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.

Using candles safely
Like most home products, candles are safe as long as you use them 
properly. The problem is thinking that as long as a candle doesn't fall over 
or come into contact with anything flammable, it is okay. 
However, according to the National Candle Association (candles.org) 
there's more you can do to ensure candle safety.
• Do not place candles where they can be knocked over by pets. (Cats 
can be particularly fascinated by the flickering light.)
• Trim the wick to 1/4 inch before burning. A long wick can cause the 
candle to drip.
• Don't burn a candle all the way down. At about two inches, put the 
candle out. •
• Despite what you see in movies, don’t try to bravely extinguish a 
candle with your fingers. 
• Avoid using a candle during a power outage. Use flashlights instead.
• Never use a candle as a night light next to your bed.
And, of course, never leave a candle burning unattended. If you need to 
leave the room, put the candle out.
