The moving process: Do you have a checklist?

Whether you’re moving for the first time or finding a new home after foreclosure, checklists can make the moving process easier.

Moving can be a daunting process for some. There are many details that need to be executed during the moving process. When considering your move, it is important to understand everything that will affect you such as location, size, utilities, school, etc. Completing a housing needs checklist can help you determine what you need in your new home or apartment.

The housing needs checklist helps you figure out if you want an apartment or house, location, size and style. While this particular checklist was created for those who are looking for housing after foreclosure, it is useful for anyone who is moving and unfamiliar with the moving process. After determining your new location, completing the moving checklist will help you remember the small details. The moving checklist includes packing tips, transitioning with family, moving from a house, and self-moving vs. professional movers.

Whether you’re moving for the first time or finding a new home after foreclosure, checklists can make the moving process easier. Michigan State University Extension has released a new toolkit for homeowners who are experiencing or have previously experienced foreclosure. This toolkit will equip these individuals and families with tools to help them recover their financial stability, in the case that a recovery of their home is not possible. The toolkit is available to download free at MIMoneyHealth.org.

Michigan State University Extension offers financial literacy and homeownership workshops throughout the year to help you become financially healthy.
