In 2018, asking prices for homes in Romania went up by 1.4 percent, according to Romania Insider, and prices continue to rise in 2019. Despite rising prices, apartments and houses in Romania are still a real bargain. When it comes to real estate, few European nations feature apartments and homes for sale which cost less than those in Romania. If you’re gotten onto the property ladder in Romania, your new home will likely be a great investment. Of course, your new home will also give you a sense of security and pride. To enjoy a stress-free move-in day, you should have a game plan. These tips will help you to plan effectively.
Start deciding on décor
A new home means a fresh start and a chance to put more of your personality and style sensibility into décor. With a home that you own, you’ll be able to paint, wallpaper and decorate to your heart’s content, without worrying about landlords. Once you know your move-in day, think about décor. Will you want to bring everything that you need into the new home, or pare things down, to get rid of items, such as furnishings, that don’t suit your design vision for your new home? If you do want to pare things down, donate or sell items. Then, find new ones that are more appropriate.
You may also want to gather supplies for any DIY projects that you plan to tackle as soon as you move in. For example, you might want to paint a few rooms right away. Look at paint shades, make decisions and then shop around for the best deals on high-quality paints and related supplies, such as rollers and brushes. Getting supplies gathered for any type of DIY project will be a smart way to ensure that you’re able to get your home looking great shortly after you move in. If you don’t want to do the hard work yourself, research contractors before your move. Reach out to contractors to get quotes for their services.
Arrange for utility services ahead of time
The good news is that Romanian utilities usually don’t cost too much. Municipal governments typically handle sewage treatment and water supply. Heat for preparing meals is offered by municipal neighborhood stations. Contact your municipality to arrange for utilities, long before your move-in day rolls around. Provision Power & Gas asserts that setting up a new account for utilities and ensuring that the home’s former owner (if there was one) has cancelled his or her utility contract is important. This is the sort of task that you should do six to eight weeks before you move in. Internet access is important, too, so vet providers and choose one weeks before move-in day. Make sure that the internet will be up and running when you need it.
Ask for help with moving chores
It’s important to get reliable help with moving, whether it’s close friends, family or a moving company. You have furnishings and belongings that you may need help getting from Point A to Point B. Make sure that there are people around to help you on the big day. A moving company should be contacted six to eight weeks before the move. Book moving services very early to avoid disappointment. If you’re depending on friends and/or family, make sure that they won’t let you down. Remind them about your moving day repeatedly so they don’t forget.
Moving into a new home doesn’t have to be stressful. It can be a joyous event that goes off without a hitch. When you plan out DIY projects beforehand, get utilities sorted and request assistance with moving tasks, you’ll have your bases covered. The more you do to prepare for moving day, the better.
