5 Important Things to Check for in a New House

By July 6, 2016 No Comments

Buying a new home and then moving into it can both be challenging and exciting at the same time. However, there are important things that need to be fixed so that your transition into the new home is not filled with problems and setbacks. Some home buyers might have the luxury of gradually moving into the new house but for some, the move is urgent and so no home remodeling Las Vegas could be done yet. To help you stay organized here is a list of 5 important things to check for when you move into a new house.

1.      Locks

This is one if not the most important things to prioritize when moving into a new house, for security reasons. This goes for the garage door too, so don’t forget that. When a house is set up for sale, there are several people who were likely given access to it such as the maintenance workers and realtors. If it has an alarm system, change that too.

2.      Moisture Stains

Hopefully, you were able to have the place inspected for water damage and molds. The inspector should have noted discolored rings on drywalls and other signs of damage. Your Las Vegas home remodeling plan should include a remedy to these structural problems.

3.      Circuit Breakers

You should know where to go to turn off all the power in the house in case of electrical fire. This way, you won’t need to fumble in the dark when there is a power outage. Circuit boxes could usually be found outside the house or in the basement.

4.      Carpets

Carpets should be given some deep-cleaning. Although the previous owners didn’t have furry friends staying with them, a small fee given to professional carpet cleaners is well worth it instead of suffering from allergies.

5.      Heating and Cooling

An old filter could cause system failure or it could be consuming more energy than it should.  Replacing old filters twice a year could lower your energy consumption, according to Home Depot.
