Once you’ve moved into your new home, it can feel like you’ll never get rid of moving boxes and all the headaches that go along with moving house. But as the dust settles while you accomplish each task and unpack each box, you’ll start feeling more and more like you’re settling in at home.

Moving house is often fraught with stress and it’s easy to feel overwhelmed in the weeks before, as well as on the day you actually move.

If you can manage it, take a few days off from work before and after you move house. Having time to organise last minute things during business hours before you move is invaluable, as is having time off to start unpacking and organise your home without having to worry about fitting it in around work. Allowing yourself those extra days on either side of the move will keep you feeling on top of things and level-headed amongst the chaos.

You’re building a new house and you’re dreaming about all the new furniture you want to buy, what colour you’ll paint the walls, and how you’ll landscape the garden, right?

But it doesn’t have to be a chaotic, stressful event. If you have a plan and give yourself plenty of time to arrange things, moving home can go smoothly and you can settle in your new home without a flurry of stress and anxiety. The first step?

Choosing to build a new home can be incredibly beneficial to families, first home buyers and investors.

Reasons for such a decision can include the home buyer growing out of their current home, choosing to run a business from home, the need for more space or a different location, a lifestyle change and the list goes on.

However, research suggests that record numbers of people are choosing to improve their homes with extensions and additions as opposed to moving altogether. Reasons for this change in trend vary depending on location and of course the continual adjustment of interest rates.
