5 Things You Should Do After Moving in to a New Home

Moving into your new Las Vegas home with Gavish Real Estate can be a fun and exciting experience! With all the excitement of getting into your new house, it’s easy to forget to do some of the most important things that you should do after moving into a new home!

#1 Do a Walkthrough

The first thing that you will want to do if you haven’t already, is to do a walkthrough of your new Las Vegas home to look for anything that may need updating or repairs immediately or in the near future. During this walkthrough, you should look for any water damage, cracks, and mold. Additionally, you should take this opportunity to get familiar with where important things are on the property such as the fuse box and the water main shut off.

#2 Set up Your Utilities

Once your new house looks great and you’re ready to spend your first night in the new house you will want to make sure that your utilities have been set up! You can transfer your electric, cable, and internet bills over ahead of time so that you don’t have to spend the night in a house with no light or water!

#3 Prioritize Repairs and Upgrades

Now that you’re in your new place and you’ve completed the walkthrough successfully, you should have an idea of what needs fixing or what you would like to improve eventually. Make a list of any updates, repairs, and changes that you want to make and prioritize them from urgent upgrades that affect your life (like a new water heater) to less pressing changes, and go from there.

#4 Change Your Legal Address

Most states require that you change your legal address within a set period of time (usually within 30 days of moving). This is legally required of you and you may face penalties if you fail to do so, so it is important that you change your address as soon as possible.

#5 Meet Your Neighbors

Finally, once you are all settled in, it’s time to meet your neighbors! It’s proper etiquette to introduce yourself to your neighbors. If they are extra friendly, they might introduce themselves to you! This is a good way to get off on the right foot with your neighbors in the event that you need help navigating the new part of town or just want to know some people in your community.
