Closing was scheduled about three months in the future for October 31st. The home and termite inspections returned clear reports so we were ready to move forward. We knew that we did not need to be at the closing but we decided to come anyway. Our move-in date was still up in the air, but we knew it had to be after December 31st because of our pets (more on that later).
Our realtor, Kelly took us to the water department and electric utility and we had the service switched over into our names. We bought cell phones with Hawaii numbers and met with the cable people about getting service when we moved here.
