Things Needed After Purchasing A Home

 

 

Now that you've signed all the paperwork and your loan is approved, it's time to move in.  But wait!  Before you put your feet up, there are a few things that you will need in order to make your new house a home.

 

Locks

 

Regardless of whether you purchase a newly constructed home or one that was formerly owned by someone else, it's important that you have the locks changed.  Everyone from Premier Beach Realty Agents and contractors to friends and family of the former owner may have a key, which is why getting new locks should be at the top of your list.

 

Furnishings

 

You can't hang your hat without a hatrack, so don't forget to add some necessary furnishings.  Some homes may include appliances and possibly even some furniture, but most homeowners prefer to decorate their house themselves.  After all, someone else's taste in decor may not necessarily be the same as your own.  If you purchase from a furniture store, they will handle the delivery for you.  Otherwise, you can hire a moving company.  

 

Appliances & Cookware

 

Even if your new home is equipped with appliances, you may still need to add a few items into the mix.  For instance, a coffee maker, toaster, microwave or blender may be items you want for your kitchen.  You will also need flatware, tableware and a quality dish drainer to hold your dishes that require the handwash method.

 

Tools

 

When you move into a new home, there will likely be some things to do that require the use of tools.  Whether you need to assemble furniture, a desk for your office or just need to tighten some bolts here and there, a good set of tools is a necessity.

 

Personal Touches

 

No home is complete without personal touches that represent the new owner's taste, so don't forget to include them on your shopping list.  Pictures, paintings, special window dressings, accent pillows, plants, decorative throws, accent rugs and bedding sets will create a custom interior that's all about you.  Other things to consider include portable air cleaners, water filters, an answering machine, wastebaskets and a bathroom plunger.

 

Outdoor Décor      

 

If you like to entertain, equipping your backyard accordingly is a must.  Patio furniture, an outdoor grill, landscaping tools and garden supplies are essential to creating an outdoor atmosphere that your family and friends are sure to love.  Speaking of the outdoors, don't forget to purchase a lawnmower and trimmer unless you live in a subdivision where lawn care is included in the maintenance fees.  If you live in an area that's prone to snowfall, keep this in mind when shopping for maintenance supplies.

 

The best way to tackle a large list of necessities is to keep a pad of paper nearby and write down each item as you think of it.  Think about each area of your new home and do a mental inventory of what is needed.  There will always be new items to add to the list, but you will cover the basics with your handy checklist of necessary items for your new home.
