A Realtor's Perspective on Reno – Lifestyle, Business, Family
Once you get the keys to your new home … one of the most important things to do is to Get Rid of Them!
Seriously, whether buying a new or resale home — top on your list of “must-do” chores BEFORE moving one piece of furniture in is to Change all locks! Even on a new subdivision house.
Here’s why: Who knows how many people have keys to the property? The former owners, a property management company, builders, workers, cleaning people, the ex boyfriend/girlfriend of three previous owners?
How to do it: Replace the entire lock — or “rekey” the existing lock.
