Prior to/after Closing
You did it— your home is SOLD! Here’s a few things you’ll most likely want to do right away if you haven’t already.
Be sure to call the service providers for your gas, electric, water and trash and arrange to transfer the services out of your name.
Change Your Address!
You’ll want to be sure to update your address for your personal accounts as well as with the U.S. Postal Service and the DMV.
Mailbox/HOA keys (if applicable)
If you are selling a home in an HOA with common areas or community mailboxes, make sure you leave the keys handy for the new owners.
Warranties (if applicable)
Gather up the warranties, guarantees, and user manuals for the furnace, washer and dryer, dishwasher, and any other items that will remain with the house.
Garage remote (if applicable)
Don’t forget to leave the garage remote.
