If you are going to sign up a contractor, Landscaper, etc. Before a signing up with these or any other business, I recommend calling the Seniors vs Crime Office in Brownwood
and inquire regarding the data, background etc they may have on the specific business you are planning to sign up with. The Brownwood phone number is 352-753-0702. They are open Tuesday-Thursday 10-1PM

John and Nancy CONGRATULATIONS !!!
We recently purchased a pre-owned home in the village of Glenbrook (its north of 466 and an older home). We used Lisa as well and she was marvelous to work with but we decided on pre-owned and found more to our liking using the MLS. We ended up using Doug Lange from Realty Executives and he is just amazing!!
We also are not moving in until October and are planning on re-painting the interior and adding epoxy to the garage floor ASAP. Dennis and Integrity First is also our home watch guy and he is great. We are using Massey for termites / bugs/ weeds and lawn services. They may cost a little more but they get things right. We plan on furnishing our home from the consignment shops that are everywhere in and around TV. Only planning on moving our bedroom and living room furniture and personal belongings. We will still maintain our house here in NE PA for a year or 2 before its ready to sell. We also will need a golf cart.
I am disappointed that we cannot get FIOS in our area, but i am still researching which internet provider to use. We have Comcast up north andits outrageously pricey.
What part of PA are you coming from??

You have ample time to argue about what to get rid of and what to bring with you. I won sometimes but we still have over thirty winteruse jackets belonging to dear husband. He says I kept too much kitchen stuff. lol

It is very hard to get rid of treasures that no one wants.

It will work out. You have made a very good life choice.

Welcome home.

We used Steve Kling Painting (352 750-0426) for our lanai floor, entry concrete and garage floor. It is best to have this done before bringing things down. This past year, we ask Steve to return to paint the outside of our house.

Think about where you are going to put each piece of furniture. Don't bring it if you do not have a use for it. Order new furniture for delivery when you arrive if you can. (Just reread your post and see you already have this in mind. Good thinking.)
Get ride of stuff you have not used in years.
Your garage will probably be a storage area for items that can take the heat. Think about shelving and what you will store there.
Line up your auto insurance so you have the paperwork to register your cars as soon as you get here. If you have a lien holder you need info from them. Assume you have home owners insurance.
If you do not do your own income taxes keep your current person for the year you move. You will have a part year return for your current state and you may not find someone here that knows your state.
Make your moving arrangements now. Consider if you can get a better deal if you move in the middle of the month do that.
Consider getting to the home a couple of days before the movers. This means pack some supplies in your car to get you through the first couple of days or if the mover gets delayed.
Assume you have a will, poser of attorney etc. If not use a FL attorney. If you have these documents they should be ok but still is a good idea to discuss with an FL attorney. For example the executor of your will has to be a blood relative or a Fl resident.

If you are thinking of crown molding or wains coating, do it before furntiure is in.
