HOMEOWNERS CHECKLIST

HOMEOWNER HONEY DO’S

We know how exciting it is to become a homeowner, but before you officially hang your hat in your new home, it’s important to take care of a few pre-move-in necessities. Which is why we’ve put together a checklist of the top to-dos that most homeowners overlook to guide you in the right direction of move-in ready.

SET UP UTILITIES

The basics of water, gas and electricity should be up and running before move-in, so set something up with one of your local companies or transfer your account to your new address.

TEST YOUR HVAC

This should be covered under your home inspection, but it doesn’t hurt to make sure for yourself that your heat and air conditioning are working and vents and  filters are clean.

REVIEW YOUR HOME

It’s a good idea to stay ahead of any potential problems by closely examining every square inch of your home for water leaks, cracks, open spaces and holes in the walls, floors, windows, doors and ceiling

CHANGE YOUR LOCKS

You may have the keys to your new home in-hand, but you can’t be sure who else has a set from the previous owner. For your family’s safety, change all the locks to your home.

CHECK YOUR APPLIANCES

Check all kitchen appliances and washer/dryer for working condition and make sure you have all owner’s manuals and warranty information on-hand.

GARBAGE COLLECTION

Find out from neighbors or call local officials to find out which days garbage and recycling items are collected.

BREAKER & WATER SHUTOFF

To be ahead of the game in case of an emergency, know where your home’s circuit breaker and water shutoff valves are located and label each control.

SMOKE/MONOXIDE DETECTORS

It’s so important to make sure all detectors throughout your home are properly working, and either replaced or batteries replaced if needed.

PREPARE FOR EMERGENCIES

Now that you’re at a new address, make sure everyone knows local emergency service phone numbers. And make sure your family knows where your new first-aid kit is located.
