Technology improves many aspects of our lives - from keeping us connected with friends worldwide to better balancing and budgeting finances. Technology makes it easier to manage your next household move and prepare for your new home and neighborhood. Utilizing technology for your next move is easy and fun and can take pre-move guesswork out of the moving equation.

Online Research

Use the internet to research neighborhoods, schools, amenities, and real estate listings. Websites and apps like Zillow, Realtor.com, and Trulia provide comprehensive information about available properties. 


Before you even step foot into your new home and neighborhood, you’ll have the chance to learn about the area. Several websites and companies give a full breakdown of various neighborhoods nationwide. Research the schools, safety, walkability, and community from your computer with powerful online tools like CrimeReports, AreaVibes, Nextdoor, and Family Watchdog.


Enhanced Photography

Real estate agencies are turning to enhanced photography tools to give an accurate picture of the houses they put on the market. As a buyer, you may have access to great photography from drones or 3D scans of the rooms. It’s possible to obtain a virtual walkthrough of your new home before you move, letting you know where everything will go once you get into your new house.

Home Design Programs

Imagine being able to plan your new home’s furniture and decor before even moving to your new house. Robust software programs like Homestyler and Planner5D allow you to scan a room or put in the exact dimensions of your room to recreate a digital rendering. From there, you’ll be able to create a virtual creation of your new home. Plus, this software allows you to add structural elements, like new windows or doors, so you can get an idea of how your rooms will look with some renovations.

Virtual Moving Survey

Use moving companies’ virtual moving survey tools when getting quotes for your relocation. A virtual moving survey involves a video call with your potential moving company, during which you walk through your home or office, showing the items you want to move. The company then estimates the cost based on what they see, and you confirm the details electronically. It's convenient and eliminates the need for an in-person visit.

Digitize Your Moving Checklist

Break away from traditional pen and paper and digitize your moving checklist. Not only can you keep your moving list in one place, but you’ll also allow friends and family access to your list. You can save the list to the Cloud, giving you easy access anywhere worldwide. Plus, digitizing your checklist makes it easy to add and remove items as you think of things to do.

Smart Home Devices

Consider installing smart home devices like smart thermostats, security cameras, and smart locks in your new place. These devices can enhance security, save energy, and make managing your new home more convenient.

Community Apps

Once you've settled into your new home, explore community apps like Nextdoor or Meetup to connect with neighbors and discover local events and activities. These apps can help you build relationships and feel more at home in your new neighborhood.
