What to Do Right After You Buy Your Home

Congratulations on your new Idaho home adventure! Owning a home is a fantastic achievement, and it's exciting to embark on this new chapter. While there are some tasks to take care of after closing, consider it a roadmap to making your house a truly comfortable and happy haven.


Here are some key steps to help you settle in smoothly:


Safety & Security:


  • Upgrade your locks: This ensures only you have access, giving you peace of mind.

  • Child & pet-proof your space: Keep your loved ones safe with essential precautions.

  • Review & update your insurance: Make sure your coverage reflects your new property and needs.

Settling In:


  • Change your address & forward mail: Ensure important documents and deliveries reach you.

  • Connect utilities: Get water, electricity, and other essentials running smoothly.

  • Get familiar with your home: Locate the circuit breaker box, emergency shut-offs, and appliance manuals.


Planning for the Future:


  • Review your inspection report: Address any repairs or maintenance needs based on its findings.

  • Create a home emergency plan: Be prepared for unexpected situations with a clear plan.
