Here's a helpful tip for people moving with children:
Take the time to research area attractions prior to your move. Learn where kids can participate in their favorite activities. Have the children plan a new adventure or pick a new place to visit each weekend and then go check it out together as a family.

Here is more advice on How to Explain Moving to Children:

What Home Sellers Need to Know About the Sellers Disclosure

It is never okay as a seller to avoid answering questions about your home on the sellers disclosure. Providing an explanation for any questionable items will help to offset worry on a buyer's part.

+Teresa Cowart does a wonderful job of explaining what sellers need to know about the sellers disclosure in her article.

Seller Disclosure: What You Need to Know
A Seller Disclosure is something all homeowners selling their home must give to buyers. It will list problems with the home. It’s important to note that you only have to disclose things that you are aware of.

It is when people are aware of problems and withhold the information that issues can arise. Buyers when notified of home issues can choose to use that as a negotiation tool to bring down the price of a home.

Here is a summary of what you need to know about a #sellersdisclosure .

My Team and I take pride in providing our clients the very best in service, real estate expertise and Internet technology. Our experience and professionalism benefit you, our clients, with all your home purchasing and selling needs.
Introduction
Helping our clients to achieve their home buying goals is almost like building a home. If you had one individual who had to clear the land, put in the foundation, do the framework, electrical, plumbing, finish carpentry and paint it would take forever and the results would not be as good as if you had an expert craftsman who specialized in each task. It’s the same thing in Real Estate. If one individual had to do everything, whether it’s searching the MLS for new listings, advertising, going on listing appointments, returning feedback calls, working with buyers, working with sellers or checking for all the legal and financial aspects of a closing, there’s no way one person can get it all done and do a superior job at each task.

I feel so blessed to have such an incredible team working with me and for our clients. Each member of the team contributes to the synergy that allows us to provide you Real Estate services that exceed your expectations and help you to achieve your home buying and selling goals.
Bragging rights
I have an amazing real estate team who works harder than any team I've seen, proud to say I have raised 2 wonderful children, and take pride in my husband. We also have 2 cats that keep us entertained everday!
