Congratulations On Your New Home --- Now, Do This First!


Whether the road was quick and easy or a tour of one hundred plus homes, receiving the news that your home buying transaction has closed is indeed a great thing.  Congratulations!    

Now, Do This First!

You have been given the keys to your new home --- now change those keys!

Call a locksmith.


Who has a copy of the keys to your new home?

The former owners probably gave you all of their keys but who knows for sure?   Maybe they forgot....

The housekeeper?   A former housekeeper?

Kids?   Adult children?


A Handyman?  A contractor?

The gardener(who has the key to the locked rear yard)?

Did the house have a lockbox?  


You get the idea, right?


So call a locksmith and change the keys and YES --- CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR NEW HOME!  


Congratulations On Your New Home --- Now Do This First!
