A Total Guide For Moving Into Your New SW Calgary Home 

Making the move into a new home can be a daunting task and a huge adjustment for your entire family. Planning for this properly can make the experience more enjoyable and ensure that everything flows more smoothly. 

Here are some tips to help you make this transition: 

1. Remember to Officially Change Your Address

Before you move homes, make a list of any businesses you have personal accounts with and update your address. This includes: 

  • Banks
  • Insurance companies
  • Healthcare
  • Credit card companies 
  • Loan companies 

Also remember to change your driver’s license and car registration after you have moved into your new SW Calgary home.

TIP: One way to ensure that you don’t miss any important mail is submit a change-of-address to Canada Post. Canada Post requires you to purchase mail forwarding at least 5 business days in advance, so make sure to do this early online to avoid delays. 


2. Have Utility Services Set Up Before Moving In 

Utility companies often require notices to have their services installed at your new home. Be sure to check a specific company’s policy and order the installation so that all your utilities can be set up prior to you and your family moving in. 


3. Properly Store Any Important Documents 

It is very common for paper items to get lost or misplaced during a move. This can very easily get mixed up in the wrong box and end up in the trash. Some important documents include:

  • Closing paperwork
  • Receipts
  • Warranties
  • Bills

Make sure that all of these are put in a safe place and are accessible at all times during your move. 


4. Explore Your New House 

Before you move in, you and your family should get to know the ins and outs of your new space. Builders often host an orientation for owners and this is when you can discover key components of the house, learn about any existing records, and obtain any available operating manuals.

Get To Know Your New Neighborhood 

The Rise at West Grove Estate is full of new restaurants, parks, and pathways, so get to know these places, as well as your new neighbors. You may find new friends with similar interests, playmates for your kids, and/or valuable emergency contacts. 


5. Get To Know Your HOA Regulations 

If you live in a homeowner’s community, it’s critical that you understand the homeowner’s association guidelines. Every community has different rules and regulations, so make sure you know what is and what is not acceptable in terms of decorations, landscaping, and exterior fixtures.
