#1 Consider Renting a Storage Unit 

It's not a bad idea to rent a storage unit while your home is on the market. This will help you jump-start the packing process before your home sells. Not only will this help you get a head start on packing, but it will also free your home of unnecessary clutter. Removing clutter is one of the top tips for staging your home. Get rid of non-essentials and excess furniture when you list your home so your home is always ready to show. 

#2 Sell Unused Items 

One of the best perks of packing is it allows you to declutter and get rid of items that you don't need any longer. This is a great way to make a little extra cash, declutter your home, and it elements items that you won't have to store or move. Have a garage sale or consider using online garage sales and online marketplaces to sell your items.

#3 Tips for Packing 

Packing and unpacking is a lot of work...and stressful, especially when you can't find what you need when you move into your new home. It doesn't have to be this way when you are organized! Consider these useful packing tips. 

#4 Label  EVERYTHING! 

This might feel like a hassle when you are doing it but trust us when everything is labeled your life will be so much easier when its time to unpack. Go out and buy a pack of colored markers and label everything by room. If there are items you know you will want immediately, make an additional mark so you know which box to open.

#5 Pack Smart

When it comes to breakables, kill two birds with one stone and use towels and blankets to wrap all breakable items. This will save you money on packing materials and those items will need to be packed away anyway. 

#6 Your Home is SOLD 

Once the best real estate agents at the Lake of the Ozarks sell your home, it's time to get packing! Although, before moving into your new home there are a few things that will need to be done in addition to packing.
