Top 7 Mistakes People Make When Moving...

Confused 

 

1. Spending beyond your budget. Be aware of the hidden costs when buying a home. Consider the financial obligations beyond a mortgage that add to the cost of homeownership, including: city taxes, utilities, insurance, and maintenance - not to mention the length of a commute, given the fluctuations in gas prices. And remember updating expenses such as granite counter tops, plantation shutters, or a pool or spa.

 

2. Not researching your new community. Use the Internet to research real estate listings and to learn about your new home, city, local amenities, school ratings, crime rates and children's activities. Talk to parents in the community who can provide firsthand insight on the topics that are most important to you. Make sure to understand your neighborhood by day and by night before moving in.

 

3. Lacking a household inventory. Use photos, video, or a notebook to document valuable items. This will help you file a claim if an item is lost or damaged. Store them in a moving file or on a thumb drive.

 

4. Not watching how boxes are organized. One of the most common mistakes when moving to a new home is placing large items, like lawn equipment, next to boxes containing valuables in the moving truck. Keep a watchful eye on those packing for you if using a moving company.

 

5. Moving all belongingsNot everything has to go with you. Pack suitcases and storage bins as if you're going on a short vacation. Include essentials for the first few days in your new home. And take the time to separate items into sections of keep, sell, donate or discard before you pack.

 

6. Dismantling your electronic equipment without labeling wiresTake photos of the connections, and place the wires in a single box. Knowing how to reinstall your kids' computer games can be a lifesaver.

 

7. Not keeping important documents with you. Hang on to important documents so you can easily re-establish your lifestyle. These are needed at every stage of a move, from making travel arrangements, registering children for school and establishing new physicians using your prior medical records.

What is a Four Point Inspection?
Confused

 

 

When purchasing an older home, a 4 point inspection may be required to secure Homeowner's insurance. Citizens Property Insurance now requires this inspection for any homes 30 years or older. Many other insurance companies are also following this requirement.

 

A Four Point inspection consists of a basic assessment of the following:

  • Roof ("Roof Certs" are now included in Four Point Inspections)
  • Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC)
  • Plumbing
  • Electric System

Homeowners or buyers should contact their insurance agents to find out if this inspection is required. The agent will need the address of the home and the year it was built.

 

Amerispec uses the standard Citizens form to submit this survey. If your insurance company requires a specific form for the inspection, please have a copy available at your appointment.


 
Can a house fail?
 

This is not a pass or fail situation. It is an assessment. A 4 point inspection was designed to give the insurance company information needed for risk assessment. In many cases the insurance company will allow the owner time to make any necessary repairs or upgrades. Keep in mind that the upgrades the insurance companies are looking for will make the home safer for you and your family. Working closely with your insurance agent is the key.

 

Are General Home Inspections and the Four Point Inspection the same?

 

No...a pre-purchase inspection and a 4 point insurance survey are not the same.

 

The pre-purchase inspection is a comprehensive inspection that provides much more information and provides an in depth understanding of the true condition of the home. 

 

A 4 point survey does not give the buyer the same type or level of information; it is done so the buyer can obtain insurance on the property if required by their prospective insurance company. If you choose not to get a Four Point and your insurance company requires it, you may not be able to obtain insurance for the property.

 

If you have any questions or concerns regarding a Four Point Inspection, please email or call at any time, we are happy to help. (561) 401-9169   ghartman@amerispec.net    Cindy@HartmanFlorida.com
