Episode 02: Organizing for a Move - Part 1

Have you ever felt overwhelmed when getting ready to move?

I know I have. I have moved 11 times and know first-hand how overwhelming moving can be.

This episode is part one of a two part Organizing for a Move series. In this episode we speak with realtor Sonya Crites of the Ottawa Property Girls and Remax Absolute Realty about getting organized when selling and buying a home.

Some of the questions I ask Sonya include:

– What are the first steps when buying a home?
– What are common mistakes that people make when buying a home?
– When is it is a good time to put your home up for sale?
– Moving is stressful, can you give us some tips on how to get organized for a move, so it is less stressful?
– What are common mistakes people make when selling their homes?
– Recently houses in Ottawa ON were selling really fast. There seemed to be a shortage of houses for sale. Do you find that it is still the case now?
– Why were/are there less homes for sale?
– For those who are considering buying or selling a home, when is the best time to contact a realtor?
