One may think that a pandemic would cause home buyers not to be plentiful; however, because of the low interest rates, the Pandemic of 2020 made home buyer numbers scale to an all time high as home buyers began to seek out the perfect home for themselves and their families. Seeking out the perfect home and finally getting what fits for one can be overwhelming for some; therefore, many seek out advice as new homeowners. And, here, a few of the tips and advice for new homeowners, will be discussed. Let’s take a look as Alexander Djerassi would agree that these are some of the best tips.
First things first and if one is becoming a new homeowner, one of the first things that one can do for their new home and for themselves, is to find and seek out a good handyman who is trustworthy and reliable. The perfect handyman would be able to handle various odd jobs here and there. One should build a rapport with their handyman to ensure when little emergencies arise, one has the right handyman to call. Furthermore, even while moving in, one can be there to assist and help with various tasks such as hanging wall art and décor.
Another tip for new homeowners is to take one’s own time with renovation projects. Many move in and decide that there are some changes that they would like to make to their new home. So, it is important to approach projects one at a time. It would not be a smart move to start a massive renovation project all at the same time. Taking one’s time can enable one to pay for projects one at a time and save money.
Next, find a safe place to store all manuals and home warranties. Be organized with this information as, if and when, things come up, one will be able to find what is needed when necessary. Things happen all the time and to be able to put one’s hand on the needed information means a lot and helps one not to be overwhelmed.
This tip or advice for new homeowners is a very important one and that is to change the locks. One should get this done immediately and one should take the time to find a professional locksmith to do the job. Getting a new key and changing the locks is vital as one does not know who may still have keys to the house.
Replacing air filters on a regular basis is a tip that is truly simple good advice but also very important to keep air or heat, whatever the season, flowing well in the home. In addition, the fuzz, dust and dirt may have accumulated and built up while the house was just sitting waiting for a buyer. So, the house would need a new good filter to help the HVAC system. New filter helps with the overall efficiency and could lower energy costs.
Again these are just a few tips for new homeowners that even Alexander Djerassi would like.
