A Luxury Home Manager’s Packing Checklist
Life transitions and new journeys can be challenging enough without the added stress of creating a new living space that feels like a home. One of the best parts of our program is how easy your move can be. You will not need a moving truck, but there are still a few everyday items that almost every home manager uses. Here is our suggested moving checklist for a luxury home manager.
Pack Light, Live Easy!
1.) Clothing – First off, you’ll need to bring your wardrobe! Keep your clothing and shoes organized in the closet or dresser. Many of the luxury rental properties have walk-ins with closet organizer systems for your convenience.
2.) Kitchen essentials – Bring along any kitchen essentials that you need for preparing and having meals. This will include plates, cups, silverware, pots and pans.
3.) Small kitchen appliances – You can bring small kitchen appliances that are easy to move such as a blender, toaster or coffee maker. Just be sure to tuck them away in a cabinet or pantry before showings.
4.) Towels and linens – You’ll need your own bed linens and towels for showering. If your property has a pool, you may also want to bring pool towels. Most properties will have laundry facilities, but if not, a washer and dryer can be rented.
5.) Everyday cleaning supplies – One of your roles as the home manager is to make sure the property is clean and ready for buyer showings. It’s important to make sure all countertops, mirrors, bathrooms and other surfaces are wiped down, the dishes are clean and put away, and floors are swept. Therefore, its recommended to have everyday cleaning supplies like dishwasher soap, bathroom cleaner, dust wipes, laundry detergent, glass cleaner, and a broom or vacuum on hand.
6.) Trash can and trash bags – Home managers are responsible for making sure trash is taken out regularly.
7.) Smart devices – Compact home smart devices such as an Amazon Echo or Google Nest are allowed for your own entertainment. If you don’t have a television to bring with you, you may want to rent one.
