we're moving out of state in a month, I have the majority of the house packed up, working on the garage now. I've purged, donated and packed. now feeling overwhelmed as to when to end services on tv, elec, water, etc. is there a website with a checklist when to do all the last minute things? we're moving out first, cleaning then putting on the market. if you've moved a lot and have any tips to pass along please let me know. nervous Nellie
thanks in advance!

I believe that moving companies do have check lists to help you out when you are moving out of State. Contact them and see what they offer. Another resource, the Internet. research on the Net I am sure that you will find something to help you.

If you are going to put it on the market after you move you should leave the electric and heat/ac on. People looking at the house expect that.

I would expect the water, elec, and heat to be left on. A buyer will need to check those things.

Your realtor may have a list also. Best wishes to you and that all goes smoothly Smile

I know what you mean. Last year at this time we had sold a home and bought a new one simultaneously, with a 30-day closing. Boy-oh-boy, managing those logistics was like herding cats. But we got through it OK, and so will you.

Here's Martha Stewart to the rescue:
