Moving to a new city with your family is a big decision. If you’ve been considering Fort Lauderdale, Florida as your next home, this blog post will tell you what it’s really like and whether or not it might be the right place for you. I’ll also give some tips on how to make the transition smoother for everyone involved.
One of my favorite things about living in Fort Lauderdale is that there are so many amazing parks! There’s one just outside our condo complex and we can walk there in less than five minutes – which makes getting out into nature easy and convenient. The other thing I love is that Fort Lauderdale has an incredible amount of culture. There are museums, theaters, art galleries…and of course the beautiful beaches!
Finding an home in Fort Lauderdale
When moving to Fort Lauderdale you have a great variety of homes, condos and apartments to choose from. While there are a number of great homes to choose from, it is a very competitive market. Available properties don’t last long so you need to be quick. I’ve found that it’s a good idea to get on the mailing list for all of the realtors in the area. That way you know when new properties come up and you’ll be able to see them before they hit the market.
When we were looking at homes, one thing I really liked was finding a real estate agent who was willing to show us homes that were listed but still pending. I think that was the best way for us to find a home because it gave us an edge over other shoppers who may jump on the opportunity when it becomes available.
Choosing movers in Fort Lauderdale
Once you have a move-in date established it’s time to start thinking about how you will get all of your furniture and belongings to the new home. While movers do add an additional cost, they make the moving process so much less stressful. If you’re considering hiring professional movers in Fort Lauderdale, I recommend checking out the company we used to make our move. They were so accommodating and made what could have been a very stressful day into an easy one.
Movers in Fort Lauderdale can offer you a number of services at the same time. They will help load, unload and even pack your belongings to ensure they are well cared for during every step of the journey. The movers we used were so professional that I didn’t have any worries about their work ethic or abilities when it came to safely moving my furniture to our new home.
If you’re looking for a new place to live, make sure you work with a real estate agent who understands the Fort Lauderdale market. A well connected real estate agent will be able to find the perfect home in your price range and help ease any concerns or questions. When it comes time to move, movers can lighten your load considerably by taking care of everything from packing up all of your belongings and moving them into storage until needed again, unpacking at the other end, delivering all furniture items safely inside the house and helping set things up just as they were before. While this does add an extra expense upfront it saves so many hours of laborious stressing out
