I will be adding to this as we go....there are some placeholders for future expenses, and this is not exhaustive!!! I do have a binder to keep all of this stuff, but wanted to share what it will actually cost to move a family of 4, with 3 pets.
As of 9/22/14:
Selling the house
Part of selling a house is making some improvements or fixing things to make it more marketable. We are doing the work ourselves, so that cuts down on expenses.
- Paint and supplies - $109.51
- Repairs to house - $494.18 (may be able to return something and lower this)
- Cleaning - $75.82
- Curb appeal - $77.56
- Airfare for 4 -
Here is where we can start claiming stuff on our taxes!! We are trying to keep this down, but some of it is going to be high. We are packing our stuff ourselves and collecting boxes as we can. But in the end, we may need to purchase some stuff.
- Packing Materials (boxes, tape, filler) - $19.05
- Moving company (yes, we are hiring movers) -
GRAND TOTAL: $ 776.12
