Tips for Settling into Your Newly Constructed Home

Moving can be stressful, but it doesn’t have to be! Below are some tips to make it easy.

Creating a customized home takes many months and many steps, from choosing a new home builder to design to construction to final walkthrough. At the end of all of these steps, you will finally get to move into your dream home. Below are several tips for settling into your new construction home.

Ask Questions Freely

Settling into your new construction home takes preparation long before it happens. During the building process, close communication is key to ensuring clarity every step of the way. Never be afraid to ask your customizable home builder questions. With Ameri-Star Homes, you can be sure you have someone there to answer any question about the process you have. Ameri-Star provides generous standards and also provides many design options to consider and implement into your new home. The state of the art Design Center located in corporate office provide the ideal setting for collaboration before construction starts. 

The Final Walkthrough

During the final walkthrough, you and your home builder will look thoroughly at the house just before completion and note any details that still need addressing. You should also become familiar with the utilities and warranty information. Ameri-Star Homes offers a one-year walkthrough, a 10-year warranty, and a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Leading up until settlement, there is a detailed orientation led by the Ameri-Star constructional professional outlining the operation and systems of your new home.

Keep Deadline Flexibility

Moving day can be hectic. Ameri-Star provides clear lines of communication during the building process to coordinate your move.  There are many moving parts including supply chain, material availability, required inspections and more. It’s always best to provide some leeway and communication with the sales representative will assist in making those decisions.

Final Preparations

Final preparation includes making a list of all the services that need your change of residence information, such as insurance, driver’s license, credit cards, magazine subscriptions, banks, etc. Next, research a mover that has fair pricing, no hidden fees, and a great reputation. It is best to schedule your moving day weeks or even months in advance to avoid a last-minute rush.

Finally, it’s time to pack. Yes, packing can be tedious or stressful, but you can make it far easier by packing decorative items first, and then more substantial items, marking each box along the way, and making an inventory of what you have. Whatever you aren’t taking with you is for the dump, charity, or yard sale.

Moving Day

Finally, the day has arrived for you to settle into your new construction home! Have a plan for your kids and pets for how they can help or where they might stay. Know how to turn on the utilities, security system, etc. The final step is getting the keys either at the closing table or just before settling in.
