Did You Change Your Address Yet?

By
Real Estate Agent with Cedar Rapids/Iowa City, IA KW Legacy Group S44645

Here are a couple of situations that have happened this week. 

 

The first one:  The buyer sent her new license to the new address.  She didn't want to chance it going to the old address and with the timeframe estimate, it seemed like a safe bet.  Luckily, the seller left it on the kitchen counter for us when we went through the house for the final inspection this week.  Whew.

The second one:  My buyer called me to let me know that a large package from Amazon was received at their house today.  It was for the previous owner, who moved a week ago.  Again, could have been bad if the buyer just kept whatever it was or opened it by mistake without looking first.  In this case, I picked up the item along with something the previous owners had left in the dishwasher, and dropped it off at the office of the listing agent.  She will deliver it to them today at their new home.

 

Moral to the story, the post office is not the only one that needs to know your address change.  Think about your financial institutions, your insurance, your Amazon and Paypal accounts, etc. We are sometimes on auto-pilot and they make it so easy on websites to one-click your way to an order.

 

It is good to know that there are still good people out there!

 

Keep smiling!

Hi Karen,
Timing for change of addresses is important.  Sometimes, though, the post office doesn't do things the way you expect.  My sister-in-law came to visit me for several months last summer so she put in a temporary change of address.  She had the date for the forward to stop but I still get SOME of her mail and the rest goes to her real address.  Kind of weird.

Good afternoon Karen. You are exactly right about this and it often doesn't happen timely.
