A REALTOR’S LIST OF “TO-DO’S” AFTER CLOSING ON YOUR NEW HOME

When asked “what is your advice to home buyers who have just purchased a home”, a group of Realtors came up with the following list:

  • Change the locks
  • Change the garage door opener codes
  • Change the utilities into their name
  • Set up an annual service contract for heating and air conditioning units
  • Pay your mortgage on time
  • Check to see if your property is assessed at the correct value
  • Keep copies of closing documents to refer to when it comes time to sell or refinance the home
  • Hire a cleaning crew to clean the home before you move in
  • Suggest upgrades/updates to the home
  • Review where gas and water shutoffs are located
  • Be aware they will be receiving junk mail now that they are homeowners
  • Ask for a referral
  • File mortgage exemption forms
  • Get vents and dryers cleaned
  • Get an energy audit done on the home
  • Change washing machine hoses
