3 Things Every New Homeowner Should Do
Moving into your new home is exciting, but our relationship with our clients doesn't stop at the closing table. This is why we wanted to bring you the three things every homeowner should do when they move into a home. We got the idea from American Lifestyle Magazine.
1. Get Out of Too Much Hot Water
Save some serious money on energy by checking the temperature of the hot water heater when you move in. Set it to 120F, and invest in a water heater blanket. This will save you money.
2. Invest in duct cleaning
If you can do this before moving in even better, but having a professional duct cleaning service go through your HVAC and dryer vents is really important. You could be breathing old germs from the former owners. Also getting the dry vent cleaned out can prevent fires.
3. Develop a relationship with your neighbors
You don't have to be best friends with them, but introducing yourself is a great way to make sure your move into the community is smooth. Doesn't matter if the couple is younger than you, or there is a little old lady next door, building community relationships are important.
