Other Important Things to Remember when moving into your new Home:

  • If you haven’t already, change your Address with your local Post Office.  This can also be done online to skip the line.
  • Change your address with your banks, credit card companies, IRS, investment institutions, employer, etc.
  • Rekey all exterior locks in the house.  Many people had access to the key during the transaction process
  • If there is a pool, be sure to balance the chemicals and do required maintenance.  Best to hire a Pool service professional.
  • Contact your tax attorney or preparer about any potential tax benefits for homeownership
  • If a home warranty was not included in the transaction closing, you may want to purchase a home warranty.
  • Before moving in your furniture and belongings, this is the best time for a deep clean and to pest-proof you new home.  Cleaning the floors, baseboards and windows will never be this easy again.
  • Find the essentials and organize as you unpack.
  • For insurance purposes in case of theft or fire, make an inventory list of all your belongings as you unpack.  Be sure to include brand names, model & serial numbers along with pictures if possible.
