When Can I Schedule Movers When Do I Get My Keys

When Can I Schedule Movers When Do I Get My Keys

As if buying a home isn’t stressful enough....we’ll add to it planning and scheduling movers, turning on utilities, changing mailbox keys, change of address forms, mail forwarding, and keeping up with current bills so they don't get lost in the wonderful world of the post office.

I have bought and sold several homes and helped over 500 families get their keys.  Being able to give them a closing date or a day that they will get keys in hand is getting more and more difficult. Buyer question: "When can I move in?" Realtor answer: "When I give you the keys?" What!?! What are you supposed to do with that answer? Then you add the lovely government bureaucracy of the CFPB that wants to make things easier and better for the "consumer" but now the ability to try and at least come close to giving you a move in date has gotten worse. By the way, did I mention to you that the awesome down payment assistance program you are using can delay things too? You thought the Cox internet provider window of 12pm - 6pm was bad.....what about this: "Well Mr. Buyer we are scheduled to close on the 25th, provided CFPB guidelines are met and everyone does their part in a timely manner I can tell you with certainty that you can plan movers between the 25th of the month to the 5th of the next month."

How is anyone supposed to give proper notice to landlord that you’re no longer renewing the lease, so you don't lose deposits? How do you schedule movers? Ugh!!

It doesn't have to be this difficult and yes, we can tell you with certainty a closing and move in date. It is essential that when you decide to buy a home, or sell your home you select a great real estate team! Make sure that you are working with a team of professionals that know what they are doing, and that work hard for YOUR best interest! A good real estate agent will have a team of professionals that he/she works with, and recommends; from lenders, escrow officers, inspectors, etc.  There are a lot of people involved in each transaction, about 25 in total, that will in one way or another touch your transaction, so it is important to have a good process of communication in place as well. A professional will look ahead to cover all bases to ensure that when the contract closing date arrives, you are getting your keys and able to move in. We are working for you and our job is to ensure that the move in date isn't another added stress in your life. We will inform you and recommend things like ConnectedUtilities, where one call will turn on all of your services to your new home including cable and Internet. Know who you are working with, ask questions and get well informed.

Loving life!
