Just in time for peak moving season, ADT (NYSE: ADT) has teamed up with home and lifestyle expert Sabrina Soto to offer advice on transforming a house into a home, while making the process less stressful and more enjoyable. From creating a move-day plan to making a new home feel safe and secure, homeowners are faced with a seemingly endless to-do list that can weigh on the minds of even the most organized. In fact, moving has been named the most stressful planned life event in a recent study 1, but with preparation and prowess it doesn’t have to be the daunting task that many people envision.
To kick off the campaign, starting today, Sabrina and ADT are showing people how to prepare, move and settle into their new home, while extending an invitation to submit a photo of a room that deserves a house-to-home makeover in the #MoveInMakeover contest*. Enter the contest at www.facebook.com/adt for a chance to win $1,000, an ADT Pulse ® home security and automation system, and a video chat with Sabrina about your house-to-home design inspiration and ideas.
“A fresh start and a clean slate – that’s what moving should be about,” said celebrity interior designer and ADT spokesperson Sabrina Soto. “However, sometimes the emotional turmoil of a move can take away from the process. Moving is an opportunity to design a new space that not only speaks to you aesthetically, but also functions in a way that suits your daily lifestyle. It’s so much more than choosing paint colors and matching patterns.”
