Buying a new home in Greenville is an exciting time and moving into your new home can be even more so. With that in mind, it’s not quite time to kick up your feet just yet. Before you get settled, it’s important to update your contact info and go over a few checklist items. Here are the top things to review/update for new Greenville homeowners:
Update Locks & Batteries
Ensuring the safety elements of your new home should be at the top of your priority list. It’s important to make sure that new locks are put on all exterior doors and that batteries for smoke detectors are updated. After that’s been updated it might also be time to consider setting up a new security system for the entire home.
Address Any Water Related Issues
If anything has come up in your inspector report you need to address it sooner rather than later. Any leaks or drips that seem small now might turn into something large at a later point in time and should be mitigated. This might even mean getting your hands dirty by cleaning out the gutters.
The thing about caulking is that it’s much easier to spot problem areas when the house is empty. There are nooks and crannies in every home and while some might seem very minor, now’s the time to seal them up. Time to do a walk through, make a list and make repairs accordingly.
As tempting as it is to rip open those packing boxes and start to decorate your new home, reviewing a couple of these homeowner basics will help set you up to enjoy your new home.
