Apps That Make Your Moving Easier

by Robin Anderson Real Estate 07/28/2019

Everyone dreads moving day (if you don't, you are a rare breed). Remember how tired you got just thinking about it - The hassles of house hunting, the sorting, the packing, the heavy lifting, the question of which is worse, the "moving out" or the "moving in"? 

Thankfully, there are now numerous apps that help when it comes to moving in or out, whether locally or across the country. It is essential for you to know which apps are your best friends when you are relocating. In most cases, they will save you plenty of time and money.

Zillow

Zillow comes up as number 1 in most moving apps rating lists and for a good reason too. This trade center of real estate has been described as the most credible site for house hunting. If you are indecisive, this is the perfect place to start. A great feature is that it comes with pictures of the external and internal layout along with video walk-throughs so you can see what you are getting without being there physically. It also offers information on the neighborhood. 

Sortly

It is annoying when you have to rummage through neatly packed boxes in search of just one little thing or when your movers unload the kitchen box in the bedroom. Apart from packing neat boxes, it is even better to monitor what is in what box and where they need to be unloaded. The cool thing about Sortly is its visual inventory list.

Take pictures of items as you pack, adding them to the inventory, then print out QR codes for each box. When you need to unpack in your new place, just scan the codes, and you get a full view of the contents of each box — no more rummaging. 

Moved

This app is where the muscle comes in. Moved is better compared to Dolly because dolly is said to be more expensive and is best used when you need a little help with a small move. Moved asks "where?" and "when?" and then links you up with someone whom you can collaborate with to plan the process and book moving companies.

Magicplan

After the stressful day (which could have been worse without these apps), you only want everything in its right place. No app is going to unpack your clothes and arrange them in your wardrobe, but you do get something close with this app. Magicplan helps you create a plan for how you want to organize your new place. It's like the blueprints of your future decor. It can measure distances to create a precise floor plan virtually so that you know where everything goes. 

Moving doesn't have to be a scary venture. Once you have put together your plan, you can pack your boxes based on that and use sticky notes to direct the movers where to set the boxes. Contact a reliable moving company also to make sure your move is as smooth as possible.

Testimonials

"My fiancé and I couldn't have imagined using anyone but Robin as our real estate agent! She was so enthusiastic to find the perfect home for us and took the time to listen to all the things we wanted in our first home together. She's knowledgeable, kind, and works incredibly hard. We texted her late at night more than a few times, and she didn't hesitate to offer advice or encouragement or look at new options for us. Would recommend 10 out of 10!! "

" Robin is the consummate professional! She sold our previous home and helped us through the processes of purchasing and construction of our new home. She is knowledgeable, responsive and takes care of her clients. We would happily ask Robin to represent us again in the future and highly recommend her as an excellent real estate professional."
