Moving in 2014? Book Your Mover Soon!

2014 is quickly becoming a busier year than years in the past.  Even local moving will be affected this year.  As of 3/19, many of the 31 movers in the Moving Link collaboration had no room for new clients for the last 10 days of March.  It is about available capacity – or something you can relate to – Inventory!  I know you don't have houses to sell and it must be frustrating!  Imagine how your clients, who are stressed to the max, will feel when they wait to the last minute to look for a mover only to get shut out, stuck with an inferior mover, or pay an un-necessary premium.

In 1997, Moving Link was created to satisfy an unmet need in the moving industry from the customer's perspective.

People are always asking, How do I find a good Mover? Do I really need one? Can I trust what the representative tells me? How many estimates should I get? How do I compare the estimates? What kind of storage is right for my needs? What can I do to reduce the cost? What happens when I encounter a problem with the moving company?

Moving Link’s client volume, competitive estimating process, and no-cost, unbiased consulting provide leverage to secure the mover’s best crews, competitive pricing, and highest level of service to guarantee your moving success. Moving Link works for you– NOT the mover. Moving Link does not advertise – 100% of our revenues are generated from referrals. Moving Link unravels the mystery & solves your moving puzzle.

We are a “utility tool” for Real Estate Brokers and supply them and their clients with relevant information needed when planning a move.

Our Mobile App includes:

* Take a photo of your job and email it to us.

* Get rid of unwanted goods with our list of Charities

* We show you how to save money on your move. The more you do.. the move you save

* Tips – Moving Timeline, How to research Moving companies, Top 10 Moving Tips

* Moving Resources including – Pet Services, Rubbish Removal, Rental & Temporary Housing, Senior Services, Vehicle/Boat/Motorhome Transport and

Tips, resources, How to? and more!  Moving Link's FREE mobile app can be downloaded from the App Store, Google Play – just type in "Moving Link".

3 Big Myths About Seattle Area Home Buying

There are myths about the home shopping experience that must be addressed. We like to make the home buying experience as stress-free as possible, so please read these three big myths about home buying:

Myth #1: “That house has been on the market so long I bet we can work the seller down easily.”

Not necessarily. Exceptionally high days on market could mean almost anything. The seller could be bullheaded about their price. The seller may not be particularly motivated to sell for emotional or other personal reasons. Don’t forget: A sales-weary seller isn’t likely to respond to your host of rational reasons why their house should be a bargain.

Myth #2: “I want to look at foreclosed homes because they’re a real bargain and the banks need to unload them.”

Banks, like entrenched sellers, don’t always make decisions which seem rational based on obvious information. You can have a hard time divining the reason a bank chooses to reject an offer for a foreclosed or distressed property, and their decision may be based on financials which seem counterintuitive. The truth is, many distressed sales can be longer and more fraught than regular sales.

Myth #3: “I liked this house a lot, but with this market, I bet it will still be there if I decide to buy it.”

It’s very, very painful to see a client love a home but fail to make a move to purchase that home. If you fell in love with it, why wouldn’t someone else? Just because a property has been on the market a little while doesn’t mean it will stay on the market. The bonus myth in this one? Your “perfect” home is probably going to be a home with some small compromises. If you don’t make an offer on a home, you’re effectively saying, “I’m comfortable losing this home.”

Our job as your broker is to represent your interests and do our best to protect you along the way. If you’re pursuing a home purchase in the near future, please get in touch. There are many other ways we can lower your stress and help you find a great home
