The step-by-step guide to simplify your Pensacola move.
Being in a state of transition can be stressful when you're moving to a new town.

For your convenience, below is a step-by-step checklist of items to guide you once you're under contract on your new Pensacola home.

Begin Planning Your Move
Once an offer is accepted on your new place, a closing date will be set. This is the date of which you can take possession of your new home. If you're a planner like me, you'll want to starting planning your move and decide what you'll be bringing. Start reaching out to movers right away to find out their availability and respective costs. If you need to list your home for sale, I am glad to refer you to a professional Realtor in your hometown.
Arrange for Your Utilities
As a general rule of thumb, it's typically a good idea to reach out to utility companies at least a couple weeks prior to you moving in. This allows for the utility companies to schedule a service call for any equipment and setup services needed. I've listed our local Utility providers below for your convenience.
If you have kids, you'll definitely want to begin the process of getting them enrolled within the Escambia County School District. For your convenience, below is the link to find out the elementary, middle and high school closest to your new residence.
