Whether you're moving down the block or across the world, it's never easy. Moving is one of the most stressful life events you'll ever go through. Even if you're going to a better place, a beautiful location, a better job, or just heading somewhere new for a welcome change of pace, getting there is always a chore.
Inevitably, you will be stressed. You will encounter a problem or two throughout the process. Something will probably go wrong. But a lot of things can and will go right, and you should focus on those things when other stuff goes awry.
Not everything is under your control (and you can simply hope that your moving helpers, truck drivers and vendors arrive on time for their appointments). But there are actions you can take and ways to plan ahead so you don't feel too overwhelmed come moving day/week.
In short, when it comes to moving, plan what you can when you can, think ahead and give yourself a break when stress comes along. Before you know it, you'll be settled into your new home.
National parks are a true American treasure, handed down from one generation to the next.
The Pacific Northwest has so many wonderful national parks to visit, or better yet, live near.
Stunning Crater Lake National Park is less than half a day's drive from Portland homes for sale. Or explore 73 miles of Pacific Coast at Olympic National Park, roughly a two-hour drive from Seattle homes for sale.
Our brokers share nine top benefits of living near a national park. Do some of these surprise you?
