Any move, whether from one city to another or just down the street, is a ton of work and is often quite stressful for those doing the moving. There are so many things to be done – both directly relating to the move itself or as a result of it – when you are changing your address.
If you are buying a home, you should know, up front, what all of your costs are going to be so you can build a budget that will avoid financial surprises. The list will differ if you are buying a resale or if you are buying a brand new home. You should also know exactly what to expect in terms of processes.
For the move itself, you will need to talk to several moving companies and make decisions about how you see the move being handled. There are many people to notify, systems to have changed, etc. No doubt, you will feel like you are living in a constant state of chaos, tripping over boxes, making lists of your lists, and so on.
I want my clients to be prepared for the all-important purchase of a home and I like to help my clients look at their move as an exciting and joyous event. To this end, I have created a checklist to be used as a guide to help take some of the stress and effort out of the process.
If you would like a copy of this checklist, please call me at 613-721-4210 and I’ll get a copy to you as quickly as possible.
