Moving into your new rental property can seem stressful and complicated, but it doesn’t have to be! Whether you’re moving from across town or across the country, by doing just a few simple things, you can make your transition a seamless one.

Before the Move

  • Organize and Declutter: Begin to declutter and organize your belongings, starting with deciding what can be donated, sold, or thrown away.
  • Change your Address: Since it takes a couple weeks for the post office to process this change, the sooner you set it up, the better.
  • Reinforce and Label: When packing your belongings, make sure you do so securely. Keep your delicates well packed and reinforce boxes to prevent breaks.

On Moving Day

  • Keep sensitive documents on hand–you don’t want to lose them in the move! This includes birth certificates, financial records, and other important information!
  • Pack an overnight bag so that you have easy access to your necessities.
  • Welcome home! You did it, you’ve moved into your new home.

After You Move

  • Clean first–it’s much easier to clean without all of your belongings unloaded.
  • Unpack by room to give the process an order and break down everything into several smaller projects. The more you break down the process, the easier it will seam.
  • Enjoy your new home! It’s been a lot of work, but thanks to your organization skills (and these tips), you’ve had a seamless transition into a gorgeous rental property.
