Anyone else moving in the next few weeks? I’m relocating from Chicago to Morristown, NJ at the end of the month and feeling a bit nervous about it. Buying a house there so I can’t postpone.

Morristown is tons of fun! Great area! I grew up around the corner. Relocated to northern Virginia because jersey is too expensive. I really miss the food. Go to star tavern, godfathers pizza next to the train station, and literally every bagel joint. Best of luck!

We’re moving across the country next week (VA to CO). In preparation for the move we did all of our moving estimates over FaceTime and it’s been easy to purchase moving supplies using social distance. Our house closing was handled by mail away.

We’re packing up ourselves and will be using social distance with the moving crew when they arrive to load.

The “worst” part for us will be the drive with the family to move our 3 personal vehicles, 2 dogs, and various household plants plus two kayaks (what a caravan). Restaurants are not open for customers so we will need to time things like bathroom breaks carefully in rest stops and gas stations (ugh). It will take us 2-3 days to complete the drive.

The virus has not changed our plans it has actually made us more focused.

Can you afford the mortgage in NY and rent in Chicago ??

Or are you able to use COVID to push down the close date? I feel like banks would work with you, maybe the owner will work with you.

VP, just keep all precautions while you are moving. It should exciting time to move to a new place, under these circumstances it is just more stressful than enjoyable. I hope once we take virus spread under control and things will gradually get to normal - you will enjoy your new surroundings in full㋛

Just had Biometrics taken today, I see the new estimates for EB GC have gone through the roof. Anyone that has gone through the GC process recently has any insight on what is a realistic timeframe based on the stage in the process?
