Making Your New House into a Home

At Move Central San Diego, we know that just because you are moving into a new house, it doesn’t always mean that the house feels like “home.” Many people buy older homes that haven’t been updated in a while to get a better location, save money, or get the amount of space they need. Others love finding a diamond in the rough and the challenge of making something their own with a little elbow grease and a vision. Whichever category you fit into, here are three apps we recommend for making your new house a home.

Top 3 Apps for Making Your New House a Home

Angie’s List – When moving to a new area, you are likely to be unfamiliar with the local contractors. This can set you up for disappointment and even being taken advantage of. One way to thwart this is to use the Angie’s List app, where you can find contractors, read their reviews, and even get help from Angie’s List to resolve issues.
Magic Plan – You may have a vision for your new home, and Magic Plan can help it come to fruition. It can help you place your furniture, design remodels, and price what a project will cost. It can even measure your room for you, just by taking a picture of it!
Paint Tester Pro – An easy way to make a home your own is to repaint, and this app makes it easy by letting you “try out” new and different colors right in the room you are painting, before you commit.
We hope these tools will help you see the potential in your new home, even if it doesn’t feel like “home” yet. We also want to remind you that if you are relocating in San Diego or the surrounding area, our professional moving service in San Diego is always here to help. Contact us today!
