because they’re moving to Canada

They’re selling their furniture because they’re moving to Canada.
(from a dictionary)

Does the "they’re moving" imply that they still stay in the old house before they move?

Thank you

    No, you don't normally move to another country and then try to sell the furniture in your old home.

    The way it has worked in my own life is that I stay in my home, sell the furniture before I move, and then move. But the original sentence doesn't imply that -- you could move into a hotel while you sell the furniture in your home before you move.
