Tips for Moving to a Luxury House in California

by Teresa Badger 08/27/2018

Ready to relocate to a luxury home in California? Moving to the Golden State sometimes can prove to be tricky, particularly for those who are operating with limited time at their disposal. Fortunately, we're here to help you complete a quick, easy move to a California luxury residence.

Now, let's take a look at three moving tips that every California luxury homebuyer needs to know.

1. Prepare for the California Climate

California is known for its mild winters and warm summers. As such, you'll want to pick up clothing that ensures you're able to dress comfortably throughout the year.

The average temperature in California ranges from the low 40s to the low 80s. However, the climate often varies depending on where you live in the Golden State.

For example, it rarely rains in San Diego, while Los Angeles experiences an average of 10 to 15 inches of rain each year. If you understand the local climate, you can pick up the right apparel and accessories to ensure you're prepared for all weather conditions.

2. Know the Local Traffic Patterns

If you are moving belongings to a California luxury home, you'll definitely want to map out your journey to your new address. By doing so, you can reduce the risk of encountering heavy traffic on your trip.

Typically, the heaviest California freeway traffic occurs between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. If you travel late in the morning or evening, you may be better equipped than others to avoid traffic.

If you're traveling with friends and family members, you can take advantage of the California highway carpool lanes as well. These lanes may help you reach your Golden State luxury home faster than if you traveled in standard traffic lanes.

3. Learn the State's Legislation

For those who are bringing plants or pets to California, you'll want to contact the California Department of Agriculture before your move. This will ensure you can comply with the department's regulations regarding the importation of plants or pets.

Also, you may want to contact the California Department of Motor Vehicles to ensure you can register your vehicle and get a valid California driver's license. And if you want to become a California voter, you should reach out to the Secretary of State for voter registration information.

Relocating to a Golden State luxury home can be fast and simple. If you need extra help along the way, you can always consult with a real estate agent too.

A real estate agent can provide expert guidance throughout the luxury homebuying journey. Plus, he or she can put you in touch with professional moving companies, offer moving day recommendations and much more. And if you ever have concerns or questions during the moving process, a real estate agent is happy to offer assistance.

Take the guesswork out of relocating to a California luxury residence – use the aforementioned tips, and you can enjoy a seamless move to the Golden State.
