NORCROSS, GA, January 23, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Foreclosures have become commonplace in our struggling economy, particularly in this state. Georgia had the highest foreclosure rate in the nation in May, 2012 - a stunning 1 in 300 housing units. While foreclosures are a tragic situation for those about to lose their home, they also provide a unique opportunity for families looking to relocate and save some money. The Atlanta movers of A. C. White address offer some tips to consider when moving into a foreclosed home.
Before planning your move, make sure you have thoroughly inspected the foreclosed property. While these homes offer great deals, they also present some safety concerns to take into consideration. Atlanta moving company A. C. White suggests taking care of the following items prior to moving in:
- Change the locks immediately to ensure the safety of your family. You never know what kind of situation the previous owner was in prior to moving out.
- Have the house and property inspected by a trusted professional, and thoroughly note any damage that needs to be addressed right away.
- Make sure water and plumbing are up to code, look for exposed electrical wiring, check all appliances, and call an exterminator to inspect the foundation and property.
- Check walls and floors for all necessary repairs, as they will be faster and easier to fix before you relocate.
