Step 16: Time to Plan Your Move

It is Time to Plan Your Move

Now that your earnest money has been dropped off and the inspection period is done, it’s safe to hire movers and start packing! Call now to get moving estimates and secure a mover as they often get booked up weeks in advance. Also, if you’re moving into a condo building check with the HOA President or Property Management Company to see if you need to pay any move-in fees, reserve an elevator, or if there are move-in restrictions, etc.

Remember that you can’t move into your new place until closing is finished as that is when you’re given the keys. So please plan your move-in day for the day following closing.

Moving Supplies

Start gathering boxes and packing supplies. Often you can find free boxes on CraigsList. Otherwise, Uhaul,Uline, and Usedcardboardboxes are all great places to get moving supplies.


Moving can be incredibly stressful on pets so consider having them stay with a friend or in daycare for a few days while you move and get settled into your new place.
