Pros and Cons: Hiring Movers or Moving Yourself

by Alisa Coyle

Moving can be a very stressful event when buying or selling a home. One of the first decisions you will have to make is whether you will spend the money to hire a professional moving service or rent a truck or van and take on the work yourself with a “DIY” move. Here are just a few of the points that you should consider for each:

Advantages to Moving Yourself:

The most advantageous part of executing a move yourself is the financial savings. Since you will be putting in the time to pack, load, transfer, unload, and unpack your belongings, you will save a lot of money by doing the work yourself. This is much more attainable for people with fewer belongings, lots of friends that are willing to help, and a short distance to move.

Advantages of Hiring Movers:

If you are willing to spend more and hire professional movers, you will gain the aid of experienced and insured movers that will take care of the manual labor involved in a move. In addition, if the movers pack your belongings, you will often be compensated for anything that is damaged during transport. Hiring movers is more expensive, but often significantly reduces the stress inherent in the moving process.

No matter which way you decide to get your belongings from Point A to Point B, you can rest assured that your home will be taken care of with the help of the real estate agents here at Greater Boston Realty.

Spring is the Perfect Time to Sell Your Home

by Alisa Coyle

Spring has finally arrived here in Massachusetts, and that can only mean one thing: better weather is finally coming! As we prepare for it to be warmer and for the snow to melt, we also get ready for the real estate market to pick up. Many buyers have been putting off looking at homes during the winter, but they will soon begin to hunt for their dream home – could yours be ‘the one’ for them?

There are many reasons why Spring is the perfect time to have a home on the market. One is this: it is the time that most people start to look in order to purchase and be settled before fall – the start of a new school year. Families with children often want to move in the summer so that their kids’ school schedules aren’t disrupted like they would be in the middle of the year. This means that if you’re looking to sell a home with multiple bedrooms, you shouldn’t wait to list it!

Our experienced real estate professionals can help you with all of the preparations you will need to make in order to list your home as quickly as possible so that you can take advantage of the Spring selling season, like how to stage your home and what simple repairs you can make to ensure that your home is at its best.

If you want your home to be found by these springtime buyers that will soon begin to search for their new home, call Greater Boston Realty. We are a local Roslindale real estate agency, and we will help you list your home so that it’s seen by potential buyers. With this springtime lighting, it will be easy to make your home ‘pop’ in marketing photos! One quick call to 617-469-4040 is all it takes to start the process, so don’t delay.
