Congratulations on the purchase of your new home!
Now that you have taken ownership of the property you will need to have your local services such as electricity, cable, and phone set up. Your real estate agent can help you coordinate the set-up of these local services. No doubt your agent already knows who the local vendors are for such services as water and electricity, as well as others, so he or she can help provide you with a list of contacts. Also, you should already be aware of the expenses that are typically associated with owning a home. Neighborhood Association fees, landscaping costs, and annual taxes should be budgeted for throughout the year.
