Tips for Moving to a Luxury Home in Florida

by Marc Brandt 08/28/2019

For many people, buying a luxury home in Florida is a dream come true. However, the process of getting your belongings from your current location to your luxury house in the Sunshine State may prove to be a nightmare if you don't plan ahead.

Lucky for you, we're here to help streamline the process of relocating to Florida.

Now, let's take a look at three moving tips that every Sunshine State luxury homebuyer needs to know.

1. Sell or Donate Winter Items

Let's face it – you likely won't need a heavy winter jacket, snow shovel or other winter items in Florida. If you get rid of these items now, you won't have to worry about transporting them to your Sunshine State luxury house.

In many instances, there is plenty of demand for winter apparel and accessories, and you may be able to sell these items before moving day arrives. If you have sufficient time prior to your move, you may want to host a yard sale. Or, you can always list your winter items online.

Don't forget about the benefits of donating winter items to local charities, either. If you reach out to local charities in your area today, you may be able to find a charity that can pick up your winter belongings.

2. Get Ready for the Florida Weather

Although you won't need winter apparel in Florida, you probably will need a swimsuit, sunblock and other warm-weather items. If you purchase these items before your move, you'll be fully prepared to settle into your luxury home as soon as you arrive.

Furthermore, you may want to pick up air conditioners and fans before you complete your move. With these cooling systems at your disposal, you can beat the heat starting on day one at your Sunshine State luxury house.

3. Prep Your Paperwork

Update your mailing address with the United States Postal Service (USPS) – you'll be glad you did. If you visit a local post office or the USPS website, you can update your mailing address and begin receiving mail to your Florida luxury home immediately.

Moreover, if you are bringing your car to Florida, you'll need to register your vehicle in the Sunshine State within your first 10 days of arrival. You also should keep in mind that you'll need to get your Florida driver's license in your first 30 days in the state. As such, it pays to learn about the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles' policies so you can register your vehicle and get your official Florida driver's license without delay.

If you need extra help as you plan to relocate to a Florida luxury home, you may want to consult with a real estate agent. In addition to helping luxury homebuyers shop for residences, this housing market professional can offer expert insights to ensure you can complete a seamless move to the Sunshine State.

Enjoy a fast, easy move to a Florida luxury home – use the aforementioned tips, and you can reap the benefits of a stress-free relocation to the Sunshine State.
