Closing Checklist


Once your closing is scheduled there are just a few more things to take care of.

  • Confirm date, time and price with your movers or truck rental company.
  • Make arrangements for pets on moving day.
  • Contact all utility companies and schedule for your service to end on your closing date.
  • Contact regarding your change of address
  • You may attend the closing, or pre-sign your documents and not attend the closing.  The property changes owners at the closing table. When the closing is complete you no longer own the home.


  • Plan ahead, giving yourself time to de-clutter and pack up each room. One option would be to rent a pod for your driveway, in order to move things out of your home slowly.
  • If you are moving out of state, the website, will give you a list of licensed movers along with expert advice.
  • There are many types of moving services out there, offering as little as a truck rental, to as full service as packing up everything for you, and setting it all up in your new home. The cost can range from $20/day for a truck rental plus gas, to at least $1000 for a full service move across town. You can save money by avoiding the summer months, or by moving in the middle of the month.
  • The flyer below offers helpful questions to ask while interviewing moving companies.
