‘I’m not ready to move yet’

Personal Moving Consultant As the personal moving consultant at one of Erickson Living s 16 communities, I have heard the phrase I m not ready to move yet many times. After countless home visits with clients that started with this phrase, I understand what not ready yet means to most people and how personal moving consultants can resolve just about every moving issue. I want to move, but I have so much stuff in my house I don t know were to begin. I have a team of experts that knows just how to handle this dilemma. They re experts at right-sizing and will help you sort through all your accumulated belongings and choose what you want to bring with you to your new home. You can also use our auction house to sell some of your things or have a tag sale after you move. The feedback we get from clients afterward is that it was a lot easier than they thought it would be. I want to move, but this is a bad time to sell a house. Houses are still selling, and mortgages are at their lowest rate in years and home buyers know it. We work with real estate agents from our own list of preferred and trusted real estate professionals. I can tell you personally that my team which includes the seller, the real estate agent, and me has sold all of the houses we listed, on average, in 69 days using a three-step process: 1. Choose the right agent. 2. Make sure your house is market-ready. 3. Price it right. I m not ready to move from my home and start over in a new place. Working with a personal moving consultant removes a lot of the worry from this process. Our job is to help you transition from your current house to your new home at an Erickson Living community, and that includes everything from selling your house and setting up your new floor plan to choosing the right moving professionals who will unpack everything in your new home. I personally have helped over 500 people through this process; there is not a problem I can t fix or a situation I can t resolve. And as often as I hear the phrase I m not ready yet, I also hear after the move I m so happy to be in my new home; I wish I had done it sooner.
