The Zen of Moving to Your New Home

4 Fundamentals for Stress-Less Moving

Congratulations! You bought your new Taylor Morrison home. Now it’s time to get moving…literally. Assuming you haven’t been living in a tent you’ve got work to do. Lots of it.  It’s tempting to toss everything and start fresh, but you’re probably attached to some of your things. So let’s focus on making the process of moving into a new home as stress-free as possible.  The best way to achieve moving Zen, whether you’re moving down the block or across the country, is to pare the process down to four fundamental needs:

1.  Decide what goes and what doesn’t
