While moving, which the average American will do over 11 times during their lifetime (Bureau, 2020), there are many important factors that may be overlooked, which could positively or negatively affect the overall outcome of the move. Some of these factors include area age demographics, nearby crime statistics, and local school district information. As well as obtaining all of this important information while searching for a new home, one must also remember to set up necessary utilities and schedule moving services prior to moving in. While using the Howdy Neighbor web application, movers will gain access to a virtual checklist, which contains important information about the area of interest. Users will then be provided with a customizable task reminder checklist to use prior to the move. Once these checklists are complete, the user will be able to move to their new home with confidence in the decision they made.
