As you may know, moving is never easy.
Whether it's across the street or cross-country, change can be stressful. And in Denver, where the population has been growing faster than the national rate since 1930, the stress only gets compounded. By 2030, it's projected that 3.6 million people will call the Denver metro area home - making it the most populous city within a 500-mile radius. As the fastest-growing city and county in Colorado, and one of the fastest-growing states in the US, there's no doubt that this place is experiencing massive growth. And with growth comes change.
But even though it can seem overwhelming at times, moving to a new home can also be an exciting adventure. However, as you start to pack up your life, it’s easy to get bogged down in the details. That’s where we come in. We’ve compiled some interesting facts that will help make your move a bit smoother.
First off, did you know that the average household takes 18 hours to pack up? That's a lot of time spent wrapping dishes and packing up clothes. And with deadlines looming, it's important to stay on track.
That brings us to our second fact: packing always comes with a deadline. Whether you're racing to meet a specific moving day or facing a closing date, you need to get everything packed and ready to go in a set amount of time. As we all know, time flies, and it's all too easy to push packing off until the last minute. But with a bit of planning and preparation, you can stay ahead of the game.
Finally, it's worth noting that packing always takes longer than you expect. Even the most organized packers can get bogged down with the countless little things hiding in the corners and crevices of their homes. It can be overwhelming.
We understand how stressful moving can be. That's why we're here to help. By keeping these three facts in mind, you'll be well on your way to a successful move - whether you're downsizing or upsizing your lifestyle.
Unpacking Your Belongings: Three Interesting Facts
Did you know that the average American takes 6 months to unpack their home? It's no wonder that for many of us, the thought of unpacking is nothing short of overwhelming. But why does it take so long? Let's unpack this issue (pun intended) and explore some interesting facts.
Fact #1: No Deadline, No Progress
After the chaos of moving, it's easy to feel relieved and relaxed, thinking you have all the time in the world to unpack. But this type of laid-back approach can quickly turn into a snowball effect. Before you know it, days and weeks have turned into months, and you still have boxes piled high in corners. Without a clear deadline, even one you set for yourself, it's easy for unpacking to become a burden that you keep pushing off.
Fact #2: New Space, New Systems
When you move into a new space, you're faced with a unique challenge: you didn't account for the new space, which means you need new systems. If you downsized, you may have fewer rooms or less closet space; if you upgraded, you may have more space than ever before and have no idea how to organize everything. Without systems in place, unpacking becomes an even bigger challenge that you will likely give up on before everything is perfectly in place.
Fact #3: Chaos Reigns
After the first few boxes are unpacked and items are put away quickly, many homeowners believe unpacking will be a breeze. But then you realize you have too many of one thing, not enough of another, and no longer have space for the pot and pan cabinet you intended. Before long, your energy levels have depleted, and you're living in a sea of unorganized stuff. The result? You keep putting it off for yet another day and, before you know it, time has flown by, and you still haven't gotten everything sorted out.
So what can you do to make unpacking a less daunting process? Set a clear deadline, create new systems, and take things one step at a time. Or ask for help from the professionals.
