Adjusting to a New Neighborhood - JYB Realty

Moving can be as disruptive an experience for kids as it is for adults, especially if they're too young to understand why. Older kids also find the transition stressful since they'll be giving up their home, familiar places, friends, and school for new ones. Even when moving into a home as lovely and serene as these Atlanta homes for sale, navigating a big change such as moving has its difficulties.

Kids don't adapt as quickly as adults to change. But there are several ways you can help your kids adjust to a new neighborhood.

  1. Talk about what's happening
    The best way to counter moving anxiety is to talk to your kids before the move. Explain where you're moving to and why. How detailed the explanation will depend on how verbal they are. For toddlers and preschoolers, you can use toy trucks and furniture to act out and explain the move.

Stay Safe While Moving - JYB Realty

Moving is stressful under the best of circumstances, and it can cause even more anxiety during the COVID-19 outbreak. Keeping your family and others safe is paramount as you go through all the tasks associated with a move, and this may take a little more work and planning during these unusual times.

Our real estate agents suggest the following five moving tips to help you stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic:

  1. Research your movers and minimize contact
    In a pre-coronavirus world, you'd probably want to be present as much as possible when movers are giving you an estimate or packing and loading your belongings. Now, however, minimizing contact is best for everyone's health. When you're choosing a mover, ask about contactless moving. Many companies are utilizing technology to do everything from seeing customers' belongings and providing quotes to showing customers the loaded truck.

Storage Unit Solutions for Sellers - JY&B Realty

Are you planning on selling your home and moving on to a new one in the near future? If so, you should know that making good use of a storage unit can help. As our real estate agents often advise home sellers, clearing out at least a third of what is now in your home can make it more appealing to buyers, helping you sell faster and possibly at a better price.

So how exactly should you use a storage unit to help you make your best sale on your home? Here are five ways storage units can help you make your home stand out from the crowd of Atlanta homes for sale:

  1. Use it to store personal items
    Personal items, like family pictures, trophies, toys, knick-knacks, and books, are the things that make a house your home. While this is a good thing in everyday life, a homey look can make selling your home more difficult. Getting such items out of the house and into a storage unit helps depersonalize the home, giving potential buyers the opportunity to picture it as their new home.
