Congratulations! You Sold Your Home – Now Its Time To Move!

You did it you sold your Phoenix AZ or Scottsdale AZ home. Congratulations. Now the fun part. Moving

It’s a given no one likes moving. Fun is not a word associated with moving. However, it doesnt have to be traumatic either.

Here are some tips & advice on moving process to cause as little pain as possible.


Plan Ahead

  • Send change of address to: Post office (give forwarding address), charge accounts and credit cards, subscriptions (change notice requires several weeks), and friends and relatives.
  • Contact gas, electric, and telephone companies in new location to arrange for immediate service.
  • Arrange insurance on the new home prior to the transfer of property.
  • Discontinue deliveries, electricity, water, gas, newspapers, and garbage collection, etc.
  • Cancel club memberships.
  • Transfer car title registration, if necessary, as well as driver’s license, city windshield sticker, and motor club membership.
  • Arrange for transporting pets and obtain immunization records from the vet.
  • Carry traveler’s checks for quick, available funds.
  • Service the car for the trip.
  • Disconnect the telephone.

One Week Before Moving

  • Clean and air out your stove.
  • Defrost refrigerator and freezer 24 hours before leaving.
  • Place charcoal or baking soda inside refrigerator and freezer to dispel odors.
  • Dispose of all open cans and jars that cannot be tightly sealed.
  • Remember to pack your telephone directory for future reference.

On Your Moving Day

  • Leave a copy of your travel itinerary with a friend or relative.
  • Carry all currency, jewelry, and personal papers (birth certificates, deeds, and documents).
  • Double check closets, drawers, and shelves to be sure they are empty.

Now the fun begins. You have the keys to your new home and you can move-in and unpack (ok, not fun). However, you are establishing roots in your new ‘dream home’ and can begin to create a lifelong amount of memories.

Enjoy this process, and make it much more settling with the help of an experienced Phoenix AZ Real estate agent.
