Moving or relocating to Kansas City? The secret to a successful move!
Let’s be honest, moving is stressful. According to a quick internet search, moving tops the list of the most stressful life events, ranking even higher than divorce or changing jobs. Although purchasing a new home is an exciting endeavor, it can also feel overwhelming.
Why to call an interior designer first
It might feel premature to contact an interior designer before you commit to a realtor. However, we believe it’s a decision that will serve you well in the long run. That’s because an interior designer is invested in the long-term vision of the home. While a realtor is able to help you find a home that checks off all your boxes, a designer will go in depth to peel back the layers of who you are and how your family lives. They can help you prioritize your needs and desires for your next home.
- What do love about your current home? What isn’t working?
- How do you like to entertain? For how many people?
- How do you spend your free time?
- What is your preferred style?
- What are your must haves?
You may find a home that you love, but there are parts of the home’s layout or style that don’t work for you. In that case an interior designer can help assess whether a remodel may be the solution. A few high-end upgrades could increase resale value and turn a ho-hum house into a stunner. A designer’s eye can help you see past the dated façade of a property and envision its “big picture” potential.
