When you’re buying a home for sale in Long Beach or Lakewood, you’ll see the term “move-in ready” on a lot of real estate listings.

 

But what does that mean, and why does it matter to you?

 

What is “Move-In Ready” on a Real Estate Listing?

 

The term move-in ready means that the home is in great condition. You won’t have to make upgrades or repairs, and the house meets all the city or local government’s requirements (that usually includes plumbing, electricity, locking doors and windows, and passing some pest inspections).

 

Move-in ready homes are ready when you are. You might also see these homes referred to as “turn-key” homes.
