5 Tips to Prepare Your New Home for Moving in

Simplify your move and make your relocation process quicker by preparing your new home with these tips:

1. Change your new home’s locks

Once you’ve closed the sale and the new home is all yours, the first thing you should do is alter the locks on the property. This helps ensure the home’s security and gives you the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your new home will be safe and secure during your move-in.

2. Have the house professionally cleaned

While your new home will likely be quite clean when you purchase it, having it professionally cleaned is a great way to wipe the slate clean and ensure that you don’t have anything additional to worry about when you’re moving. After all, there’s nothing that says, “Welcome home!” quite like squeaky-clean walls and fresh carpets.

3. Give the walls a fresh coat of paint

Unless your home is brand-new or has just been painted, giving the walls and ceilings of the house a fresh coat of color can help it feel clean and fresh and ready for its new life. What’s more, adding a fun color to a room like a kitchen or study can make the space feel vibrant and exciting.

4. Arrange for the best organization possible

Before you move any of your items into your new home, try this tip: fill it with organizers. Ideal for homes that have limited or inconvenient storage space, adding organizers is a wonderful way to streamline the move-in process and ensure that you’re not feeling overwhelmed as your items begin to pile up.

5. Have your heating and cooling systems serviced

Your heating and cooling systems should be serviced as soon as you purchase the home. In addition to ensuring that everything is safe and operational, this approach also helps provide a clean slate for your move-in. Hire a professional to ensure things go simply and easily, and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing your home is functioning the way it should.
