We are moving out of our hose on March 11th & auction Date is March 22nd. I don't want to let go the Cash-For-Keys from the bank. I have blinds on most of the windows & where I don't, I plan on keeping the curtains hooked on, so that no one can peep in. I also plan to leave behind door mats & one of the light bulbs in the front switched on. I'll ask my friend next door to check the mail for me every few days on my behalf. I am going to sell everything in the house that I don't planning on taking with me when I move i.e. Refrigerator, Washer/Dryer, etc. Not sure how the cash-for-keys work. Are they going to do some kind of inspection of the home. Visit frequently to check if someone is staying? If they come during the day...it could be for a reason that my wife & I both work & obviously we wont be home at that time. Would they hire a person like a Realtor to visit us in the evening? What are the other things I need to keep in mind? I read somewhere that the realtor would come down the day we move & give the check in hand. if that is the case then we don't stand a chance. Would appreciate your inputs.
