Costs To Consider When Moving

Often times, especially when dealing with first time home buyers, people will ask me what other expenses they need to consider when buying a home.  Here are some important items to consider:

- How much will it cost you to move?  Will you use professional movers or will you move yourself?  Do you need to purchase packing materials?

-  Closing costs not only include your legal bills, but also your taxes and utility hook ups.

-  Will there be a cost to activate your telephone service, internet, cable, etc?

-  Are there any immediate repairs needed or desired to be made to your new home?  How much will that cost?

-  Do you need to purchase furniture for your new home?

All of the above are items you need to consider when buying a home.  There is the obvious cost of purchasing a home, but then there are all of the little items you need to consider that can add up quickly!  Thanks for reading!
