Choosing a New Place
If you have in mind what you are looking for and are confident with the new home you want to buy, that is a first great step. If you are not confident in where to start the hunt, it is common to search for real estate agents on the web to receive a rental list of places you have your eye on in the area. Start networking around the community and with friends and family members to spread the word and let people know you are looking for a new home.
Costs of the Move
Thinking through all the costs for the move will give you an idea of what your budget will be looking like for the big day. Costs add up including moving trucks, house cleaners, new furniture, electricity, and rental bonds.

Once you are settled in, that will be the time to set dates for when you can start paying off the money you were loaned.
