When you buy a new home for sale in Scottsdale, you’ll want to share the news – and the best way to do that is through moving announcements. But what are moving announcements, why should you send them, what should they include, and who gets them? Here’s what you need to know.
Everything You Need to Know About Moving Announcements
Sharing information on your new home sweet home is important, and you can do it with elegance and style. Moving announcements are special postcards or cards that help you share and confirm your new contact details with the people who need them. (As a side benefit, you can use a moving announcement to reconnect with people you haven’t talked to in a while, too.)
What Should You Include on a Moving Announcement?
Your moving announcement can be as simple – or as complex – as you’d like, but at minimum, it should include:
- Your full name or the name you’re known by, and if there are multiple members of your household, all their names as well
- Your old address for a point of reference
- Your new address
- Your moving date, unless you’ve already moved
- An indication of whether it’s a temporary or permanent move
- Other contact details, including your social media handles, email address and phone number if appropriate
Who Should You Send Moving Announcements To?
Although your list might look a bit different from someone else’s, you should send moving announcements to anyone you want to know about your big change. Naturally, family members (and people you consider almost family) should be at the top of the list. Close friends and family friends should also be on the list, as well as kids’ friends’ families. You can also send them to your neighbors and work colleagues.
When Should You Send Out Moving Announcements?
You can send your moving announcements before you move or when you’re already settled into your new home in Scottsdale. The important part is that you don’t overtax yourself by adding yet another thing to your To-Do list before you’re ready.
