Your Post Move-In Checklist

You did it! You have successfully moved into your new residence. Now it is time to make your new house a home. Enjoy the opportunity to create new memories as you fill your home with the old ones. 

Follow these tips to make your transition as smooth as possible.

Deep clean

  • If you did not write this into the contract for your new home, schedule a DEEP clean. There is nothing better than the feeling of walking into a clean home the first time.
  • Check life-saving devices
    • Change out smoke and carbon monoxide detector batteries. Also, replace the smoke detectors if they are more than ten years old.
  • Get a new home warranty     
    • Home warranties are an extra peace of mind for your first year in the home and nowadays come with perks.
  • Rekey your new home
    • Many home warranty companies will rekey your home for free! If you did not get a home warranty, call a locksmith as soon as you move in to get new keys made.    
  • Get to know your neighbors
    • Getting to know your neighbors is not just social but also safe. The safest neighborhoods are where the neighbors are the closest.
  • Relax and enjoy it
    • As stressful as moving is, it also means new and exciting things are happening. Continue to breathe, take some pictures, and have a couple laughs along the way.
