4 Things to Do Before Moving Into Your New Home

When you purchase a new home and you finally close on the purchase and obtain your new house keys, you are no doubt super excited to get into your new home as soon as possible. But before moving in there are a few things you should do to get your home ready to comfortably live in.  

Here are Four Important Things You Will Want to Do Before Moving Into Your New Home 

  • Repaint

Not all homes will need this but some do. Some homes may have a funny or undesirable color of paint on the walls that you were willing to overlook. Now is the time to put a fresh coat up in your favorite color (or a nice up to date neutral tone). It is so much easier to paint your house when there is nothing inside that you have to worry about moving away from the walls and into the middle of the room and then find tarps to cover it all up.  

  • Change the Locks 

This is very important as you do not know how long the same locks have been on your new doors and exactly how many people have keys to that lock or who they are. Getting new locks will help you to have peace of mind that only the people that live in your home have keys to it, and of course whomever else you decide to trust with a key to your home.
