Thank you so much! How great is that! Good job! Looking forward to meeting everyone -- looks like our closing date will be mid-January rather than December -- bummer.

Default What is first on your list?

We are closing in a few days on a pre-built home in Sanibel (Unit 175), and we were wondering what are the first things most homeowners get done after you get the keys?

We have chosen to get the Garage floor epoxied, and attic stairs installed on the second day after closing. The whole process takes 3 days and 2 days of rest before we should put anything on it. Next, we have scheduled the delivery of a Washer/Dryer, and have made arrangements to have the Moving Van deliver our furnishings.

The blinds and shades have been ordered, but they take a couple of weeks, (they will provide paper shades in the interim).

The new Living Room furniture, and Dining room set was also ordered, and they take about 8 weeks. Showcase Direct will be providing a loaner Sofa until our set arrives, and will have it in-place the day before closing.

Now we think we need to get someone for the lawn, landscape, and pest control. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. We are northerners, and do not know much about the types of grass, bushes, trees, or the pests that thrive down here.

We are still waiting to hear from Comcast, since they need to do a "site survey" before we can even order their service.

What else am I missing?

No rush, but when you have a chance, decide on an A/C company and decide if you want to sign up for their annual program that includes regular maintenance inspections and cleaning.

I picked mine by looking on the BBB web site and picking companies with A+ ratings and no complaints. It really makes a difference how good your company is, because if/when your system fails during the summer, you want someone who will respond quickly and effectively.

These are some good questions. However, most of us on this thread are new as well and I'm not sure we would have the answers. Would you mind posting this on The Villages Discussion thread so everyone can look at it and answer? I think we could all learn from this.

Thanks!
