Are you looking into moving into a Howard County home anytime soon? You’ve made a great choice or consideration. Maryland is a beautiful, diverse state, home to gorgeous scenery, mountains, beaches, and plenty of historical offerings. Owning a Maryland home is a great way to enrich the lives of yourself and your family. But of course, to call a Maryland home truly “home,” you’ll have to prepare to move into your brand new luxury home. Here’s a moving timeline on what you’ll need to do to prepare for your exciting life in your new Maryland home.
Eight Weeks Ahead
At this point, you have likely confirmed that you will be moving to Maryland. Congratulations! You’ve already gotten past the challenging first steps of choosing a Howard County neighborhood, finding that perfect homebuilder, and getting your finances in order. Now, this step will likely depend on which stage of life you are in. If you are just beginning your adult life, you likely don’t have too many pre-existing assets like furniture heirlooms and other high-value things. You should begin to set aside a budget on what you will need to purchase for the move-in, such as beds, towels, and couches. If you are already well established in life, you’ll need to take this time to determine whether you’ll need professional movers or if there is anything you can let go of before moving to your new Maryland home.
Four Weeks Ahead
This is the time to start narrowing down to the exact move-in date. Make sure to research local moving, storage units, and junk hauling companies located close to the address of your Maryland home. This will make sure that you are fully prepared for the actual move-in date and have all processes in order when you actually arrive in Maryland in the near future. This is also a good time to transfer connections from your old area to the new one, such as doctors, address changes with the post office, pharmacies, and job-related relay points.
Just Before The Big Move
This is probably the most stressful time before moving, but that’s okay. You can handle it. It’s time to start packing everything that you want to take with you into moving boxes and preparing for the transportation to arrive. You should also make sure to put aside a few necessities for the road (or air) that you might need for the travel time, such as basic toiletries and first-aid kits. Just think of your wonderful new life in your Maryland home– it will be there sooner than you’d think.
