Knock, knock.

Who’s there?

It’s summer, and it’s coming up on your doorstep quicker than you can say “sweet Florida sunshine.”

Whether or not you planned it this way, buying a new house and moving during the summer can be a totally different beast than moving during another time of year.

Summer is the busy season for movers and real estate in Lake Mary, largely because the weather is nice, the kids are out of school, and the conditions are ideal.

But if moving during the summer is unavoidable (or just preferred), here are a few tips to make moving into your new home as simple as possible.

Plan Ahead

If you’re moving to a new home in Lake Mary, or anywhere in the Central Florida area, chances are you’re going to need some help.

This is particularly true if you have a whole house full of stuff that needs to make the move along with you and your family.

If you’re moving in the summer, you’re going to want to get ahead of the game with some prior proper planning. Find a moving company which has availability around your expected moving date and book them as soon as you can. That way, you can beat the summer rush and make sure you have the resources you need to move on time.

Pack Late, Move Early

Florida summers can be particularly hot and muggy. If you’re going to be moving during the next few months, you’re going to want to have a plan in place in order to beat the heat.

One good way to do just that is to pack in the evenings — whether it’s after school, after work, or just after the sun goes down.

Once moving day rolls around, you’re going to want to get the worm by being the early bird. Try to get loaded and moved before the sun is high in the sky.

Also remember to have plenty of water at the ready and stay hydrated as you load and unload all of your belongings.

Know Where You’re Going

The last thing you want to do is spend precious time driving around aimlessly in search of your destination.

Hopefully, you found the Lake Mary real estate of your dreams with the help of Gitta Sells & Associates and you know exactly where it is you’re going.

But just in case, have a map or a guide handy in order to make sure you can get to and from your new home easily and without haste.
