Downsizing Tip #2: Avoid making the closing date and the moving date the same
Closing and moving on the same day can create a lot of unnecessary stress and complication as you sort out what to take, what to sell and what to throw away while coming up against a hard deadline.
Often sellers think they need to live in their home right until closing day. Remaining in your home throughout the process can create extra stress, management, and complications. Many downsizing seniors have the flexibility to plan their move in advance of the closing. This offers a number of advantages.
Solution: Plan to move a few weeks before the sale of your house closes. This way you can move out the items you want to keep, but have some flexibility in case you forgot something or something doesn’t fit. With what your keeping out of the house, what’s left can more easily be sold, maximizing your return without intrusion or concern for the security of what you are keeping.
