Moving when everybody else is celebrating the holidays is no fun.

Here are some suggestions that could help clients who buy in December cope with moving at a time that is incredibly busy:

  • Help your clients get the utilities turned on or switched to their names before they move. Moving in the cold isn't festive.
  • Encourage them to keep the holiday decorations readily available. Having a few items to display will make the transition more pleasant.
  • Taking a walk around the neighborhood and enjoying other people's decorations can make new residents feel more at home.
  • Holidays are all about friends and family. Encourage clients to invite them to see their new home - even if it is still in a state of chaos.
