Seven things to consider when moving in.
Now, then, let us get to the purpose of this post.
Here are seven things you need to consider before moving into your new house:
- Does the floor need work?: If you don’t like the floors of your new home, it is always better to work on them before moving in. Doing so will help you avoid furniture getting in the way of your re-hauling at a later time.
- Do the walls need a new shade?: Do you want to repaint the walls? Make sure to do it before you inhabit your new abode. For it is easier to paint an empty room than moving around the decor.
- Do you want crown molding?: Who doesn’t love crown molding in their house? But, should you endanger paint splashed on your belongings to get them? No. If it’s affordable for you, it is better to do it when the house is empty. Better yet, do it before you paint the walls.
- Do you need electrical upgrades?: Unless you are moving into a house that was recently built, you may need some electrical upgrades. Any and every electrical work is better done before you move into your new place.
- Do you need new closet systems?: Having maximum storage space is a dream of many. Therefore, it is no surprise that many install closet systems in their new place. However, like other home projects, you will be better off doing it before moving in to avoid living out of a suitcase for a few days after you arrive.
- Does the garage need fixing?: Do you need workbenches and storage shelves in your garage? It is a few days of work that you can better spend when you are still in your old home.
- Changing your locks and keys: This one is obvious. You certainly do not want the old tenants or the neighbors to have a key to your place. Therefore, you need to change your locks and do so before moving in to prevent safety hazards.
Be it an older house or a newly-built one; your new home is brand-new and dear to you.
Therefore, moving in should be a relatively relaxing process, which you can only achieve if you have taken care of the re-hauling beforehand.
With that in mind, are you move-in ready, yet?
