buy/sell a home.
