Portland, OR, January 02, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Finally, the housing markets in many areas of the country are seeing an upswing in the housing market. Portland’s real estate climate is among those that are looking increasingly healthy. Vacancies and inventories are becoming sparse, because residents are beginning to buy. Interest rates are at record lows, and because homes are priced at moderate or even low prices, investors and homeowners-to-be are grabbing the opportunities. This is welcome news, but with the increased demand for moving services, it’s becoming more difficult to get an appointment with the companies that provide moving services.
Before the housing market’s rebound, homeowners and renters were staying put in their homes. That meant that moving businesses pared down their manpower to align with the decreased demand. Now that the situation has reversed, moving companies need to hire more workers and increase their hours in order to keep up with the demand. Any person who has tried to do the job of relocating all by themselves can attest to the importance of hiring a professional moving company. Relocation is stressful enough in the best of circumstances, but without the expertise, tools, equipment, and strong backs of professional movers, the process can be a nightmare.
What should you do to get a solid team of packers set up to do your job? For one thing, it’s crucial to start getting estimates as soon as you know you’re changing addresses. When you make your initial inquiry phone calls, ask the representative of the company if they move locally and/or long distance, depending on your need. Make sure they are licensed, insured, and bonded. Choose movers that are experienced, courteous, and reliable. Hiring novices can mean problems down the road, so make sure you inquire about skill levels, expertise, and the equipment that they have.
Aaron Schaller of Redefyne Moving said, “We have experienced just about every situation involving tight hallways and stairways, heavy furniture, and more.”
“There isn't anything we can't handle,” he said. Schaller’s can-do attitude means that no matter how busy the market gets, or how swamped his movers may be, you can still count on his company to get you from your old address into your new one.
It’s nice to see sold signs popping up again all around the neighborhoods. Dwindling supply means buyers have to be vigilant if they are in the market for a new home, because the early birds are certainly catching worms. Once buyers nab that house of their dreams, their next call should be to a mover to set up an estimate for an estimate to transport their belongings to their new address.
