After Moving Into Your New Home, Now What?

Real Estate Agent with Lyon Real Estate BRE #00697006

Yes, it can be difficult to imagine that a buyer spends so much time accumulating paperwork to satisfy lender demands that there's not a lot of time leftover to ponder new living arrangements. When I think back to the time I last moved, which was 16 years ago, holy moly, I was very much focused on not having valuables broken or lost while being transported across the country. More so than on my destination.

There was so much going on, it was pretty much dealing with whatever was at hand in any given moment. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: What Buyers Should Do After Moving Into a Home.

Aren't they are supposed just to live happily thereafter? :)

Locks is an interesting topic. How many times would I call an agent and tell them the lock was not working, and then just push the door and it was unlocked? And how many times when this happens, just go to the back door and usually at least one of the other doors is open. Actually, the Sellers have a difficult time finding a key from it, they probably never used it.

I am by far not the example, but when we lived in a house in Palm Coast for 3.5 years, I did not have the key. The side garage door was always open. In a condo where I live we do not lock the front door... ever... I know, we are bad...

But this simply tells you how safe is the community, probably not the way to do things, so, yes, you are right, let them change the locks.

Hi Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents, I give a folder to all my buyer clients at the closing, the first item on the list is to change the locks. In all the excitement, they may neglect to do this one very important thing.

Elizabeth, there are so many details to take care of when moving.  I haven't for 17 years, and don't want to think about that thought!
