Seven Safety Tips for Your New Home

When you first move into your new home it is a good idea to take care of a few small things that can make a big difference when it counts.
1.Change the locks on all your exterior doors.Unless your house is brand new you never know how many strangers may have a key to your front door.
2.Replace the batteries in all the smoke detectors in the house.Record the date in your calendar so you will remember to do the same thing next year!
3.Unless your heating/air units are new, have the vents and filters cleaned or replaced.

8 Tips to Guide Your Home Search

1. Research before you look. Decide what features you most want to have in a home, what neighborhoods you prefer, and how much you’d be willing to spend each month for housing.

2. Be realistic. It’s OK to be picky, but don’t be unrealistic with your expectations. There’s no such thing as a perfect home. Use your list of priorities as a guide to evaluate each property.

3. Get your finances in order. Review your credit report and be sure you have enough money to cover your down payment and closing costs. Then, talk to a lender and get prequalified for a mortgage. This will save you the heartache later of falling in love with a house you can’t afford.
