A suggestion for new homeowners: Change the locks ASAP!

Change the Locks!! This is so important and something that many new buyers forget. I just sold a home...traditional sale...and at the close of escrow my seller told me that some people would be dropping spare keys off at the office.

So along came...the gardener, painter, pool guy, all three children,  6 grandchildren, pet sitter, and several more people that I do not remember the association...

So, please first things first...change the locks!

A suggestion for new homeowners: Change the locks ASAP!Whether you buy a brand new home, a decades old resale, or a foreclosed property, the first thing that any new homeowner should do after settlement is change the locks.

Many new homes have a master system, and untold numbers of contractors may have been issued keys. Over the years, a resale owner may have given many keys away to friends, neighbors, or relatives. And of course, nearly EVERYONE has keys to REO properties.

There is no way of knowing who has keys and if their intentions are malicious, but locksets are relatively inexpensive and the fix is an easy one.

And for peace of mind and a good “first-night” sleep it should be done as soon as possible.
