When preparing children for a move, it’s important to find ways to get them excited about the new house, school and even the city they’ll be in after a few months. But don’t overlook the more immediate changes to their lives that begin as soon as you put your home on the market. The DiMora Team are real estate experts in the Novi and Northville neighborhoods and we have seen what they might be thinking as you begin the home-selling process, and strategies to alleviate your child’s concerns. Thoughts such as: Who is this stranger (listing agent) who is invading our lives? Try to form a positive relationship between your kids and your agent. Also, staging a home often means prepacking some of a child’s favorite things. Involve kids in packing as much as possible. This gives them an idea of where their toys and clothes have gone rather than fearing they’ve disappeared forever. The personal favorites – a blanket, stuffed animal or even family photos – should be the last to go. It’s easy to store them under the bed during a showing. You can even have your child put them away so he or she will know exactly where they will be when you return from an outing. Check out below to see what sold in Island Lakes Arbors in July 2016:
