Just Sold Your House? Do These Three Things Next

If you just signed the paperwork on your home, it’s time to drop everything, celebrate, and walk away, right? Not quite. There are still a few more things you need to do before you’re finally done. These tips can help you finish things up and move forward.
Keep the Paperwork
One of the best things you’ll want to do is pack the paperwork in an easy to find the box. You may need to refer back to it, even after everything is done. Make sure you keep proof of any improvements you made, too, in case there are questions or warranty problems. You may need to access these documents quickly if you’re about to move, so make certain you know where the box is at all times.
Find That New Home
Where are you headed? If you didn’t have that in mind before you started the process, it’s time to think about it now. You’ll want to go through many of the steps you did to buy this house. Look in a variety of spots, and buy a home that will be right for your lifestyle in the years to come. You don’t have to buy a home to be happy, though. If you’re not quite sure what you want, rent for a while, then decide on something you really love.
Bank those Profits
If you made money on your home, the last thing you want to do is go on a spending spree. Instead, put the money away for your next home or at least invest it in something that will pay dividends down the road so that when you do decide to make another home purchase, you have the cash needed to obtain a mortgage.
Start Packing
The last step is maybe the sweetest after you sell your home. Begin packing all of your stuff so you can get out as quickly as possible. You may want to contact a removal company for help if your move date is sooner than you can actually manage to get everything done.
As you shop for your new home, or if you’re still trying to sell the old one, contact Doorsteps for help.
