6 Tips to Keep You Zen When Managing a Move and a New Business

Is it time for a bigger home? If you’ve been struggling to find enough space for your life and your new business, the answer to this question may be a huge “yes” ! Having a little extra room can go a long way in helping a new startup thrive and grow.

But if you need to move to a new home right now, you’re going to need a few pointers to keep yourself from feeling overwhelmed. After all, these are both two challenging transitions on their own. Luckily Jon Gilman is coming to your rescue with this list of practical and helpful tips.

Research Local Home Prices

Whether you’re buying a home or starting a business, finances are important. To keep your home budget in check, be sure to look into local home prices. Then you can narrow down your search to neighborhoods that are within your price range. At the same time, you’ll also want to complete other tasks on your financial to-do list, to make buying your new home less stressful.

Hire an Experienced Realtor

Working with a realtor who has the right amount of experience and knowledge in the local housing market can also make a difference. Especially when you are juggling the ins and outs of establishing a new business at the same time. Your agent can take the guesswork out of finding local properties, negotiating contract details, and closing on a new home.

File Business Paperwork Online

Now you can focus on steps to set up your new business. One is bound to be setting up the right entity, which can include an LLC. You’re going to be far too busy to file this paperwork with an attorney. Thankfully you can save yourself time and money with a formation service or by filing online. Check the rules in your specific state, especially if you are moving to a new one.

Look for Professional Moving Help

While you’re online creating your new LLC, also think about looking for moving companies. Otherwise you could end up spending hours of your precious time packing boxes and loading a moving truck. That’s time you could be putting to use for your new business. If you choose a

DIY move, you may also be limited in what you can bring with you.

Consider a Co-working Arrangement

If you’re working from home to get your business up and running, all of the packing and prep work can be distracting. The same goes for when you get to your new home. Before you move, look for local co-working spots where you may be able to work distraction-free. You can find these businesses in most major cities and there are perks to using one even after your move.

Use Smartphone Apps to Stay Organized

Apps can also be a lifesaver when you’re managing a move or a new business. Moving apps provide priceless tools to help you stay on track of what can be a stressful process, like checklists, calendars, and reminders. Need more help with your business? There are also several smartphone apps that can help keep entrepreneurs productive and organized.

Buying a new home. Moving. Starting a new business. These are all major life transitions, and a lot to take care of all at once. You need all of the tips and help you can get right now. Keep this guide handy to start and then connect with a realtor you can trust and depend on ASAP. We wish you the best of luck with this journey! It may be stressful, but it will all be worth it!

How Real Estate Has Been Affected by Covid-19

Covid has benefitted homeowner value and potential sellers! This is not a typo.

How Covid has affected sellers:

  • The not so serious sellers have taken their listings off the market or have decided to wait for more certain times to come before thinking about selling again.
  • This means supply, or inventory, is at all time lows while demand remains strong.

How Covid has affected buyers:

  • The Fed, in order to keep the economy stimulated, have continued to lower interest rates to historic lows.
  • There is an added pent up homeownership desire from families living in condos wanting to have more space and land.
  • Low taxes in Florida have only increased migration from high tax states (i.e., New York, New Jersey, California)
  • High unemployment statistics do not seem to have affected the majority base of the buyer market.

Conclusion:

This has made for perfect chemistry to develop into what is a strong sellers market.

Our listing throughout Miami-Dade have been selling on average of 20 days or less.

We continue to practice and be responsible towards social distancing measures in order to make the home selling and buying process as safe and comfortable as possible.
