When Can you Move

When do you need to move? When can you move in? Is your time frame flexible? This may be already predetermined due to a change of employment or relocation. You may need to arrange for temporary housing or move part of the family first, then move the remaining family members.

Being flexible on when you can move in can be an advantage.

We are here to help you every part of the way and make your move smooth.

These fees are not related to your mortgage. You also will need to determine how much you need to put down and what type of loan you qualify for by working with a mortgage specialist.
