There are a lot of different things to take care of when you’re moving. It’s easy to forget some of them, but we want to discuss some things you should take into account when planning your move so you can make sure all your bases are covered. Here’s where to start:

1. Hire movers right away. Don’t pick the first company that sends you a postcard; I’ve made that mistake before. Ask for a referral or look up different companies on Yelp!

2. Change your address. Log on to to change your address as soon as you close the transaction on your new home. While you’re at it, change out your financial records, banking records, and DMV records. Make sure they all have your new address.

3. Turn off/on your utilities. If you’re a seller, shut down the utilities in your name within two to three days of closing so you aren’t charged any extra. If you’re buying, set up those utilities before you actually move in.

4. Call the phone and cable companies. You may want to keep the same company or you may want to change things up. Do your due diligence first to make sure the quality in your neighborhood is there if you plan to keep the same company.

5. Claim proof of residency. This is an important step, especially if you’re moving into a strong school district in a highly sought after area.

Hire movers right away.

If you or someone you know is looking to buy or sell, give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to talking with you soon!
