Moving is stressful, but moving within the city, from a Back Bay condo to a piece of real estate in The South End for example, can be especially tricky because you have things like city regulations, traffic and a bustling pedestrian population to contend with. In these cases, it's critical to create a thorough plan for moving day - one that considers details like children's nap times, parking and snacks or lunch for your movers. And that's just the beginning! Once you get your belongings through the front door, most people want to focus on unpacking their clothes and arranging furniture, but there are important tasks that, once completed, will help you settle into your new home without worry. Our friends at E.E.

Bonus helpful tip: Another great way to eliminate the stress of moving day is to work with a full-service, committed Boston real estate agent that uses their expertise to facilitate your move in any way possible. The importance of having an agent that is deeply familiar with your neighborhood and any nuances that might affect your move can not be understated. With the current Boston real estate market, buying a home in Back Bay, The South End or any other city neighborhood can be difficult because there are so many other buyers to compete with. Once you find the perfect home, don't let stresses of moving day damper your enthusiasm.
