Home Owner Tips
NEW HOME CHECKLIST
- Update address with the post office
- Ensure all old utilities are canceled and new utilities are in your name (includes water, gas, electric, garbage, and sewer)
- Cancel old and set up new internet - take advantage of the new address to capitalize on potential promotional prices for new accounts
- Contact DMV to ensure they have your new address (changing counties will require additional updates) - ask also if this automatically updates your voter registration information.
- Review your bank statements - ensure all previous bill-by-mail accounts are updated to reflect your new address
- Update your address with everywhere you give charitably; this will save them money on returned mail.
- Change the exterior locks and make duplicate keys.
- Check to ensure smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are working.
- Ensure gutters are cleaned out and rain spouts are properly directed.
- Clean out cupboards and cabinets before filling them with your belongings.
- Vacuum rooms or consider getting carpets professionally cleaned before furniture is in place.
- Get all air ducts cleaned and hardwood floors refinished, if necessary.
- Review your inspection report for any updates or repairs that were recommended.
- Check with Auto and Home Owner Insurance provider to see if there are changes in policy amount. Different counties have different amounts due.
