You will begin to prepare for moving day before the closing. The date of possession will be in your sales contract. Make sure to coordinate the date and time of your move with the buyer if the move falls on the same day. No matter how many times you have done it, moving is never easy. However, you can take certain organizational measures to ensure that your move is as smooth as possible.
Prior to moving, create a simple record-keeping system with a checklist and a schedule. The more prepared you are, the fewer surprises await you on moving day, so stay on schedule. A short to-do list might include:
- Hire movers
- Find storage
- Get moving supplies
- Pack ahead of time
- Safeguard valuables
- Transfer utilities, cable and phone
- Notify post office
- Take care of change of address notifications
- Clean both homes
- Re-key doors in new home
