Celebration in the Dugout: Home Buying Success!
Congratulations! You have made it around the baseball diamond and into your new home. Learning the game can be a challenge; playing it even more so. But you have successfully completed the process and won. As you head to the dugout, your team cheering you on, high-fives and pats on the back congratulating you, a rush of accomplishment and pride washes over you: you are officially a homeowner.
The journey was not always necessarily easy but your hard work allowed you to wipe off the dirt and sweat as you ran towards your goal. Now you head back into the dugout for the celebration:
Time to Move – Acquire boxes from local grocery stores, offices, or a local box store. Remember to utilize luggage, bags, and baskets you already have for your move. These can all be packed with items in place of more boxes. Wrap breakables with bubble wrap or old newspaper. Also, keep all valuables and important documents with you if you are using a moving company.
Be Organized – Label everything! Keep your items together by room so unpacking is easier. Things that you will need immediately should be easily accessible and kept at the top of the pile.
Refer Your Realtor and Loan Officer – Your team of professionals worked diligently to meet your requirements and get you the home you wanted that best suits your financial needs. The biggest compliment and sign of appreciation you can give them is by referring them to friends, family, or coworkers who are about to begin the homebuying process. Many professionals today still rely heavily on referrals in order to maintain a successful business. By spreading the word of your extraordinary experience, you are showing your utmost thanks for the services they provided you.
Enjoy Your New Home – Once the boxes have been moved, as you slowly unpack, remember to take a look around and revel in your accomplishment. Be proud of the goal you have just reached in buying your own home. Decorate and make the space your own.
Your home is a source of pride. Congratulations on becoming a homeowner! It was a pleasure coaching you to homebuying success!
