There is so much to do when buying a home, don't forget the details!
SOME THINGS TO REMEMBER WHEN MOVING INTO YOUR NEW HOME
CHANGE THE LOCKS
You don't know the whereabouts of past tenants' keys.
UPDATE YOUR ADDRESS
For voter registration, drivers license, tax forms, bank accounts, etc.
FORWARD YOUR MAIL
Complete a change of address form either online or at the Post Office.
Don't move what you don't need - donate, discard or sell.
SET UP UTILITIES
Contact gas, electric, water and cable companies well ahead of your move.
You'll know exactly how to set up your computer, TV and stereo in your new home.
LABEL OR COLOR-CODE SEALED BOXES
You'd be surprised how quickly unpacking can get confusing.
It's much easier to break out the mop and bucket when your space is empty.
RELAX AND ENJOY
Moving shouldn't be completely stressful - take a deep breath and smile once in a while
