Don't Forget the Little Things!

Leaving your home or apartment sparkling and clean before you move is more than just a courteous thing to do. It can also help potential homebuyers see your property's charm. Renters who clean before moving are also more likely to get their security deposit back. Make a checklist of rooms and spaces you need to tidy up before the big move. Buy the appropriate cleaning supplies for each area. Take the time to address any repairs or damages to improve the odds of seeing your security deposit. To avoid any surprises, speak with your apartment manager to verify the terms of your deposit.

Homeowner's Insurance

Most mortgages require some sort of homeowner's insurance to help protect against unforeseen hazards and accidents in the future. But how do you know if you have the right and best coverage for your home? Our insurance concierge experts can help you out! We work with major providers to get your the coverage you need for home and auto.
