Preparing to move into you newly built home can be nerve-racking and exciting all at the same time.
As the big day approaches and you inch closer to the finish line, there are still a few things to do before you finally close.
Here’s what to be mindful of leading up to the big day of officially owning your newly built property.
Ask questions during construction
During the final phases of construction, do not hesitate to ask questions. The sales team and builders will be eager to respond.
Following along with the developments and construction of your new home means you can see progress in real time of a building becoming the home you’ve always dreamed of.
Plan on being flexible with deadline
Be prepared for the unexpected.
Providing your family with some leeway time before moving into your home will alleviate any stress that can arise from construction pauses or other forms of delay.
Your current living situation must align with when you are expected to close on the loan and with the projected time for completion.
Explore the neighborhood
You can share in the joy of being the first occupant of your home with your neighbors.
This is a great time to build a sense of community by getting to know your neighbors, who along with you are the first members of this new community.
If there’s a homeowner’s association, now would be a great time to learn about the committee and upcoming events and activities you and your family can participate in.
Plan for you pets
Moving into a home, especially a new build, requires a lot of multitasking and can be a little stressful. That stress can be transferred to your pets, too, if you do not plan ahead.
Make sure to have a place for your pets to stay at during this time, especially if there’s a fluid move-in date.
Also be sure to bring your pets over at least once prior to moving so they can get a sense of what their new home will look and smell like.
