Our country, well let’s be honest the entire world grinded to a halt last spring. We struggled in our jobs, businesses and within our homes. We struggled to get through every day issues, but then it dawned on us. Life was still moving forward and by moving I mean “MOVING”.

Houses were still being put on the market, sold and people were still moving. There was no stopping that domino effect. Not even a virus could stop that momentum.

And then there were calls from friends looking for help with their parents. They were not allowed to see them, let alone move them into a care facility. Again, life doesn’t stop for a virus attacking the world. Your parents and loved ones still need care, and being in lockdown unable to help caused an incredible amount of anxiety for our clients and their parents.

These are only two situations where COVID didn’t care. It was a truly huge relief when the team from Just In Time Solutions were given the “all clear” to help these people. We couldn’t help but worry about their welfare and state of mind before, during and after a move.

You see moving in the best of times, you all know is known as one of the top 5 most stressful things anyone can do. Add COVID and now you’re doing it alone, without help? No, that’s not the way it has to be. Our team has been allowed to help before, during and after a move. Whether its a downsize, a senior’s move or you and your family are upgrading – we are allowed and are HERE to help.

You Do Not Have To Do This Alone.

You can stand in your kitchen and living room and slowly turn around, and that’s where the overwhelming sense of anxiety starts. You start to look at your surroundings, about everything that has to be done before you list and then again before you move. The housing market is at an all time high. It’s so hard to understand and getting caught up in the momentum is completely natural. When the dust settles and you realize that your friends and family are unable to help due to COVID restrictions, that’s when it dawns on most people – “I’m not going to be able to do this alone”. Two pieces of advice we want to you know:

1 – This is just one day, one week out of an entire lifetime and you are going to make it. There’s no doubt in our minds, you’ll get there. Take one thing at a time. Complete one task at a time. Eventually you’ll see through this situation and you’ll be ok.

2 – Instead of struggling, instead of just being “ok” ….call us for help. There is absolutely no reason for you to struggle with any of this.

If your family is in a situation where your parents need to be moved whether it’s leaving hospital, their home of 40 years or into assisted living. THIS. This is what we do. We walk in and we look after the stuff, so that you can look after them. One client said to us ” you’re the best accident I ever had”.

We can’t stand to see people struggle, it’s just not something we can sit back and watch. So please reach out, don’t get yourself into a position that is going to break you or your family.

Why Hire a Certified Professional Organizer BEFORE Listing!

“Purging, packing and assisting with the house before listing

 and the move will save your client time and money.” 

“Give your home the competitive edge!”

“Show well, sell quicker”

Difference between a Home Stager and a Professional Organizer

Professional home stagers are practiced in the art of preparing a home for resale. They work with the “flow” of a home, eliminate clutter, edit and arrange furniture, and even assist in enhancing curb-appeal.  With the aid of a professional home stager, your house can make a notable first impression on potential homebuyers.

Professional organizers aim to help individuals and businesses take control of their surroundings, their time, their paper, and their systems for life.  When we come in a home we add to the service of a stager, by assisting in clearing the storage areas, clearing the clutter, boxing items that will not be needed until after the move, getting rid of items they not longer need and making the storage areas look larger and more useful. Organizing your home before you list will make it easier for you to tidy up before a showing and make your move less stressful.

– “ From Chaos to Calm!”

De-cluttering your home is so the buyers that come through your home can see in the closets, storage areas and  corners of basements.  Also so they can get close to the windows to check out to the furnace and check it out and any other areas in the home.

When a potential buyer comes in and sees a home full of clutter they automatically think there is not enough storage!  Also a home inspector can not get in to do a proper job of assessing the home.
