How to Simplify Your SLO-Paso Move with Kids

Moving to the San Luis Obispo-Paso area with your family is a big step. The idea of a new home and a new life in this beautiful region is exciting. Yet, moving, especially with young kids, can be stressful. There's a long checklist to tackle: efficient packing, supporting kids through the transition, and establishing new routines swiftly in the new home. However, adults know a significant chunk of the stress stems from the dual task of selling the old home while hunting for and purchasing a new one. Juggling the perfect transition can be a heavy lift, which is no wonder why moving lands a spot in the top five most stressful life events.

Traditional Moving Challenges

  1. Finding Your New Home:
  • Competition is fierce in SLO-Paso’s housing market, making it tough to secure your dream home. When you add contingencies, such as selling your existing home into the mix, the stress amplifies. For parents, this means a prolonged period of uncertainty that can be unsettling for both kids and pets who sense the tension.
  1. Selling Your Current Home:
  • Preparing your home for viewings while managing a busy family life is a tall order. Keeping the home clean and staged with kids running around and pets causing messes can feel like a never-ending battle. This chaotic environment can cause anxiety and disrupt daily routines, which are crucial for children's and pets’ sense of security.
  1. The Actual Move:
  • The financial strain of moving can be quite a burden. Costs such as short-term rentals, storage facilities for your belongings, and dining out (since you won’t have immediate access to a fully equipped kitchen) can add up fast. Additionally, the physical process of moving is exhausting and disruptive, especially for kids who might find it hard to adjust to new surroundings and for pets who might find the new environment stressful.

Each phase of the traditional moving process presents unique challenges that can exacerbate stress levels in families, transitioning far from smooth.

NAF Cash changes this by simplifying the process, letting you move into your new home quickly without the headache of unexpected showings.

Cash buyers have an advantage as they can get the home they want quickly and may even pay less. About 27% of buyers use cash, and they might save about 11% . This can save you money at purchase, and if you have a home to sell, you could potentially make more on that end too.

Research shows that staged homes often sell for more and much faster. There's also virtual home staging, which can save you on staging costs. Many buyers are willing to pay more for staged homes, sometimes offering more than the asking price. With NAF Cash, the financial stress of moving is reduced, letting you focus on settling your family into the new SLO-Paso area.

Beating the Odds: The Magana Family's Success with NAF Cash

Rogelio Castro

Rogelio Castro, a Chula Vista Branch Manager at NAF, an affiliated company of NAF Cash, shares a tale of Ivan and Crystal Magana and their three kids. They wanted to move from their San Diego condo to a more spacious single-family residence. However, the highly competitive San Diego real estate market proved to be a tough hurdle. Despite placing offers on multiple properties, often above the asking price, they found themselves outbid by all-cash offers repeatedly.

Then came NAF Cash into the picture. This program leveled the playing field for the Maganas, enabling them to make an all-cash offer on a home they loved and clinch the deal at the asking price amid a market rife with bidding wars.

Here's a snapshot of the Magana's journey with NAF Cash:

  • Quick Home Purchase: they swiftly secured their new home at the asking price, a significant win in a highly competitive market.
  • Smooth Transition: the program allowed them a stress-free move into their new home while also giving them time to stage their condo for a successful sale.
  • Higher Sale Price: by taking the time to stage their condo, they sold it above the asking price, matching what experts say; nicely decorated homes usually get more money from buyers.
