This tip sounds like a no brain-er but even I have lost the moving battle and uttered “UH OH, My FURNITURE ISN’T FITTING!!!!!”
I stress to all, make sure to get measurements of your current furniture (esp. big pieces or important pieces). When you find a home you love, let the agent know you will need a little extra time at the showing to check out the measurements. I absolutely love it when I hear some one asks me if that is ok. I normally will take along a measuring tape to these showing to help with the measuring. This is the best way to gauge space. An empty home is notorious for not giving a realistic view of how things will fit. Even the best Tetris player can land in this downfall.
This one simple tip can affect your moving day greatly.
