Your bags are packed but are your kids really that happy to move? Making the change to a different home can be stressful for even the best of us, but for kids who may not understand it, it can be a dramatic experience. At the Rocca Sisters & Associates we work to ensure that when clients move to a new home, the process runs smoothly for every member of the family.

Here’s our top tips to get your kids ready for the big move:

Keep smiling. There’s many reasons families move including work transfers or sudden financial issues. No matter the reason, be sure your attitude about the move remains positive. Kids that may be looking for your reassurance will be more likely to become excited about the move once they see that you have happily accepted the new change.

Get kids involved. Provide them with as much information as you can about the move and let them feel part of the decisions. For instance, we find that kids consider their bedroom the most important aspect of their new home. If there’s an opportunity, have your kids pick their bedroom, a new paint colour or let them decide on some of the décor pieces. This will help them feel prepared for the change that’s about to take place in their lives.

Visit the new area.
If your new home is close by, visit the area with your kids. Point out the parks, recreation centres, schools and other areas where they’ll be able to continue doing the activities they love. If your move is far, show kids photos and videos of the new area online.

These tips will start you off on the right path to getting your kids ready for the family’s new adventure. At the Rocca Sisters & Associates we help families every day with what is often their largest and most important investment: their family home.

We take great pride being trusted with this responsibility and do not take it lightly. That is why Burlington has trusted us and ranked us the #1 Sales Team in Burlington and area for Sales Production and Volume for four consecutive years (2010-2013). We look forward to providing you and your family with an experience that is not just the best, but remarkable!
