Tips for Moving into a Fixer Upper


There are several families who move into fixer upper homes. These are homes that often need a little tender, loving care in order to get back to the home that it once was. For many people, this is going to mean moving into the home that they are fixing up, rather than fixing up this home and living elsewhere. It can be difficult to live in a home that you are living in, however, for many people it is unavoidable. If this is the case, we have some tips that can help you decide just how to move into a fixer upper.

Perform Renovations in Order

If you are staying in a home while renovating, be sure that you are performing the renovations in order that makes sense. You do not want to end up doing more work and taking more time when you are doing renovations. For example, if the home needs to be re-wired, do this before you repaint the walls. Likewise, if you need to replace the floors, do this in a time in which the floors are less likely to become damaged.

Consider Consolidating your Belongings

One thing you don’t want to do is to have us move you into your new home, then find yourself constantly moving items around your home to make room for renovations to happen. What we recommend is that you put some items in a storage unit if possible. Those items that you are not going to use can always be stored for later. We can even help with delivering and storing these things into the storage unit for you. You may find it easier to perform renovations when not having to move room after room while working on these renovations.

Practice Patience

When you decide to live in a home that you are renovating, you are going to find that it will require patience. There are going to be times in which you wonder why you even moved to this home. However, rest assure that once you have the home of your dreams, the move will pay off!
