What to do while you're waiting to move
Now that your house is sold, now what? Life can return to normal with no longer ensuring that the house is spotless at all times and making sure your schedule is flexible for showings. Hooray!
Paperwork - I'll ensure that your paperwork is submitted to your lender and lawyer of choice in a timely fashion. They will be in contact with you when they are ready for you to sign any paperwork if applicable.
House hunting - If you are wanting to buy something now that your house has sold, now is the time to start looking. In most cases lenders will need to know that you have a firm sale on your house before buying another. If you are relocating to a different area, I can refer you to an agent in a different area through my trusted referral network.
Contact - Contact your utility providers, property managers (if applicable), and insurance company to notify them of your upcoming move and possession date.
Possession day - On the day of possession, your home should be in the same condition it was when the buyer had seen it. Ensure your house is clean and all keys and openers remain as well as any other items negotiated in the contract. Also ensure that there isn't anything unwanted left behind for the new owners.
