1. Plan your timing
If you’re looking into moving houses, doing it while your kids are still in school would be an extra layer to peel off. It’ll be more challenging to juggle the ongoing school calendar and a house move. To add to that, if you’re moving to a new school in the middle of a school year, it’ll be tougher for your kid to integrate comfortably. That’s why families often move during their kids’ summer break. It’s perfect as it’s when the family has more time to tackle an undertaking like this. In short, planning and giving yourself the right amount of window to do this goes a long way.
Don’t start listing and hunting for a new place just when summer’s about to start. Instead, spread yourself out throughout the year. Expect or make it a goal for your move to be around your kid’s summer break. It’ll be less stressful not just for you, but for your kid, too. You’ll both need ample time to prepare, so don’t haste the process.
