There's a lot to think about when picking up your life and heading to a new place. It can be a thrilling time but some things might not go as planned. No matter what your reason is for moving, beware of these common moving mistakes. Hopefully this will get you ready for the tough times of your move.

Selling Your Home To Early
Don’t let your eagerness win when it comes to selling your home. A quick sale can result in an undervalued offer and a tricky situation for yourself if you need to move out before you have a place to move in to. Talk to a real estate agent about the value of your home and get their advice on when and what they think it can sell for. Also, if you don’t have a place to move into, make sure you give yourself time in your contract to move out and find a new place to live. Being in-between homes means extra moving, money and finding storage space.

Not Having Realistic Expectation About Moving Times
If you’re hiring a moving company to help with your move it’s important to talk to them about the expected timing of your move. If you think you can have your stuff across the country in three days make sure they think the same. You don’t want to be waiting in your empty house, disappointed that things aren't happening at the speed you want. It’s better to be upfront and honest with yourself about how long each moving task can take.

Trying to Replicate Your Old Home
It’s understandable that people get attached to their homes. They spend time and money on making it a comfortable space to come home to everyday. They’ve also created life long memories in their home over the years. But just because you loved how your old home was set up doesn't mean you should try to copy that style for your new home. The rooms will be different sizes; the whole house will have its own unique layout. Don’t try to force a room to look like a past room, be open to your new space and the new design you can bring to it.
