Moving to a new house is a stressful event. Regardless of how experienced you are, it’s a long, daunting and very expensive process. Of course, there will never be a move that is 100% stress free, however WitLet, estate agents Witham, have come together to create a list of mistakes that are frequently made and how to avoid them.

Mistake 1: Misjudging the time scale

Unfortunately, moving isn’t as easy as everyone wishes. The decision is life changing and needs extensive research. In order to avoid this mistake, try analysing your current situation.

Are you financially stable enough to move? Are you ready for the commitment and are you in a stable career? If the answer is no to any of the above questions or you are struggling to answer them, then it probably isn’t the best time to think about leaving the nest.

Mistake 2: You accept the first estimate

It’s an easy trap to fall into. Once you’ve got your head set on moving, you are willing to accept the very first estimate that is proposed to you. However, as tempting as it may be, you should try to hold off. Try and get at least three estimates as each agent will value your property slightly differently.

Mistake 3: You forget to transfer utilities and other important bills

It’s vital that you remember to notify places such as the bank and other important bills. To avoid this from becoming a problem, try setting an alarm on your phone a couple of days before you move to remind you to carry out such task.
