Consequently, you might find yourself becoming overwhelmed and frustrated during the process of sorting, packing, looking for a new home, selling yours ,etc. Thankfully, the apps listed below will make the whole undertaking of moving a bit easier to handle:
- Real Estate Apps: Of course, when it comes time to move, one of the first steps you need to take is securing a new house. After all, not having a place to go once you have sold your current house can create quite a problem. While there are tons of real estate apps out there, one of the best is Zillow. This app, created and monitored by a Seattle-based company assists you in every phase of the home buying experience. You can literally look through hundreds or thousands of home or apartment listings from all over the country. Zillow goes above and beyond showing you options for your next abode, though, it also gives you the latest info on the going mortgage rates. The real time feature on the app is especially helpful as it allows you to see what a home’s neighborhood looks like, providing you with more than just some still shots of the home without outside references.
- Reducing Clutter Resources: One of the best ways to make your move easier is to reduce the amount of items you need to sort, pack and move. Therefore, a move is a great time to reduce your clutter. There are many apps and/or resources that can help with that. However, perhaps, the best are Facebook Marketplace and letgo. Facebook Marketplace is a feature on your Facebook page that allows users to place items for sale and reach many potential buyers, instantly.

You can also use it to buy needed items for your next place at a steep discount when compared to purchasing new items.

Now, times that by every room that you have in your home. You can quickly see how overwhelming simply the organizing element of a move can become. Thankfully, there are some apps that make this process a little easier. Wunderlist is one such resource.
