You're finally in your new home. Now it's time to truly make it your own. The experienced agents at Advance Realty Direct are available to help even after your move, and have come up with some ideas on how to help you settle into your new home.
Still inundated with boxes? We suggest designating one room as a staging area. This way you won't feel overwhelmed every time you walk by them. Give yourself a reasonable daily or weekly goal to unpack the remaining boxes. Another idea is to choose one room to finish first so you have a comfortable place to relax.
Unless you moved into a brand new home, someone else lived there before you and their style is more than likely still evident in some areas. Here are several low-budget quick fixes you can make so your new home better reflects your taste and personality.
Moving can be very stressful on kids. Assigning fun, creative projects is a good way to not only keep them busy, but to also help them develop a connection to their new home.
A great way to put down roots in your new home is to plant. Whether you have a yard or only a patio, there is always room to grow something.
After you've settled a bit, invite some of your neighbors over for a casual house warming party. Keep it low key and fun, but don't wait too long to do it or it just becomes awkward. A front yard BBQ or cocktail hour with some appetizers is a great way to mingle without stressing yourself out too much.
From grocery stores to pizza joints, it's going to take a lot of time and testing to find your favorite "go-to" places. Create a score sheet and have the family rate each place you try. This is a fun, interactive way to get everyone's input and make a group decision. When you've decided on your faves, make sure to sign up for their store cards and membership rewards if available.
