Moving into a new home is a significant milestone in anyone’s life, and with it comes a whirlwind of tasks. Homeowners often have their hands full, checking off the obvious items on their to-do list, from packing boxes to hiring movers. But in the rush of it all, there are several overlooked factors when homeowners are planning a moving project. Some of these factors might seem minor but can lead to major headaches if not addressed.
