You did it. You moved into a new home you love and now you’re dreaming
of how you’re going to decorate it. But before getting into all of that, there
are still some other tasks that need to be at the top of your priority list.

Changing the Locks

Double check them even if you’ve been told that there are new locks
installed. It’s better to take safety measures and know that no one else has
keys to your home. Call in a locksmith if you want to spend a little money or
it can be done yourself.

Call an Exterminator

A great exterminator can take care of any pests that have been lurking in
your home.

Get the House Cleaned up

If it isn’t already, clean out the refrigerator, wipe down counters, cabinets,
oven if needed, and plumbing fixtures. Prior occupants might have had pets
or young children so it’s best to steam clean. This will free your floors of any
junk or allergens.

Mechanical Equipment Cleaned

Getting your heating and cooling systems cleaned is crucial and make sure
to get a service contract just in case it stops working suddenly.

Get some Closet Organizers

Keep in mind of where everything is going to get placed so it can
accommodated in your closet space. A shelf or a coat hook can go a long
way for making room for organization.

Meet the Neighbors

You want to reach out to your neighbors as soon as possible. It’s good to
establish yourself within the community and you can get advice on some
home repairs like which plumber to use.

Having these as priorities will help you move into a clean, working home.
And then, you’re ready to move in with all your belongings and start
making it yours!
