Use Your Home Inspection as a Guide
Your home inspector should give you a comprehensive report indicating the condition of all the major systems and structural parts of your home. Now is the time to figure out which of those items should be addressed sooner rather than later.
Have Your Locks Changed
Protecting your new home starts with having your locks changed ASAP. When a home is being sold, a lot of people have access to the keys. Having your locks changed and getting new keys should be something you do as close to day 1 as possible.
Have Your Gutters Cleaned
Leaves and debris can clog up your gutters and cause major damage if not dealt with.
Now that you’ve been in your home a couple of weeks, it’s a great time to pick paint colors and hire professional painters who will be sure to do an excellent job the first time and not leave one drop of paint on your furniture!
Organize and Clean
The best time to enlist the help of an organizer is in your first month in your new home! This gives you just enough time to get a feel for your space and where you want things. Now is also a great time to find a dependable and trustworthy house cleaning service to help you maintain your new home!
