How to Move Safely During the Pandemic

With travel restrictions and social distancing in place, many people are postponing their moving plans. Governments are assisting by suspending foreclosures and eviction processes during this time.

  1. Is COVID-19 spreading in the area where you’re going?
  2. Will you or your travel companion(s) be in close contact with others during your trip?
  3. Are you or your travel companion(s) more likely to get severe illness if you get COVID-19?

Tips for Virtual Home Shopping During COVID-19

Uncategorized Apr 13, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed so much of the way we live right now, home shopping included. With Stay at Home mandates in place in much of the country, we certainly can’t be going in and out of strangers’ homes touching doorknobs, light switches, and appliances.

If you are needing to move soon, however, don’t despair! We can help you find a home and stay safely within the health guidelines. Here are some tips for home shopping during the pandemic.

10 Spring Cleaning Tips from the Pro’s

Uncategorized Mar 30, 2020

Spring is in the air and so is pollen and dust. While we are all practicing responsible social distancing and staying home, why not take the time to do a deep cleaning?

Here are some ideas and tips from professional cleaners and organizers to help you get the job done.

  1. Designate an area to collect items to be donated. A closet, a corner of the garage, or a spare room. This way you can collect everything in one place until you are able to take it to a donation center.

Uncategorized Feb 10, 2020

Thinking of selling your home this year? Maybe you are ready to upsize or downsize, move to a new neighborhood, or take advantage of a sellers’ market. In any case, there are some smart moves you can make before you list to ease the process of selling your home.
