How To Save Money When Moving Home

Posted by Jamie on Tuesday 1 November 2016

The range of costs involved when buying a new home seem to be ever expanding. From paying off your mortgage to stamp duty and removal companies, it's not long before all those costs are enough to make you jump out of your skin!

There are however a few tips to keep costs down, leaving you with some extra, hard-earned cash to spend on yourself for once.

 

How To Save Money When Moving Home

1. Use a Moving Check List

There are a hundred things to remember when moving home. Having a detailed list of everything that needs to get done and when will avoid you having to pay for services last minute when costs are probably higher. Get everything in one place and work through your list.

 

2. Do Your Research on Conveyancing

Do you know when to use a conveyancer rather than a solicitor? The legal bits behind moving home is notoriously confusing. Make sure you do your research on which service you need and shop around to make sure you get the best quote for you. At Settled we want to make your home moving journey as seemless and stress-free as possible, so we can take care of the legals in-house.

 

3. Save Money With Online Estate Agents

4. Compare Removal Companies

Depending on how many belongings you have, removal companies can be an expensive experience. Make sure you do a thorough price comparison for removal companies and save yourself having to fork out lots more than you planned. 

 

5. Use Second Hand Packing Boxes

This may sound obvious, but if you haven't already thought about it, this could be a game changer. Heading down to your nearest supermarket and asking for any free quality boxes they have spare, could save you hundreds rather than buying them from local shops.
