3 Tips for Moving from an Apartment to a House

Moving from an apartment into your first home is a major achievement, and you should be proud of making first property purchase! If you’re moving from an apartment to your first home, there may be a few differences that you don’t even think about when you’re making the moving transition.

Here are a few things that we at Dan the Mover, the top movers in the Doylestown, PA area, believe you should keep in mind when you move from an apartment to a home.

  • You’ll need service numbers. Gone are the days when you called your landlord for every one of your home woes. Now, you’ll need maintenance service numbers to keep your home running. From electricians to plumbers, make it a priority to collect a list of reputable services in your area for when you run into an issue. Try searching review sites like Angie’s List or Google Reviews to view testimonies from customers or ask your new neighbors for recommendations!
  • Your home might feel empty. One of the biggest complaints of those transitioning from apartment life to their first home is that they’re overwhelmed by the amount of space that they suddenly have. Because you probably had little to move from your apartment, your new home will likely feel a bit empty for the first few weeks of living in it. However, this is an excellent time to get in touch with your inner interior designer. Shopping at local furniture stores and secondhand shops is a great and cost-effective way to brighten up your home and fill your new space.
  • Making a cleaning schedule will save you stress. One of the downsides of moving into a bigger space? More cleaning duties! Instead of leaving all your cleaning until the last minute (which will leave you overwhelmed), make a weekly schedule of tasks like mowing the grass, checking your smoke alarms, vacuuming, cleaning the garage and completing all of your other household tasks. This will save you time and stress when it comes to cleaning!
