Before Moving in to New Home Checklist of What to Do - Any Tips?
We're waiting to hear if we'll get this short sale home we have an offer on. I'm trying to plan ahead, if we do get it, we'd have a quick closing and won't have too much time to "think" about what has to be done.
Would like to know if anyone who's moving, or recently moved made a good checklist of what they did after closing and before they moved in to their new home, what you may have forgotten to do, or wish you'd done before moving in.
So far, with this particular house and its condition I have:
Call electric, water and garbage p/u companies (will do phone at a later date as I won't be living there right away)
Change code on garage door (don't think they have the remotes)
Dumpster rental (lots of stuff to throw away)
Call glass/window company (few panes are broken)
Cleaning company (this house is filthy and needs 3 cleanings, this would be the first one!)
Post Office to forward mail (won't be living there for a while)
Call Fence company (needs to be fenced in)
The home needs work/remodeling so I won't be living in it for a while.
When we start living there I know the usual that has to be done, what I'm trying to find a good list for would be things that I need to make sure I do before we move in.
Thanks for any input/ideas!!
