In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and being deemed “essential business” by the governor of the state of Florida, we want to assure you, our loyal customers, that Pro Movers Miami has, and always will,put the safety of our team and that of our customers first and foremost. We are committed to following all best practices and guidelines for sanitation and for cleanliness, and are taking all of the necessary precautions as we proceed to service your move. To that end, extensive measures are being taken wherever possible to combat the spread of this virus, while still being safe and efficient as we continue to provide you with the first-class, five star moving experience that you have come to expect of us. Here are some of the proactive measures we’ve implemented and will continue to implement:

  • All estimates are being provided over the phone, virtually, on-line or via email until further notice.
  • Pre-move wellness checks for both our customers and our crew members, where all will be asked to advise us if you feel ill or suspect exposure to the virus. For our movers it would be mandatory that they stay home, and for our customers, moving services can be rescheduled, postponed or cancelled to mitigate risk, should that be necessary.
  • Our crews are equipped with gloves, disinfectant sprays/wipes and hand sanitizer for your protection and theirs.
  • We have put into effect social distancing measures, and although we have always valued the professionalism and respect that comes along with a good introductory handshake and a departing thank you, we ask for your understanding that for the safety and well-being of everyone, there’ll be no handshake or touching of any kind.
  • Upon arrival, our crew will still introduce themselves, walk through the home with appropriate social distance, begin to protect the home with all safeguards like floor runners, and door jams (as they always do), but in addition we ask you now (with all due respect), to please give them the appropriate space they need to safely and efficiently service your move and allow them space to do their job.
  • When available and appropriate, open doorways and windows to increase air circulation and ventilation.
  • We are also taking measures to sanitize the cabs and boxes of our trucks, as well as all blankets, pads, tools and equipment after each and every move to reduce any risk of cross-contamination.
  • It is our hope and our expectation that you will take the same precautionary measures that we are taking, and that will also sanitize and wipe down any and all exposed surfaces and furniture prior to our arrival. Anything that you can do to help keep our working conditions safe and sanitary for our men, is equally appreciated.
  • Owners / office staff will be working around the clock from home with complete access for our team and our customers via phone, email and text.

Again, thank you for choosing Pro Movers Miami, it is our sincere pleasure to serve you. Our Promise to you, and no matter what circumstances, is to continue to deliver the 5 stars moving service that our customers depend on.

Tips for selling your luxury home in Miami

Have you decided to move somewhere else? Did you receive a better job offer from abroad? Whatever is the reason behind the decision to move, you are probably going to sell your old house or apartment. That is not an easy task, even if you own an in-demand property. Selling a property requires certain skills and preparation, but don’t worry we are here to help you. Stay with us to learn the best strategies for selling your luxury home in Miami. Speaking of the actual move, you should contact your Kendall movers to help you with relocation-related tasks. You should know that professional movers know relocation processes inside-out and that they are equipped with the best possible tools. In other words, they know how to deal with every type of relocation. But let’s see what you have to do to sell your property.

Selling your luxury home requires extensive knowledge of the local real estate market

Researching the local market is one of the most crucial steps in the process of selling your home. Before you list your home and call Pro Movers Miami, you need to understand how the market works and what are the average prices in your neighborhood. You must know this if you wish to set the right price for your property. The first thing you should do is to check if your neighborhood is a sellers or buyers market. If real estate offerings are much higher than demands, this means that you are dealing with the buyer’s market. This means that it takes longer to sell a house.

What you should do before selling your luxury house?

In order to get the most for your property, you need to present it in the best possible light. There are several ways to do this:

  • Declutter your home. Clean and empty space is the most appealing for potential buyers because they can imagine themselves living there.
  • Do the necessary repairs. Consider investing in low-cost repairs that will boost the value of your home. Expensive renovations are not going to pay off.
  • Lighten up the space. Good lighting creates an atmosphere of luxury and makes the space look spacious. Therefore, you should invest in new lightbulbs.
  • Post high-resolution quality photos. When you finish the preparations, you should take some good photos that will attract potential buyers to come and see the place. If you post grainy and badly captured photos, people will automatically discard your property without even coming to see it. Consider hiring a professional photographer or ask a friend who knows how to handle a camera to help you out.

It is essential to hire a quality real estate agent when selling your luxury home

Whether you are selling or buying a property it is of utmost importance to have a good real estate agent. Here is why:

  • Education and know-how. Real estate agents do this for a living, and they have extensive knowledge and loads of experience about the local real estate market. They are certainly more qualified than you are, and this is why you should get their assistance.
  • They will do the job for you. What’s so great about hiring real estate agents is that they do everything. They will handle everything from answering the phone to taking offers for your property. They will also handle all the paperwork and welcome potential home buyers.
  • Negotiation skills. A top-notch agent will get a better deal for your property. They work for a commission, so getting a better price is in mutual interest.

Hire quality contractors as well

Like we already pointed out if you wish to sell your property quickly and for a good price you will have to invest in refurbishing. The trick is to repair what is necessary with minimal expenses. This way you will be able to maximize the value of your home while boosting your moving budget at the same time. Remember that all these repairs require skilled contractors. So, what repairs are most important?

  • Get rid of the pests like woodworms and mice.
  • Fix structural problems like cracks, leaking pipes, and faulty electrical installations.
  • Repaint the walls, but use neutral colors.

On the other hand, replacing tiles, refurbishing kitchen cabinets, or buying new furniture are all pricey investments that do not pay off. Mostly because there is a possibility that the new owners might not like your choices. In short, you should make the property fully functional, so that the new owners can decorate it according to their own wishes. Nothing more than that.

Point out all the advantages of your neighborhood

People are also choosing their homes based on the quality of the neighborhood. So, even if you have the best property in the world, but it is located in a lousy neighborhood, people will avoid it. If you ever find yourself in such a situation, the only thing you could do is to point out all the best things about the neighborhood.

  • Crime rates. Simply put, if the neighborhood is labeled as unsafe, you will have trouble selling your property.
  • Costs of living. While it is important to choose a quality neighborhood for safety reasons, most people choose their homes based on the costs of living.
  • Quality of schools. Especially important for families with kids. Point out what nearby schools are available and why would they present an excellent choice.
  • Green areas and parks. Another important factor for families with children.
  • Public transportation. Public transportation can be very useful. Is your neighborhood well connected with other parts of the city? Don’t forget to mention this.

All things considered, selling your luxury home might present a challenge, but if you follow our advice you will be on the right track. Good luck!
