Moving into a new Beacon Hill condo can either be an exciting or nerve-wracking proposition, but the way you assimilate will not always be a reflection of your personality. It will more likely be a combination of planning and circumstances. As for your children, the way they emotionally handle a move may be more unpredictable. Children who react intensely to situations that most adults find slightly stressful will have a greater potential of becoming upset when moving into a new place located in a neighborhood they are not familiar with. The key to making things smoother is to take certain actions in advance. If you plan on buying Beacon Hill condo for sale in downtown Boston, consider the following tips for a stress-free move with kids.

Explain the Situation

Just like adults, children do not enjoy facing unpleasant surprises. If you’re selling your home to move into a Boston Beacon Hill condo, this process is bound to take at least a few weeks. You will need to explain what is happening before the  Beacon Hill real estate agent, appraiser, home inspector, and prospective buyers start coming around. It’s important to put a positive spin on everything you explain, but don’t suggest everything will be better. A more tactful approach is to explain that certain things your children enjoy will stay the way they are, and a strong focus should be placed on their bedrooms.

Expect Some Tantrums and Reactions

Perfect planning does not always result in perfect execution. Regressive behaviors, disrupted sleep patterns, and tantrums are the things you should be prepared to see. These behaviors may last a few days and taper down after a couple of weeks, but if they persist for more than a month, you may want to discuss the matter with a pediatrician. More important is to be prepared to handle the emotional changes your children exhibit during and after the move.

Present Appropriate Literature

If you have very young children, The Berenstain Bears’ Moving Day is a book they can enjoy while they learn about what is involved in a move. Children who are six years and older may find Where I Live by Eileen Spinelli more enjoyable, especially if they are girls. In the case of the Berenstain Bears, you can also search YouTube for the companion animated episode.

Explore the Neighborhood Together

This strategy will work to your advantage since you are moving to downtown Boston, a place where family entertainment is plentiful. You get to play Beacon Hill real estate agent and tour guide at the same time, but you have to do some preliminary research. The goal is to highlight fun things to do.

While planning on changing your neighborhood for the betterment of you and your children, consider the many beautiful lofts, condos, and penthouses for sale in Boston Midtown Get in touch with a reliable real estate agent at Ford Realty, and we can help you find the property that suits you best.
