Before you move, you will want to clean up or even fix up your house before and even after you sell it. There are some simple things you can do to spruce up your home. Paint the walls to give them a new shiny look. You can put up pictures on the wall and decorate the house with new houseplants to give the house a family feel.
You can start packing your belongings well in advance of your move. You should start taking stock of your belongings about 8 weeks before your move. If you have any belongings that you want to take with you but won’t need or use before you move, go ahead and pack it then. You don’t have to leave all of your packing until the last minute, and you don’t have to pack everything at once. You can do it in stages.
