Adjusting to the location
The most jarring thing about moving house can be adjusting to living in a new location. There are a number of things that can make this a difficult transition and the difficulty tends to be proportional to the distance that you move. For one you may need to adjust to new weather conditions. Moving from warm weather to a place with snow or vice versa can be very jarring both mentally and physically. Another thing that you may have to get used to is the population density and access to various services. This will be most noticeable when moving between an urban area and a rural area. Being used to an abundance or lack of people and getting used to the opposite is something that many people underestimate. Rural homes tend to be further away from various services such as hospitals so adjusting to having one closer or being further away is very important.
Learning the layout
Depending on the size of your new home, you may have to adjust to the layout of the house. The biggest thing that you will have to get used to is the storage of your belongings and where everything is being kept. In order to deal with this as easily as possible, it is important that you are as organised as possible when you are unpacking your belongings and have a clear system that makes sense to you. You may also need to get used to where the bathroom or other rooms that you may need in a hurry are. Generally, it will be fairly quick to adjust to the layout of a new home.
Every house has its quirks. Perhaps a door needs to be opened in a certain way or you need to go through some obscure process to turn the tap on. Whatever it is, there is bound to be something about the new house that you are not used to. The key is to make sure that you are aware of any of these intricacies before you move in. After you have purchased the property, ask the previous owners if there is anything that you should know. The reason for asking after buying and not before is that the owners may be hesitant to tell you of anything that may seem inconvenient. Once you know of these quirks you will want to test them and figure them out in person so that you don't waste time if you are in a rush.
