Moving house can be an incredibly stressful time. Moving house, however, isn’t just stressful, it is also time consuming. For this reason, many people now think that it is too late to move house and use house hunting as their new year’s resolution. Despite this, however, there’s still plenty of time to move this year and, with 10 weeks until Christmas, you still have plenty of time. Here’s a quick guide on how you can make sure you’re all moved in and settled by Christmas:
Selling your Own Home
Often, selling your own home is the lengthiest part of the process. Readying your home for the market, choosing an estate agent and getting it on the market all take time. If you’re looking to sell in a hurry and be moved in for Christmas, however, why not try and skip this process and opt for a quick sell with a company like Quick Move Now?

Starting the Search for Another
Starting the search for a new home has never been easier. Nowadays, everything can be done on the internet and you can have a potential shortlist drawn up in hours without even leaving your own home. From here, you can even start viewing by the end of this week. Moving home can be quicker than you think.
Making Sure It’s Furnished
Its all well and good moving into a new house, but it is your furnishings that make it a home. If you require large items such as sofas then you’ll need to order them sooner rather than later and they can take anywhere between 5-10 weeks to make and deliver. Once you’ve ordered these then you can focus on the smaller details; just make sure you have a list of what needs to be done.
If you’re looking at houses, make sure that the agents give you room measurements. As soon as this is sorted, you can start buying your furniture.
To conclude, you still have plenty of time to make sure that you’re all fully moved in by Christmas. With 10 weeks left until the big day, you still have time to both buy and furnish your new home. Time may be a little tight but, if you follow the above hints and tips, you’ll be settled into your new home in no time.
