Three Things Every Buyer Should Do

I’m going to close out this hour of the show with a checklist for anyone buying a home. Four things that every home buyer should do right away when they move into a new house. Are you ready? Here we go.

The first thing check all the smoke detectors. Sure, I know your home inspector would have already done that, and if the smoke detectors weren’t working? You would certainly know about it. But for your own peace of mind, test them yourself. Or better yet, just take ‘em out and put in new ones. Why? The reason I suggest possibly taking them out and putting in new ones, is that the new smoke detectors out there last for 10 years. You never have to change the batteries…instead you change the whole smoke detector, once every ten years. So if you put in one of those, you won’t have to worry about it for a decade. Again, that would be number one on my list, check the smoke detectors or toss the old ones and get new ones.
