You’ve spent a lot of time shopping for the perfect property. You made an offer, held your breath and – hurray! – you got the home! But now you’ve realized that you have to move in four weeks – and you’re far from prepared.
Don’t add stress to what was otherwise a smooth process. Make sure you have these things in place well in advance:
A good real estate lawyer. Selecting the right lawyer can take time, so you don’t want to leave this task to the last minute.
A reputable moving company. Start looking into moving firms right away to ensure you pick one that’s reputable, timely and will do a good job.
A contractor. Your new home may require some repairs and renovations that you want to get done right away.
Insurance. This is an easy detail to overlook. Don’t. Insurance costs can vary widely, and you want to make sure you take the time necessary, well in advance of your move, to select the right policy from the right company.
Getting these things in place in advance of your move will make the entire process go more smoothly. A good REALTOR® will help.
