Are you planning on buying a home in Central Oregon? If so, there are a variety of things that you should always replace in a home after you’ve purchased it including the following:
Replace the Locks on The Home
It doesn’t matter if you’re buying a new home in Central Oregon, or a used home, you should ALWAYS replace the locks for that home because you just don’t know who may have had access to the home in the past and buying new locks is the best way to protect yourself and your family.
Replace the Fire Extinguishers and Smoke Alarms
Another important thing to do when buying a Central Oregon home is to replace the smoke alarms and fire extinguishers because you want to have confidence that they are new and will be able to work properly should a fire break out in your home.
Replace the Toilets
Toilets should always be replaced when moving into a home because a leaky toilet can easily cost you thousands of dollars more on your water bills and a leaking toilet can also cause serious damage to your home as well.
Thankfully, most homeowners can easily replace their own toilets themselves and the average toilet costs less than $500 these days.
Replace Light Bulbs
Last of all, but most important, you should also replace the light bulbs in your home as well since old light bulbs use more energy than newer energy efficient bulbs and it’s just more convenient to move into a property with confidence that everything is done when you move in.
