If you are in the process of transitioning into a new home or have recently done so, I have some important information about this undertaking.
If you are a homebuyer who is transitioning into a new home there are a few key items you should always remember in this process.
First of all, be careful to get your new mail. Reach out to the United States Postal Service with the date on which you will be taking occupancy of your new home. Also remember to give them your new address so that all mail will be properly re-routed when you move.
If you are not within city limits, where trash services may be provided for free, contact your agent to sort out the details of how you will handle waste in your new home. At this point, your agent can reach out to the seller in order to find out how they managed their trash during their occupancy.
In today’s modern age, internet, too, must be considered. Some neighborhoods only allow a particular service provider, while others may not hold such stipulations. Either way, make sure that you take proper steps to set up your internet in your new home.
On a similar subject, you will also need to sort out your cable. If you do plan on using a cable or dish service for television, you can often take care of this step concurrently with your internet service.
Finally, gas, water, and electricity are three very important services not to neglect in your transition. In and around Omaha, these services will be taken care of by MUD for gas and water, and OPPD for electricity.
Transitioning into a new home will be much easier with these items handled.
If you are feeling overwhelmed, remember that your agent should always be there to serve you throughout the process. The job of your Realtor is to ensure that you find the right home and that your transition into that home is seamless.
